''I have two Diplomas that I obtained in 2 years. One in Personal Training and one in Sports Conditioning Science, both working with beginner to advanced individuals. Recently, I also obtained a certificate in sports massage.
I competed twice in Bodybuilding competitions of which I placed 1st in my 1st competition and 3rd in the other.
Thereafter I served 1 year in the military where I was awarded the fittest soldier.
Upon my return, I jumped on the obstacle-course-race bandwagon, where I ended up placing 2nd in my age group in South Africa.
I always had a passion for CrossFit but never really had the time to try it out. When I started training at CrossFit Uhuru in September 2020, well, it was love at 1st WOD! 😆
With my extensive understanding of biomechanics, recovery, and injury prevention I feel joining this amazing CrossFit Uhuru team, we could help all members better their performance and reach their fitness goals.''
He has always been passionate about sport. Not specifically in any single discipline; sport in the broad spectrum.
Pieter played most school sports and he also has a background in gymnastics where he learned bar movements, handstands, and flips.
He is passionate about running, lifting weights, and being able to move his body as a result of a healthy lifestyle.
He says that CrossFit is the perfect combination of multiple movements and functionality to keep him motivated and encouraged to keep improving himself constantly.
He is also a full-time Youth Pastor. This is where his passion for people developed exponentially over the last couple of years. Youth Ministry taught him that no matter where you are in your life, including your physical abilities, there is always hope that you will improve when you put the time and work into it.
He believes this to be true for all athletes with various backgrounds and different skills. No one is unable to improve in their fitness, mindset and overall health.
