Company Founder & CEO – Ranil Harshana
After completing my basic education in Exercise Science as well as receiving my Diploma in Fitness & Nutrition while also conducting Group Classes and Personal Training, I continued to further my professional education by obtaining further professional certifications from a number of Fitness Industry leading organizations. The list includes: the American Council on Exercise (ACE); American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM); National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM); International Sports Science Association (ISSA), Institute of Human Performance (IHP) – USA; as well as Performance Training Solutions (PTS) – UK, to name a few.
In addition, I hold professional memberships with the International Dance and Exercise Association (IDEA) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) – USA which also further provide me with the in-depth tools and training to help me better serve my clients and athletes to reach their goals in a truly substantive and comprehensive manner as possible.
Since 1996, I have helped my clients reach their goals,challenges in a specific time frame . My clients are diverse, and range from a variety of local professionals to international corporate executives, celebrities, diplomats, and professional models. Additionally, as these individuals have a wide range of goals and needs including (but not limited to): post-rehabilitation, those seeking weight/fat reduction, Pro-athletes seeking high performance , youth, teens, and others ranging in age from 9 years to 60+
Over my career I worked as the Strength and Conditioning Coach for Tennis with Sri Lanka Tennis Association (SLTA) handling Davis Cup and Fed Cup, paralympic and also trained coached/consulted many junior professional youth and adult tennis players for Wheel chair tennis, Davis cup, Fed cup, world juniors.

Now, with the creation of TENNIS BPM (R) and the publication of “Tennis Fitness” , I have outlines a practical professional Tennis fitness solution that will immediately improve competitive Tennis athletes’ sports performance or of any recreational non-Tennis playing athlete and offer a comprehensive value-add fitness professional certification program for fitness professionals.
