Our clients come from all walks of life and we pride ourselves on being there for them on every step of the way, including celebrating their personal achievements.
In this feature, we have Ian Wee, winner of the 2019 CrossFit Open (Singapore).
Ian has been an Olympic weightlifter and Crossfit athlete since Junior college. In 2016-2017, he was selected to represent Singapore in the sport of Olympic weightlifting.
Ian competed at various regional and international competitions, and held National records in the under69kg weight category. He is also a medical student at the National University of Singapore.
Last year end, Ian decided to increase his training frequency to prepare for the 2019 Crossfit opens in February and with great determination, he won! For that, he is qualified as the first ever Singaporean in history to compete at the Crossfit Games, which is the highest level of competition in this sport.
We have asked Ian a few questions about Physiotherapy and his experience in our clinic.
What made you decide to see a physiotherapist?
Recovery has always been an integral part of my training. Given the volume and intensity that I train at, recovery becomes even more important to ensure that I train well and safe. In addition, having an expert to assess my movement patterns, limitations, and weaknesses is important in order for me to optimise my athletic performance.
Why did you choose to come to PhysioActive?
My mum was a client of PhysioActive (Anthony), and she was extremely pleased with his service, knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. Also knowing that PhysioActive is probably one of the more established physiotherapy companies in Singapore, I chose to visit PhysioActive.
How was your experience the first time you saw your physiotherapist at the Jurong clinic?
I was very satisfied with my first encounter with Anthony. He was extremely patient and detailed while trying to explain to me about the issues revolving my ankle. His assessment of me was very accurate, which allowed me to better understand the limitations of my body structure and movement. He is also very friendly and approachable to chat with. He also had a long-term plan for me leading up to the Crossfit Games, which I appreciated fully. It shows that he has vested interest in my progress.
Would you recommend PhysioActive?
Yes, I would definitely recommend PhysioActive because they offer a comprehensive range of services, and are staffed by very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional therapists.
The 2019 CrossFit Games will be held from July 29 to August 4, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, United States. GOOD LUCK IAN!
