Class Instructors > Aries Ong Ban Kiat
Diagnosed with thalassemia, a hereditary blood disorder, Aries had always been weak and easily fatigued. Combined with a sedentary lifestyle and an affinity for fast food, Aries was obese. Beginning a "trim and fit" programme made him realise that he was seriously unhealthy, with a waistline of almost 40 inches.
From there, nutrition and an active lifestyle played a significant role in transforming and improving his life. After joining his first group-exercise class, Aries was inspired by the instructor, motivated by the music and hooked on the physical high.
A self-confessed tech and gadget freak, Aries is a User Experience expert by day, who aims to make this world more usable, one website at a time.
Aries is also proud to be part of the PURE family. He is full of energy, passionate about group exercise, and wants to share these gifts of life and fitness with everyone!
