    My experience here at FitPro has been very fun, exciting and of course educational. The very warm welcome I received was perfect as I was scared on my first day. I have learned so many things here regarding fitness and it just keeps on getting better. I am planning on doing more courses at FitPro. It is the best fitness educational institute in SA.

    I am currently studying to become accredited to obtain my National Certificate in Fitness.
    An experience of a lifetime since the day I set foot at The Campus. Here I have found the best lecturers and mentors, a ray of different personalities and cultures, which turned into lifelong friends. I have learned a lot, from all lecturers, from observing different ways of training to professional methods of coaching. These specialised individuals made me much more confident in pursuing my dreams.
    A wise lecturer once told me, ‘What you don’t use, you lose!’ that motto stayed with me throughout my time at Fitpro. I always thought he meant it when it gets to exercising, that if you do not train all parts of your body, you will lose strength and muscle. But I have come to realise that he meant it more in real-life; if you do not even try to achieve something in life, you will never succeed in any case. Rather try to do your best and you will receive the best outcome after all.
    That is wat I want to do; I want to follow my dreams! I want to show the world what I am made of, thanks to Fitpro. I would truly recommend the Fitpro team if your passion is to pursue a career in fitness. Whether it is as a personal trainer or a group exercise instructor, or any of the thousand other things that they teach you at Fitpro.
    Fitpro, a truly unique and wonderful family.

    Thank you!

    Wow my fitness journey with Fitpro ……
    It started out as a need to occupy my mind and time as I was slowly slipping in to a rut with all the chaos
    happening around me fitness seemed close to home as I could relate to the physical aspect, little did
    know that I was starting a journey of self discovery. Having stopped studying over 20 years ago I felt the
    blood rush to my head when I saw the National Certificate in Fitness file, could not help but wonder
    what I had just gotten myself into keeping in mind at the age of 35 I still had no clear idea of what I
    really wanted to do. The Fitpro family took me through page by page of each module awakening a
    burning desire within me to learn more all the while reminding me that I am capable of achieving all I set
    out to do. The support, guidance and mostly patience through this learning process is nothing short of
    incredible. One year later 3 courses in “I have found myself” and happy to say this journey is far from
    over. Truly looking forward to the new door that has opened and all that’s to come.
