Meet the Team
Founder & Owner
Hi lovely lady!
My name is Renché! I am currently 29 years old and I am married to my all time favorite human being. I was born and
bred on a farm in the Northern Cape but have been living in Potchefstroom for the past eleven years. We currently have
two four-legged fur babies & a little human baby on the way! Eeeek! We can't wait!
I don't have an very interesting or dramatic story about why I ended up in the fitness industry. Staying active or exercising has always been apart of my life. Whether it was in the form of athletics, hockey, swimming or gym workouts. I am, and always have been, passionate about health and fitness.
I studied to become a Forensic Accountant and worked in the field for almost four years until I finally quit my job in July 2019 to peruse my passion in fitness! Most people ask me how I went from accounting to fitness. Well the answer is partially answered above - since I have always been active since I was a kid playing outside on the farm and growing up all through my school and university years.
I don't regret my choice of studies at all. I have learned valuable things through my degree which enables me to run my own business with care and knowledge I otherwise might not have had. I believe that every road that life takes you on, is the perfect road for the perfect time in your life. Each road and circumstance is there to teach us a lesson - even if we only find out years later what the lesson was.
Although, I am not currently swimming anymore - I am planning to get back into it. Back in October 2019, I have completed my very first triathlon - and although it was a small one, it was so much fun! We can only grow when we leave our comfort zones. Never be afraid to be a total beginner at something new!
Fitness can and should be fun! Anything and everything you decide to do in life should be sustainable in my opinion. As I
there is no reason in spending time on things that won't last. And if you don't enjoy what you are doing - there is no
chance that you will stick with it in the long run. So that's the reason you will often see in my posts on social media that
I use the hashtag #fitnesscanbefun. I want to remind you and every women out there that it can and should be!
I became a personal and group fitness trainer to be able to inspire and help others! I want to leave people better than I have found them - on a physical, spiritual & mental level. Working with my clients, I design programs built around each client's unique abilities and goals - with the aim of not only transforming bodies, but also enriching lifestyles.
I honestly believe that you can change your entire life - simply through your fitness journey. And that is why I want to help women from all walks of life to become the best, happiest & healthiest version of themselves - through their own individualized fitness journey!

Hi, to the strong woman that’s reading this!
Nice to meet you! I’m Lara and I am a solid 21 years old. I am currently studying Senior Education at the North-West University with Mathematics as my major subject. I come from a small town in Mpumalanga called Piet Retief and I remain a fan of small towns, so I’m so grateful for Potchefstroom and everything it has to offer!
My favourite colour is yellow, that is supposed to tell you everything! I am a photographer and love to capture life’s special moments, I believes smiles change lives and I thrive on positive energy from people in my life! Happy hormones after working out creates the same feeling!
Since I was 9 years old, I knew I wanted to become a teacher! My mom is still a teacher to this day! And when I grew up, she used to give me tests and work to help mark regularly, I loved every minute of it! I've dreamt my entire life of one day of having my own little netball team - coaching them and introducing them to fitness! I want to run with them and help them discover what they are capable of!
My passion is to teach people something that they can understand in their own way and have it made sense for themselves! I love making an effort and putting everything I have in it to make things work! WELLNESS has always been apart from my life and I’ve always liked to have a balance in my life. Not too much of anything is a good thing! Mental, physical and spiritual health is a package for wellness! I always say that small changes can lead to a big impact on one’s life! Positively or negatively, that is true! That’s why celebrating small wins are important as well as enjoying the journey every step of the way.
I've entered the FIT BEST Training’s ambassador search back in 2019 and never thought doors like these would open up the way! Yet here we are! I've attended the Female Fest and that’s where I fell in love with Renché and Nadine’s approach on fitness! Man oh man, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’ve learned so much through this journey and on this platform and from these two strong and dignified women!
I have a huge love for food and especially alternative cooking and baking! I want you to enjoy “bad food” as guilt-free and without the word “bad” stuck in your head. That is my wish for YOU! Nutrition and mindful eating don’t have to be complicated; we just have to substitute less nutritious food for MORE nutritious food!
I have the honour to share my experimentation and creations, by now being Fit Best's first ever Fit Foodie!
We might not have it together all the time, but together as a community we can have it all!

Basics of Nutrition
What a privilege to meet you! My name is Marli Visser, I’m 27 years old and I get to do life with my best friend - also known as my husband - on a farm in the Boesmanland. We have an old farmhouse with a big stoep with plenty of sunspots where I can just loose myself in the silence. My farm kitchen is my happy place! I am exactly where I need to be.
I studied BSc Consumer Science at NWU Potchefstroom. My passion is and has always been nutrition, cooking, recipe development and all things food related! After my studies I journeyed to the beautiful Cape Town for a few years where I managed restaurants and walked the streets of Stellenbosch.
2 Years ago I got married, moved to the farm and started my food blog, called Boesmanland Langtafel . Boesmanland Langtafel is where I share the stories and recipes from my mother and grandmothers kitchen. I am on a mission to encourage more women to make a return to the kitchen (not necessarily barefoot and pregnant!) but to cook nutritious, home cooked meals and to invite the family to spend quality time around the kitchen table.
In 2019 I entered Fit Best's very first ambassador search and had the honour to represent the brand for one year. When the ambassadorship ended. Renché suggested that we work together on a project. A project where we can encourage woman to ditch the diet culture – and I couldn’t be more excited!
Fast forward a year and here I am - busy creating FEAST Fridays recipes for the blog. And most importantly, developing the recipes for the FEAST Recipe Guide. With this guide we will educate and encourage women to make a return to the kitchen!
I will be focusing on beautiful home cooked meals as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle!
Remember that a healthy lifestyle is 20% exercise and 80% nutrition therefore the change first needs to happen in the kitchen.
Come and join me – I can guarantee delicious recipes and lots of fun!
Technical & Support
My name is Marizel! I am Renché's sister. Yep! So that's why I am here - forced in a friendly manner by birth
to be a part of her ventures. I am currently 32 years old, married for just over 4 years, a stay-at-home mom
to my busy 2 year old boy & soon to be mamma of another little one!
I studied BSc Geography & Environmental Sciences in Pretoria and completed my honors in Potch. After that I worked in the industry for a few years in Stellenbosch - until we re-located to a small town in the Eastern Cape. After our re-location, I found out that I was pregnant and life changed a little once my son was born. When lockdown struck, and online workouts became the new normal - I started training with Fit Best online (some say I was forced, some say I enjoyed it - I guess we'll never know).
In August 2020 we re-located back to the Western Cape & we are currently staying in Paarl.
I love being out doors, hiking, running & cycling with my husband and our son. But I'll have to admit that I actually started to enjoy the new style of "gym" training as well. So it wasn't all forced I guess.
Since lockdown, I have been working behind the scenes to help get online programs ready for you guys on the app, etc. Working on the administration side of things and assisting where I can. And of course - always representing #TeamFitBest in the Western Cape.
I am really looking forward to becoming an aunt to my sister's baby - and apparently part of my aunt-duties include managing all Fit Best related things when the new mamma is out of action. So I will be here to assist you with the new programs that are launching, all app related questions and any and all sorts of questions you might have along the way!

Our last ambassador term ended at the end of June 2021. Before the previous term ended -
I have made the decision to not run the next ambassador search at this stage.
I have made the though decision to temporarily postpone the ambassador search. As an Fit Best Brand
Ambassador, you get access to all our training programs, events, etc. Ambassadors also get a discount
code that their friend's & followers can use to get discount on anything on our website. With a little one on the way and everything going on in the world these days - I'm not sure when there will be future events that ambassadors will be able to attend. And I want to ensure that each ambassador gets the ultimate #teamfitbest ambassador experience during their term. As soon as we have more clarity about where things are headed, we will most definitely run the ambassador search again! Keep an eye on our social media to make sure you don't miss any announcements!
