Fitness From Africa was founded in 1998 by Marcél, a very competent runner with local and international racing experience at that stage. The vision was to build and develop runners at all levels and take their fitness onto the tracks, roads and trail arenas of the world.
Since then we have had athletes participate in their multitudes not only in South Africa, but also most of the other continents, including the big city marathons like New York, Chicago, Boston, London, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin, Frankfurt, and also at the World Masters Athletics Championships in France, the Pasatore 100km, Great Wall of China marathon, and many, many more.
Fitness From Africa now has a highly qualified and experienced coaching staff that pride themselves on being a people orientate business that helps guides runners to their training goals.
