"Save the Day" Michael Yap -- amongst friends, we call him the "Doogie Howser" of programming. Working with Michael gives us the same confidence as having that world class doctor when we need him/her most. He is really incredible, and his work is appreciated more than he will ever know. His leadership in this company is never overlooked and his willingness to "step up to the plate" makes him one of our biggest assets.

From the first time Chad helped us as a contractor, through today, we're blown away. His talent oozes from every piece of work he does; his intelligence in understanding the marketing behind quality internet graphic design is outstanding, and his accountability in getting the job done motivates us. He does not miss when he says he's going to deliver, and he makes time for all of those around him at the same time.

Bismark Yap

Bismark Yap

Client Care

Bismark gives a personal touch to a very impersonal industry. Reaching out to everyone of our new clients to ensure customer satisfaction is often times a thankless job. His ability to explain our programs and give guidance has helped hundreds of our clients to get started and stay on their path towards health and fitness.
