SENIOR COACH
CHERYL FOO

Senior Coach and manager of the FuncFit Program

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Cheryl chanced upon a sport called Strongman when she was a student, and it’s life changing ever since. She then ventured into various sports like Weightlifting, Powerlifting, CrossFit, Dragon boat and Outrigger Canoe. Learning the different aspects and techniques of the sport, and eventually help others with her experiences and knowledge is what she enjoys most.

Her best achievement is winning the title of Singapore Strongest Woman in 2013 and 2015.

With her bubbly and cheery character, you’ll definitely have an awesome workout! Come join her on the weekdays!

COACH
Emmanuel Sim

Coach for FuncFit Program

“Be Kind, Be Better, Be Yourself!”

Be Kind, Be Better, Be Yourself! Those are the words that Emmanuel strives to achieve in his daily life and also in his coaching. Since 2015, Emmanuel has been deeply involved in the setup at Solitude of Strength, starting out as a member and slowly evolving into one of the coaches, imparting his own unique brand of “thinking” workouts to his Sunday Metcon class.

Involved in competitive sports since young, Emmanuel has always had a keen interest in fitness and finding ways and methods to sharpen his edge. He is often found trawling fitness websites for new ways to “inspire” his students and for shopping deals for new shoes and fitness gear.
Cheerful and always approachable, come try his class on Sundays and maybe he’ll share a deal or two with you.
