Welcome to my blog, Fitness Cape Town. Here you will find a variety of fitness articles and information.
I have been living in Paarl and the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town all my life. I have been competing in various sport types in my lifetime but found my love for Martial Arts at an early age. At the age of 18 years old I received my black belt in Karate and two years later I graded for my 1st Degree Black Belt under Kancho Eddie Cave.
years in Martial Arts I took a break from the sport, due to work and family
responsibilities. In 2012 I returned to
the sport and got in contact with Sensei Ruhan Louw, Owner of Tricore Martial
Arts. In 2014 I was privileged to grade for my black belt in Kickboxing as
well under Shihan Josh Cloete. Two years later, in March 2016, I received my 2nd degree black belt after a grading under Shihan Pat Carney.
I was and still are very blessed to have the best Martial Arts trainer in Cape Town, Ruhan Louw. Since 2012 he was a mentor, trainer and friend, and thought me so much of the Martial Arts lifestyle.
During the above mentioned period I have achieved the following in the Sport:
break from Martial Arts I also took part in various other fitness related
activities and gained experience and knowledge in various aspects.
I achieved a certificate in Kata box (through Virgin Active). This is also well known to be Tae Bo. I assisted with group classes for Virgin Active at the Paarl and Cape Gate branches.
and 2012 I took part in Biathlon and represented Western Province in Oudtshoorn.
During 2010 through to mid-2012 I was privileged to receive personal training under Dieter Voigt, the 2007 Mr. South Africa. He took my training and health habits to new heights, and taught me a lot of the fitness related topics I know today.
Through out the articles in this blog I am sure you will hear a lot of my two mentors, both of which are still good friends of mine. I hope you will also benefit from the information that I will be featuring on my blog, Fitness Cape Town, that I learned from them.
