Akil F. Abdul-Rahman
I am from the US and have resided in Cape Town the last 19 years. Of that time I have worked with first, Health and Racquet, then Virgin Active for 14 going on 15 years as a Certified Personal Trainer. Along with working inside Virgin Active I have also been for the last 3 years the exercise facilitator for STROHAB, a Stroke support club that is connected with the Cape Flats Developmental Association (CAFDA). I also do private training with seniors in there home. My resume is long so I will attempt to make it as short as possible. AKIL F.
