Get to know your therapist – Jing Ying
About Jing Ying
I’m an extroverted introvert; I can be outgoing and talkative, but most of the time I enjoy being alone. So sometimes when I don’t answer your call, it could be because I really missed it or I don’t feel like talking.
I moved out from my parents’ place at 21 years old, but we are not estranged, I love them. It was partly due to work, I used to work from as early as 6am till 10pm, 6 days a week at a gym so it was just more convenient to live closer to work. Also, I liked the freedom of staying alone.
My parents were really cool about it. I’ve a younger sister who is taller than me (annoying much) and 2 bunnies, Coco and Bailey. This is when they were 2 months old.
I also like to weight lift, because it makes me feel good about myself. I also enjoy playing soccer – its the best cardio ever. I’m always interested to learn new things, though sometimes interest doesn’t last. Like that one time I was interested in learning Spanish, I ended up dropping out after 18 weeks. Next on my list of things to learn would be playing the drums. One thing that I’ve stayed interested in for a long time would be investments. I’m learning how to build a portfolio to fund my retirement and traveller dreams.
What inspired you to become a functional trainer & massage therapist?
I started off as personal trainer because I enjoyed working in the fitness industry and I’ve played sports since I could remember and it was what I was good at doing.My journey as a personal trainer started off with a local boutique gym, I stayed there for about 2 years before deciding to take the plunge and going freelance. That was when a friend of mine asked me to take a sports massage certification with him. I was thinking why not, since I have clients who are constantly stiff and tight. And that’s how it started.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
The clients. I get to connect with people from different walks of life. Most clients teach me about something in life or show me different perspectives towards things. Conversations with them are largely meaningful.They are also really sweet. One client them handed me a book on investment after knowing that I am learning to trade.
