Reps were founded by former SA MMA number 1 ranked heavyweight champion and 1st-degree black belt Brazilian JIU Jitsu practitioner, Rico Hattingh and Cape Town franchise businessman, Eric Sean Pike, along with other athletes and shareholders.
The four were deciding on a name for their company and Rico initially thought of Reps (short for repetition). Whilst sharing this thought with the other shareholders, he realized that they were sitting at the table in the following order: Rico, Eric, Peter, and Sharon. The first letter of every name spelled out REPS.
Reps aimed to offer everything under one roof. Now you don't have to belong to different gyms to achieve your goals and enjoy what you love. Our variety and options will never leave you bored again and stuck in your contract. We want to let the normal person out there experience specialized skills training in a professional environment that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Today we offer the two fastest-growing sports in the world which are MMA and Crossfit. We also offer the traditional gym experience which is catered to the majority of the public.
Once you enter Reps’ unique world-class facility, you will find the best and most friendly trainers standing ready to help you achieve your goals whether fitness, healthier you or becoming a world-class athlete, we’ve got it all covered under one roof. The facility is split into two sections and fully equipped with state of the art equipment to give you the best results possible. Section one is where we do the CrossFit training: CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.
All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in health and fitness. While CrossFit challenges the world’s fittest, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience.
We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. There is also a section for the person looking for the traditional gym experience. The second section consists of 120 m2 Zebra martial mats where we offer all our martial arts related activities like Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay-thai, boxFit, Kids Anti Bully and Self-defense classes, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts training with world-class trainers and athletes. We pride ourselves on our modern and clean change rooms with lockers and shower facilities.
