We cap the class size for these workshops at just 20 participants to ensure a high level of coaching and practice. In each Ritual Masterclass, you’ll get an insider’s understanding of everything from biomechanics and progressions, to breath integration and programming. This is practical movement education at its finest. With each Masterclass, you’ll also get lifetime access to new areas of Ritual Academy, which is our in-house online ‘university’ that has educated Ritual Coaches around the world, across 4 languages.
This workshop is suitable for people of all fitness levels, but will be particularly interesting for:
1) Ritual members
2) Health and fitness enthusiasts
3) Coaches, Personal Trainers or Group Fitness Instructors
You don’t need to be a Ritual Member to join us!
What you get:
- In-depth, in-person, small-group workshop with the creators and curators of the Ritual Coaching Experience.
- Lifetime access to specific supporting materials and videos in Ritual Academy, our online ‘university’.
- Current members will get an additional 1 week added to their membership, and non-members will receive a complementary 1-week trial at a Ritual Gym of their choice.
Ian is a co-founder and CXO of Ritual. He is the visionary behind the concept and the Ritual Coaching System, and is ultimately responsible for everything to do with our client experience around the world, whether virtually or in-person. He has a Master’s degree in Strength and Conditioning and a background in psychology.
From 2010 to 2014, Ian represented Singapore as a competitive kettlebell weightlifter, winning the Hong Kong Championships in 2012, and ranking in the European Championships in Belgorod, Russia, that same year. Prior to that, he competed in Muay Thai, where he learned that getting hit in the face is really, really painful. Before starting Ritual, he founded and operated Thrive, served as Head Coach (Asia) for the Orange Kettlebell Club, and led the Strength and Conditioning program for FightG, Singapore’s first MMA school, all of which brought him around the world to both teach and learn from the best in the business.
Armed with a Master's degree in Sports & Exercise Science, Ash has over 15 years of experience in the industry. He’s been a Head Coach at Ritual since 2018, is the founder of Movement Restoration and a Master Trainer for several international fitness continuing education courses, as well as an educator for the American Council on Exercise.
Having worked as a Personal Trainer and Elite Performance Strength & Conditioning Coach, he believes in getting his athletes and clients stronger physically & mentally on and off the field. He is currently doing his PhD, and also serves as our Head of Science, responsible for course development and best practices within Ritual. He loves drinking coffee and reading books in his free time, travels when he can, and of course has a voracious appetite for kettlebell swings and Turkish Get-Ups!
Ismail (better known as Shrek) has been in the industry for over 15 years. He has been with Ritual since its inception in late 2012, and helped build the Ritual Coaching System that has certified well over 100 coaches around the world, with over 700,000 sessions completed globally (and counting!). He is our Master Coach, responsible for all matters relating to management and coaching quality across his teams in Singapore. He is also the founder of Lion City Spartans, Singapore’s first and largest Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) team, and Hybrid Strength Fitness, that provides specialised strength and conditioning programs to athletes.
Apart from his plethora of fitness certifications amassed over the years, he has participated in over 20 Obstacle Course Races (OCR) around the world, including the World Championships in 2016 and 2019. He has served as Technical Director and Head Judge for various OCR events, and is also a Head Coach for Spartan Singapore. He’s pretty famous in the OCR world, but many people don’t know he was also a competitive bodybuilder from 2008 to 2011, taking 3rd place in Singapore’s National Bodybuilding Championship in 2008, and then 1st place in 2009 and 2011 - all in the Heavyweight category. These days, when he is not crushing sets of burpees at the back of the plane on long haul flights, his own training revolves around what he terms as Physical Autonomy, using tools like kettlebells, maces and his own bodyweight in purposeful flows.
