Sam Smuts: co-founder Fit50


I am a fitness coach, yoga teacher, life coach and Mom of three. I specialise in facilitating and helping others to transform themselves specifically in the field of health, wellness, fitness and nutrition. My approach is to build connection in individuals so that they are more equipped and able to grow, transform and find meaning in their lives. My own purpose is to serve, heal and empower others. I have 26 years of teaching experience in movement disciplines including ballet, Pilates, personal training, Vinyasa and Power Yoga. I believe that all forms of movement help us to connect with ourselves and are key to transformation thereby leading us to live more fulfilling and extraordinary lives.
