Irving Henson

Irving has been providing fitness services in the industry since 1999. An outgoing, outspoken, what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of guy, he was the top trainer in one of the mega gyms before setting out on his own in 2003. It was Irving’s love for Vale Tudo ("anything goes" style of martial arts) and strength training that triggered his fascination with the study of human movement. His training principle is to train movement, not muscles. "The human body is like a machine. Our body parts work together as an integrated unit. NEVER individually. Training muscles will detrain the body's natural way of functioning rather than improve strength." Irving is a proud father and also a regular contributor of fitness articles to various magazines and publications. He also contributes to the health industry by giving lectures to student fitness professionals in Singapore.
