V.I FITNESS IS A HOLISTIC FITNESS COMPANY FOUNDED BY COUSINS COLO TLHONG & LEBOGANG MOIPOAI, AS TEENS THEY BOTH HAD A STRONG DRIVE TO STAY ACTIVE CHALLENGE THEIR PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS ALBEIT IN VERY DIFFERENT WAYS.
Lebogang was a multi-sport athlete who would try any and every sport; basketball, football, rugby , tennis you name it he was doing it. He is a natural athlete but more importantly he was a hard worker who strived to learn and improve. Colo Tlhong on the other hand focused his attention on a more non-conventional sport, competitive powerlifting. Competing as part of the North Gauteng Powerlifting team Colo competed in numerous strength competitions and even made it to South African powerlifting champs twice getting a bronze medal in his division on one occasion.The complete opposite of Lebo when it came to natural athleticism but similar drive and passion to excel.
It was this similar drive and passion that brought V.I Fitness together, the V.I in V.I Fitness means “ Versus I”, to develop ourselves and become the best versions of ourselves we have to be brave enough to challenge ourselves. It is this belief that drives us as a company and pushes us to innovate beyond your conventional fitness company. Along with being certified trainers Colo holds a degree in Bcom Politics, Philosophy and Economics from the University of Witwatersrand and Lebogang has experience as a junior architect, these skills at first glance may seem like the furthest thing from fitness however they play a vital role in our business offerings and how we understand health and wellness.
