About Neil Du Plessis
I’ve always been fascinated with how the body can adapt and progress. When I realized my passion for helping people I asked myself, how could I turn my passion into my job?
A powerful transformation is one that can be seen and felt. When I started my journey into the health and fitness space I was able to get great results on myself.
HFPA first offered the platform I needed to offer this effectively and safely with others. Now I get to work in the business and teach new potential life changers the methods and share my passion for transforming and helping others! I’m looking forward to you studying at HFPA Cape Town.
