What LIMITLESS means to me…

“LIMITLESS” is daring. We dare to go against the grain of the traditional quick fix that most transformation gym programs offer. At Limitless we dare to emphasise optimal health, sustainable science based diet and exercise because we don’t want to profit from detoxes, far burners or extreme diets.”​

“Forge a better version of yourself by embarking on a journey of growth and investing on your health”

He lives by his 3 values: growth, challenge and fun. Growing through challenges and having fun while doing it!

MJ comes from a rugby background playing Premiership level rugby in Hong Kong and recently The Philippine Volcanoes. He is no stranger to the physical and fitness demands of sports in regards to strength and conditioning.

Marco Orcino

Coach

“To be a better version of yourself, you should build healthy habits which contributes to the overall health such as mental, physical and nutritional health — to make you fit and boost yourself confidence.”

What LIMITLESS mean to me…

There’s no such thing as “limit” when it comes to health, since reaching a healthy well-being is a lifelong journey. To be a better version of yourself, you should build healthy habits which contributes to the overall health such as mental, physical and nutritional health — to make you fit and boost yourself confidence.

A lifelong fan of lifting weights – it has been Marco’s passion for years. He has been actively competing in powerlifting since 2011 and have not lost since, one of the motivating factors he uses with dedication in pushing himself to remain on the top. Marco has experience in Filipino Martial Arts such as Arnis & TRACMA, and has been a boxing coach for over a year to learn new skills, adapting them to different kinds of sports.

Marco believes health and fitness shouldn’t ever feel restrictive – it should enhance the life you want to live. Enjoy the process of being a work in progress.  A philosophy he educates his clients on as he loves seeing his clients achieve and/or surpass their fitness goals.

Fun Fact: Basketball is something Marco is still keen about, since playing passionately back in the day.  He still makes an effort to play once a week for a good conditioning workout and for skill retention.

Emily Tan

Emotional Fitness Coach

​Health is wealth we take for granted until illness collects its debt. Take ownership!

What LIMITLESS means to me…

“Pragmatic and positive attitude to doing the hard things – when we adopt this in our lives, detours and obstacles are limited to their power. We are the authors of our lives, write well, edit often, that includes our embodiment of limitless living – move smart, live loud.”

A self-described ‘jack of all trades’, Emily is a fitness professional and course educator with over 15 years of experience in the wellness industry.  A co-founder of an aerial arts and pole dance academy, and an educator for the arts teacher training courses, she has worn several hats as a performer, practitioner and teacher in the modern circus arts space.  She hosted and choreographed the TV series Body Blaze on LiTV and has been featured in numerous magazines including CosmoBody HK, Hong Kong Tatler and The Star News Online.

Emily is also a cancer survivor. Diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2018, she dropped all her professional commitments and took time out for herself, spurring a period of self-reflection, which she now sees as sorely needed. Her years spent working through her own mental adversities under the guidance of clinical psychologists and healers, reinforced the philosophy that health is beyond aesthetics. Emily’s movement-integrated healing journey further launched her into advocacy work for mental agility and wellness through projects, like the podcast Tackling Minds and an upcoming movement called Mental Muscle.

Fun fact: Emily won her first international pole championship in 2010, placed second in her first physique competition in 2016 and aspires to learn mounted archery

Rachel Lopez

Coach

“I believe there is no limit to what you can achieve. Live according to your values, trust the process and reach for your goals. You can be whoever you want to be and you can do whatever you want to do. The possibilities in life has no boundaries.”

“I believe there is no limit to what you can achieve. Live according to your values, trust the process and reach for your goals. You can be whoever you want to be and you can do whatever you want to do. The possibilities in life has no boundaries. “

Rachel believes that pursuing health isn’t as binary as “eating less and smash workouts every day” – it’s about taking care of your body, mind and soul for it to truly serve you well.

What makes her happy about working with clients is that she gets to help unlock their potential – achievements, big or small, all contribute to the collaborative dynamics of coach-and-client. A bonus is being in the position to witness looks of surprise and pride when someone does something they couldn’t do, or thought they couldn’t do. Those moments are powerful affirmations that Rachel is doing something that feels right.

In the period of her professional training, Rachel has wasted no time in acquiring and refining her skills and education. She has completed education with Poliquin Personal Training Level 1, GGS Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach, Pre-Post-Natal Course for Personal Trainers by NASM,

GS-1 Women’s Coaching Specialist Certification, ASP Education International in “Nutrition” and in “Fat Loss & Physique Transformation”

Fun Fact: Rachel loves cooking and recreating recipes at home. Shad worked in the F&B industry for almost 8 years before shifting her purpose to Health & Fitness.

Favorite foods…
“I love food in general but you can never go wrong with a plate of steak frites. “

Favorite music…
“I love all kinds of music, it all depends on my mood.”

Jacqui Chan

Coach

“All life and systems on earth thrive when they’re in equilibrium. Health is not just physical – it is mental, emotional, social etc. and they all affect one another.”

What Limitless means to me

No matter your age, genetics, experience, or current health status, there is always room for growth & improvement. Often, we look at ourselves compared to “the best” and think it’s impossible. There is always a way to become a better version of yourself, and the possibilities are limitless if you can put your mind to it & find the right coaches/ tools/ methods to get you there.

Jacqueline uses an intuitive coaching approach in helping her clients discover their mind-body connection, coaching them in finding their optimum movement patterns, improving mobility, stability and strength for the long run.  She helps people live without pain, prevent injuries and enjoy the sports & activities at the level they aspire to

After almost a decade working in corporate, Jacqueline decided to explore her passion and extend her career  in health and wellness.  Having been diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager, she realised that much of her chronic pain and stress caused by a sedentary lifestyle is also something that a lot of Hong Kongers experience.  In the path of her own education to help her own physical chronic issues, Jacqueline found her path in corrective exercise coaching. She now helps everyday people live without pain, prevent injuries and enjoy the sports & activities at the level they aspire to.

Jacqueline believes that all life and systems on earth thrive when they’re in equilibrium. Health is not just physical – it is mental, emotional, social etc. and they all affect one another.  She coaches because she is the personal trainer that she needed 5+ years ago when she couldn’t find someone who could help her work around her scoliosis and physical limitations – in a safe and effective way. Today, nothing makes her happier than when clients tell her how good they feel outside of the gym – aligning with her health philosophy of balance.

Fun fact(s): When I’m not moving at the gym, you can find me doing acroyoga, swing dancing, and Barbershop-style singing.

Favorite foods: Too much to say, but the fun fact fav foods are BUTTER, creme brulee & tiramisu, chia puddings, and a BIG hearty homemade salad

Favorite music: soul, funk, 1920’s big band swing, jazz classics; lo-fi for the work/focus & chill/wind-downs
