Nutrition Plan

70% of your training success depends on what you do in the kitchen! Our nutrition expert can give you specific recommendations for your personal situation.

Combined Expertise

The IGNITE Team consists of top trainers that bring different training styles and knowledge together. You are assured that you will get the best training advice and session from each category of fitness we offer. Unlike other places, here trainers work together to create fitness programs or coach you to achieve successful long-term results for you.

Post Rehab

The motive of post rehab is to bridge the gap you have between rehab and full physical fitness. The program is designed according to the injury you sustained while working in depth to achieve strength or full mobility in that region.

Company Training

Any company that invests in employees’ personal health development is investing in their own success. By providing ongoing training for your employees, you are creating a workplace that is adaptive, resilient, flexible and ready for change.

Expert training classes

Our classes are organized around four areas of fitness to give you the most benefits and help you reach your goals faster. To see the coming classes, check out the calendar.


This workout generally combines short bursts of intense exercises with an even shorter period of recovery time. The session is designed for 45 mins of non-stop PUMP. You will be using the kettlebells, TRX and your own weight as resistance. So get ready to feel that heart pounding to the beat!


You will learn the most important techniques, such as squats, press and deadlifts from scratch. This training is aimed at both absolute beginners and advanced users who want to improve their technique and gain power. You will be pushed to your limits and lift heavy under a safe environment. The trainer will guide you on how to increase your lifting weights while making sure you master each step to that!


This workout gives you strength, endurance, agility and speed in one. Obviously, here you get sweaty and you will feel the burn every minute. Give it all, power up and have fun.


Mobility has been forgotten by many but it is now making highlights again. Here in IGNITE mobility is top priority. We teach and educate you on the importance of mobility while incorporating it in all our training as having great mobility helps you to easily execute lifting and movement techniques at ease. So get moving!

What our clients say about us

4.8 out of 5 on Google

Since 2016, IGNITE.FIT has been helping hundreds of Berliners to get in shape and reach their fitness goals.

"I am so happy I found Sillse! I was able to become an enthusiastic runner once again, after struggling with any cardio activity for the last 8 years due to respiration problems. She always made me feel comfortable and safe which allowed me to progress quickly. Her expertise helped me to get an overall better form while running which significantly lowered the impact on my knees and prevented me from wasting my energy (not swinging my arms anymore around me).After 2 months of running with her, I felt comfortable for the first time to go on a run by myself in years. Her training had a significant impact on my overall health and I am super motivated to work out with her. Looking forward to the next milestones.

The training with Dinesh is really amazing. He adjusts the training to my personal needs and limitations while still pushing me in a healthy way. I never had a personal trainer before who understood the physiology of bodies so well. Dinesh truly focuses on the full picture to achieve your goals in a healthy and sustainable way. Really looking forward to when sessions are possible again!"

Get started with your training

"Thanks to training with Dinesh and Sillse every week (3x) and intermittent fasting (16-8) I was able to completely transform my body. Important to note that I was already training 3-5 times per week before and eating relatively healthily… I believe especially 2x per week training with heavy weights w Dinesh as well as balancing this with HIIT with Sillse was key. Also learning that was enough vs trying to train every single day was eye opening for me. Massive thanks to both Dinesh and Sillse for their help!"

The booked training sessions (PT incl. nutritional consultation, GPT) can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the appointment without deduction from the number of training sessions purchased by emailing or using the designated booking system. In case of later cancellations, the training units will be classified as completed with the consequence that the number of purchased training units will be reduced accordingly. If 3 booked training sessions are not cancelled within one month, IGNITE House reserves the right to delete all advance bookings made by the member up to this point. The member is at liberty to then re-book available appointments.

Term, contract extension

If a membership contract with a term of up to 4 weeks is not terminated with four weeks' notice to the end of the respective term, it is automatically extended by 4 weeks in each case. The same applies if all units of the respective term have been used up. In this case, you have the choice between starting a new term and upgrading to a tariff with more units. The difference is due immediately. Notice of termination must be given in writing in accordance with clause 15.2 and must be received by IGNITE House in good time; an email does  satisfy this written form requirement. The relevant start of the contract is decisive for termination at the end of the minimum term.

Suspension of the membership contract. The member has the possibility to suspend his membership. A period of rest comprises 7 consecutive days. A fee of 10 Euros shall be charged for each rest period commenced. The number of rest periods is not limited.

Dinesh Ramakrishnan

My Strengths: Strength and conditioning programming & training, body toning, Postural and Motor Behaviour correction, Post Rehabilitation, Pre/Post Natal training, Mobility & Stability Training & Multi Level Functional Movement training.

Born into a family of fitness enthusiasts & doctors, from a young age I have actively engaged in sports like wrestling, football, rugby and powerlifting. During my military career I suffered two injuries to my lower back (herniated disc) and shoulder (rotator cuff tear) which changed my career pursuit as an engineer to a sports scientist. I was eager to figure out a way to rehab myself in quick time to enable me to move around without painkillers and do what I liked. So the journey started and I was able to achieve what I wanted, ever since then I am passionate about inspiring people to become a better version of themselves against all odds physically and mentally.

I combine a scientific background from my studies with years of international working experience in the field of sports and sports rehab to allow me to effectively coach a wide range of clients to move freely without pain.
