What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

When I started with FFA I was a strong runner but never consistent. My Comrades time was always around 6h40min. FFA Coaching helped me to select races more effectively and not race too often. My best marathon has improved to 2h26 and Comrades to 6h04min!

2h26 marathon runner

FFA has helped me convert my former sports endeavors into a strong masters career where I have been in podium position on a few occasions including winning the SA and African Triathlon Championships for my age group!

SA Triathlon Champion

Training with FFA has had a significant impact on my running. They looked at my goals and formulated a comprehensive program for me based on my specific needs and catering to my potential. The track sessions that have been incorporated into my program have not only increased my strength and endurance but also my speed, and I believe this is part of what gives us FFA runners the edge! Marcél is an excellent coach who challenges, encourages and supports his athletes. I would highly recommend FFA to any runner who would like to take their running to the next level.

My online coaching program with FFA helped me to my first Two Oceans and Comrades marathon finishes. It was the first time working with a personalized training program and it made a big difference to my training and performance.”
