Physical Impact personal training centre

Starting up a business is just like those first steps/reps you make at the beginning of your exercise routine. When you start out, your joints are dry, muscles tight, blood vessels constricted and it seems as though your heart and lungs are playing to a rhythm of their own. But as you persevere the joints become oiled, muscles loosen up, blood vessels dilate and, before you know it, your lungs and heart are working together and feeding off one another. At this point the endorphins kick in and the mind becomes clear. The road ahead seems to level out beneath your feet, and each bend becomes nothing but a new horizon.
That is where we are today... Our minds are clear, we know exactly what it is we wish to offer our clientele and have the tools and energy to deliver it. We have adapted and evolved in response to the needs of our valued clients, and we did this simply by listening and not being afraid to implement change.

We opened our doors on the 1st April 2003 at the Kings Park Medical Centre. We were a team of three co-founders: Selwyn Rautenbach, Louw Burger and Chris Pillay. The location was just 98 square meters, but its four walls were the catalyst that would help us to realise a dream. The dream was to offer more, and it was all about putting in.
Through years of experience in the fitness industry, we had come to realise that the very gyms we were always so passionate about, had lost their way. As the fanatical pioneers of the fitness industry aged - and were forgotten - the corporate suites moved in and stripped the industry of its true calling... To better lives!
A loyal following of this rebirth developed and, by the end of the second year, we had expanded to 198 square meters to cater for an ever growing clientele base. In 2006 it was time to do what we love doing most. It was time for us to put back in. We searched for new premises that would enable us to offer the kind of experience we had always hoped for our clients.
106 Montpellier Road had the answers we were looking for. It was 548 square meters of pure excitement for us. We set up a temporary station at the Jewish Club on Durban beach front so as not to disrupt our client’s training programmes and, when the renovations were complete, we proudly opened our doors as the wellness centre that our clients/friends all know and love today.

Imagine yourself as a jug of water. From the moment you open your eyes in the morning you start emptying yourself out into other people’s cups. You make the kids breakfast, pack their lunch, drop them at school and then your day begins. You do what you can for your clients; do what you must for your boss... You get the picture! If you keep emptying out, very soon there will be nothing left of you. You need to find that ‘something’ that puts back in. If you pay for a gym membership, only to hurriedly work up a sweat and leave, then your gym becomes just another place where you expel that precious energy. What we strive for is to top you up and give back what has been stripped from you throughout the day. Under this roof we are a family with an ultimate goal in mind... To better ourselves!

Mind-Body-Soul
We do not function optimally on a one dimensional plane. Stimulate the mind as much as you wish, but if the body withers, so will the mind. Sculpt your body to a work of art, but starve the brain of stimulation and your outward appearance will only get you so far. Do everything by the book, but forget to live a spirited life, and you miss out the wholesome experience that is rightfully yours. Now find a way to harness your full potential - in all these spheres - and you are complete. This is called the holistic approach and it is what we offer at the Physical Impact wellness centre.

A new experience - behind open doors
It'’s this simple. Our doors are open, not only to provide you a new experience in wellbeing but also so that we can be open to any new experiences you can offer us. We thrive on welcoming new people, culture and diversity. We want this to be your home away from home. Forget the old you that couldn’'t bear the thought of going to gym after a long hard day at work, and meet the new you. The one that realises it’s not so bad, there’'s no pressure, and if you ’are feeling flat you can just show up for the conversation and a good laugh. Guaranteed, if you show up with that mind set and just get the ball rolling, you will end up having the workout of a lifetime.

We hope that you find our outlook refreshing and it encourages you to take the time to browse our site. Life is full of choices and, if you want to live a life that is full, you must make the choices that suit YOU. By adding no pressure to our clients and letting them come to us in their own time, we ensure that everyone under our roof – at any given time – is there because they want to be. This makes the world of difference to the atmosphere on the floor. It makes your experience a pleasurable one. And that is our dream realised.
We look forward to meeting you – in your own time
