The Gym corp

“The Gym” is your home away from home. Our facilities provide a private setting, with all the necessary expertise to accommodate anyone and everyone. We have been operating at Brooklyn Med Park for the past 15 years very successfully and relaunched our strategy to accommodate and facilitate all your fitness needs. We do recognise that personal wellness is not a “one-size-fits-all” strategy, and therefore we accommodate every individual to suit their personal goals.


We offer a wide variety of expertise under one roof and will help you find the inner best version of who you really can be!

We have various memberships available, including personal training, biokinetics and individual nutritional planning to only name a few. We have a straightforward approach that will get you where you want to be, with no unnecessary bells and hollow whistles.

Become part of our family and join “The Gym.”

As the “Mother of Bodybuilding” in South Africa I have a long interest in body work. Starting as a long distance athlete at the University of Potchefstroom, I developed an interest in resistance training, but my more formal bodybuilding career started in 1983. I was awarded numerous first places, both nationally and internationally, and I have competed as a professional athlete in both WPF and WFF/WBBF International Federations.

I have also taken up leadership positions, as a chief judge locally and internationally; and in 2010 I became the founder and National President of the World Fitness Federation (WFF).

Training and developing others is close to my heart. I have worked with elite athletes like Hestrie Cloete ( Olympic High Jump) and Richard Sterney (USA Open Golf Champion). In 2004 I became co-owner of the Fabuloss Physique private training studio where I have trained and produced two WFF professional athletes and helped bikini and male sports models to achieve camera-ready bodies. 

All of this work is backed up by an IIFT International Diploma from the University of Pretoria and a Level 2 First Aid certificate from the Services & Training Academy.

I am very results driven and develop a very close relationship with my clients to get the results they want. Your wish is my command! We work hard but we play even harder.

My motto in life: SOLI DEO GLORIA

"I have trained for over 10 years and tried every training under the sun, and have trained with Manie Jr for about a year and a half now and won't be leaving, I can honestly say no one I've met have the knowledge and heart Manie possesses and I've never had a more hands on experience with a coach or mentor at a competition . Not only helping me reaching my fitness goals Manie has helped me win a battle with depression and suicide which lasted through most of my life and also helped me find my way in life when I was lost. Loyalty, Respect, Love, Understanding, humility, honesty is the key elements Die Baardwolf training ethos system is based off, train and work hard and Manie will work even harder keeping you on track in life and in fitness." - Evan Fourie
