What a pathetic joke. Anyway, I'll leave that one there and that way when you post another then you will be soliciting and I can lock the account and delete all of them.

huh?...... First of all, his thread was dated on the sept the 10.....I was asking whether he has any success yet because if not I would make some recommendations...

Please explain to me why are you accusing me of soliciting when I am not even emailing him? If you want to delete my link, by all means go ahead, I dont need a link back from this forum. But I would really want you to explain to me why you think I am making a pathetic joke.

Who would you recommend? Yourself? That's not a recommendation - that's advertising and solicitation.

You do prove a point. My point. You only registered to provide a linkback. And now that you were caught you blindly flail out and spite yourself with "I don't need the linkback!" Then why did you put the link there in the first place with the added text to virtually replace you message? You were soliciting pure and simple. Oh, and if you didn't need the link why didn't you remove it so as to help prove to me you don't need it.

You need to get up a lot earlier in the morning.......

first of all, I did not recommend myself. I know a lot of freelance trainers around Revenue House, it is near Novena. They took up ACE course with me. A trainer which is ACE certified is a highly qualified trainer and it is good for this person.

I work in Fitness First One Raffles Quay, I cant train outsiders and I am not allowed to do freelance work. And One Raffles Quay is far from Novena.

I can recommend somebody for him as I know what is a qualified trainer and who is not. I work in Fitness First for over 5 years.

Can you recommend somebody for this person then? Are you knowledgeable to know which trainer is qualified enough to train this particular person as there are many fake trainers out there. If you do not then, please let the ones that know do the recommendations.

Secondly, you have absolutely no knowledge of internet marketing. My website is a squeeze page and every knowledgeable internet marketer knows that we do not need a link back if our website is a squeeze page. It has no use. It is a sig file and that is the sig file I use in other forums.

From what I understand about ACE, you may well have had the wool pulled over your eyes, unless you get continuing education after that 'basic' course.

You might want to have a read of this thread: http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ftopic46236.html

Oh, I don't need to know anything about marketing. All I need to know is this site's policy. Capise?

In the meantime I'll still be watching.......

I use the trainers at Sky Fitness which is excellent, however one of the british trainers set up on his own recently - his name is gavin and i an sure i have his details somewhere. he does diet advice, training - weights & cardio, some physio and stretching etc. If you are interested i'll ask one of the other trainers for his email address

Hi, could you share Gavin's contact details with me? Would you happen to know where he conducts training? Sky Fitness looks great but is unfortunately too inconvenient for me to visit on a regular basis. Many thanks.

Body-By-Rick.com - has anyone heard of this company- when I google PT SIngapore- his site came up- but entry after mentioned scam...So I am a bit wary of calling?

The googling for trainer is not so cut and dry- unless I am doing something wrong?
