More about Frans Laatz

Francois has always had a love for sport and recreational fitness. Playing 1st team rugby in high school landed him a scholarship in 2008 at Zululand Rugby Academy in Empangeni, KZN. During his rugby years he made the Sharks Under 21 training squad, played in the Murry Cup Final and played some friendlies for The Kings against Cheetahs & The Lions. His continued growth in his abilities allowed him to play for Border Bulldogs in East London for two years. 


It was during his rugby season that he got exposed to high intensity interval training workouts & strived to achieve the best performance physically by spending hours in a local gym or on the beach with a group of fitness experts. This however left him wanting more and so he did a Crossfit Level 1 Training Course in 2015. This experience helped Francois gain more knowledge and understand the potential an individual's body has. 


It was for this reason he decided to open Elite Fitness in Empangeni, to help people reach their maximum potential in fitness. This is Francois's passion and he loves the fact that he can pass this passion on to others.
