The origins of HIIT and Health

Oh, the adventures that HIIT has taken me on…

From running the Otter trail in a day (usually a 5 day hike), finishing marathons and the many ups and downs of trying to beat my previous personal best’s (PB’s), I am forever grateful to HIIT and its amazing community.

Some of my credentials

In addition to my love for fitness, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce, an MBA, and a certificate in Nutrition Science from the Stanford Center for Health Education (SCHE), a division of Stanford Medicine.

Combining this academic background and personal experience, I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge and passion for HIIT with others, inspiring you to unlock your full potential and transform your life.

I had a goal, and it was The Otter trail run

The Otter Trail has a TrailFactor of 2.0, indicating it may take twice as long as a flat road course. Participants must cross four rivers, including the challenging Bloukrans River. The route has a total elevation gain of 8,530ft/2,600m, around 7,000 ascending steps, and eleven significant climbs, with three exceeding 328ft/100 meters.
