Meet Our Ambassadors
HFPA is fortunate enough to have a fantastic group of young achievers representing us. All of our ambassadors have carved a successful path for themselves, in the fitness and sports industries and we are extremely proud to align ourselves with each one of them.
Zaakirah Khalek - Fitness coach
A few years ago I made the brave decision to change careers from being an HR Business Partner to become a Fitness Coach. The thought of changing careers was daunting but I knew that, if I signed up with the correct institution to advance my knowledge in health and fitness, I would be more confident in my chosen field.
HFPA gave me the confidence to become the best Personal Trainer I can be. The course was interactive, my lecturer was very engaging and the course material is carefully curated to help you understand the biomechanics of the body.
Everyone at HFPA made me feel comfortable. HFPA is an overall great institution to start your fitness career with! I look forward to advancing my knowledge with them in the near future.
I truly believe that being able to reach people and help them improve their life is one of the best aspects of being a fitness professional. However to make the biggest impact you have to live what you preach. You cannot teach others something you have never experienced yourself. The Health and Fitness industry is changing all the time, therefore, it is very important to stay educated and informed in the current trends.
HFPA is a leader in the Health and Fitness industry. The courses they offer are so broad that it will suit any fitness professional and extend their knowledge and expertise. Being able to be part of the HFPA family and represent the brand and industry is a huge achievement for me. I feel very privileged to be able to educate myself further and broaden my horizons not just for myself but for people I work with on a daily basis
Justin Rossouw - WBFF Pro Muscle Model
The reason I felt very comfortable choosing HFPA is because of the recognition that they have worldwide, and the fact that their courses are designed by experts in their fields.
Working with an highly accredited organisation like HFPA will be really beneficial to me as I grow my knowledge and fitness career.
I would like to thank HFPA for the opportunity and I’m honoured and proud to be part of the HFPA family.

HFPA is unique not only regarding the international standards of the educational experience, especially when it is reflected through their nationwide, state of the art, campuses, but as an educator myself, the support staff, trainers, lecturers and senior staff are Family.
As a business woman I understand that my net worth is my network and through HFPA I have engaged and connected with the top innovators of the Fitness industry world wide.
Julian lee Ramdhari - IFBB Professional
I have been competing since the age of 18 years old and it was always a goal of mine to turn professional. This goal of mine was reached in London in March 2019 and I could not be happier to see my hard work pay off. If there is anything I have learnt in life, it is that hard work, perseverance and education always pay off. Which is why I have chosen to study at HFPA, where there is no limit to education.
Alyssa Conley - Olympian Sprinter
Education gives us knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. Education is the fuel to mind power therefore I am honoured to be a part of the HFPA family where education gives me power.
Mandla Amos Nlekho - Trainer & Coach
Studying at HFPA has given me the opportunity to grow my knowledge and help me improve my skills in the fitness industry. It has also benefited me to become one of the respected and trusted personal trainers and sports conditioning coaches in the industry. The support that HFPA offers to their students is phenomenal and you get special attention if you are struggling to understand your studies. HFPA has even supported my business in terms of showcasing my knowledge on a few TV shows regarding health, fitness and wellness. I would definitely recommend HFPA to anyone who wants to excel in the fitness industry!
Lisa Raleigh - Wellness & Fitness Expert
I have studied with HFPA before and enjoyed the flexibility it allowed me, so when I felt ready for a new challenge and saw a gap in what I could potentially be offering my clients, I was pleased that HFPA were offering a way for me to become a certified life coach.
After all, it’s essential to not only be able to guide people in they weight loss journey with practical diet and exercise, but to understand the reasons behind why my clients need my help in the first place.
I would highly recommend HFPA to anyone wanting to enhance their existing business and guide others and themselves by understanding the “why?” behind our decisions and behaviours.
Neil du Plessis - Olympic weightlifter
I received my Diploma in Exercise Science from HFPA in 2011. During my entire studying process I had access to personal attention whenever I needed to query something or if I just needed assistance. Since then I have stayed in contact with HFPA and they have gone from strength to strength.
They are proactive in keeping me up to date with current job offers and I always get a sense of what is currently happening in the academy. I find their distance learning and short courses very exciting because they are staying relevant to the needs of future students.
Their online platform is very informative, easy to use and their in-house facilities are filled with the most up to date and high tech equipment.
