Ravi C. Ramkissoon is a veteran fitness instructor, a professional Thai Yoga Massage practitioner, and a trained Psychiatric nurse. His main focus for over twenty years surrounds Primary Healthcare and Holistic Wellbeing. This includes a great deal more than just drilling at the gym. Psychological balance, nutrition for optimal performance, proper execution of aerobic and anaerobic principles, as well as selective recreational and relaxation practices, all constitute the core of his coaching.
Ravi’s philosophy holds clients’ individuality as the cornerstone of his training techniques. He understands that everyone’s needs, goals, capabilities, and experiences are different. This particular talent manifests itself in the success he has had with multiple clients from all different walks of life. In 2003, his locally published book titled ”Destroy The Fat Forever” sought to help those having difficulties maintaining their ideal body weight, and it was also created to assist with dispelling the many dark myths engulfing fitness and nutrition. Some of Ravi’s certifications include a professional degree in Psychiatric nursing from the College of Science, Technology, and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago; a Certificate in the Art and Science of Coaching from the University of the West Indies; a Diploma in Fitness and Nutrition from Penn Foster College (Pennsylvania); and an International Certification in Thai Yoga Massage Treatment (both levels) from Lotus Palm, Montreal, Canada, (the largest Thai Massage School in North America).
Ravi currently owns and operates a Thai Stretch Massage and Health Workshop in his hometown of St. Augustine, Trinidad, West Indies, in the Caribbean called “Stretch It Out Thai Yoga Massage Therapy”. Here, he uses his training and knowledge in health, fitness, and bodywork therapy to be of service to his clients, and he does his best to live by the ethos ”one step at a time”.
