Coach for Entry, Super and VIP Packages


I have been doing trail running the past 6 years, but I have always been a runner. At school I found a love for running through track, focusing on the 800m. Later my focus moved to Obstacle Course racing, where I enjoyed the combination of running and functional strength. I love anything outdoor, and I try bouldering and surfing as much as time allows it. Apart from running, I have a passion for my faith and helping others, which means I move a lot between South Africa and Zambia, doing a lot of my coaching online.

I studied a BSc Honours in Sport Science (Performance Sport), finding a love for endurance periodization and structuring training programs during my studies. I’ve been coaching runners for more than 4 years, forming part of the Alpasfit team for the last 2 years. I’m also a sports and recovery massage therapist, having had the privilege to work with some of the best athletes in the world the past 5 years.

Although I’ve been struggling with some injuries lately, a big goal of mine is to improve myself as an ultra-runner. My main goal for 2023 is doing the George MUT 60k and exploring some ultra-distance races in Zambia.
