Hi! I am a running coach and writer always curious about sports science and helping people move better.


Where it all began…

Like many other coaches, I started off as a runner. I fell in love with ultramarathon and ran without a structured training plan. I just kept running and thought the body "would take care of itself" — and yes it did, until it didn't anymore. I suffered from plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinopathy, ITB syndrome... injuries that sidelined me for months on end. That's when I turned to sports medicine and began my journey in 2013 to find answer for a single question: How can I keep running without getting injured?

In my coaching practice at Maru Fitness, I combine my knowledge in manual therapy, strength & conditioning with a good dose of curiosity that I inherited as a business journalist (think about a geek who loves reading research paper). My mission is to help people from all walks of life to move better and injure less.

I also write a biweekly column about running on AM730, a Hong Kong-based newspaper. You can find them in Articles.

Shoot me a message if you want to know more. I look forward to helping you on your running journey!
