I am 27 and live in Pretoria, South Africa. I joined our local gym in 1998 when I was 16 years old and have been training there for 11 years now. Although I have never competed, I absolutely love training. I will be doing the Certified Personal Trainer course from NFPT this year and after that going for the Master Trainer title.
In 2008 I started an online supplement store here in South Africa. There is huge market for supplements and it seems to grow every year. Starting with only a few products, we now offer more than 30 of the best local and international brands (more than most of our competitor sites). It is wonderful to meet people that share your interests and to be able to provide all the top brands to trainers and clients alike.
I have been involved in sports since I was 7 years old and continued through High School. I am known as the local "gym rat" and I think I have one of the longest gym memberships of all 4000 members! My goal is to successfully complete my training courses, starting with the NFPT and also continue to grow our online store to be the preferred choice in SA. I also have a home based IT business and I also do freelance work for companies and individuals worldwide.
