About Fitness From Africa
Fitness From Africa was founded in 1998 by Marcél Viljoen, 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 Iron Man events in Mexico, Malasyia, Nice, New Zealand, and many, many more.
[ Client Testimonials ]
I joined FFA in particular for guidance for my run and to increase my speed for sprint distance triathlons. The structure, coaching and training sessions at FFA are really of a superb level with support for all categories of coaching and advice on how to support the rest of your training. Not only did my run improve, but also my whole outlook on training and recovery!
Jnr SA Triathlete
I have been a client of FFA for over 20 years. Marcel has coached me in multiple disciplines. What I appreciate most about working with Marcel and the rest of the FFA team is their honest feedback and their understanding of the time constraints we all face daily. FFA understand the principle of quality over quantity, so their programs are extremely well structured, and every training session fits the end purpose. I’ve finished 3rd at the 50km Mont Sources Challenge, 7th UTCT 100km, won multiple Adventure Races and was able to achieve a 10hr08min Ironman.
As a newbie triathlete I was very intimidated my own lofty goals. I had no idea if the way I was training was effective enough. The coaches and environment at FFA took away all anxiety and just following the VERY personalised training plan helped me to gain confidence that I was going to be ready to stand on that starting line.
