• I have worked with several personal trainers and visited many gyms over the past few years, but I have never enjoyed training more, or achieved such great results, than I have with Bold Training.  Irene and her team manage to make each session, whether a group class or personal training, both varied and fun. I feel the effects for two days afterwards and have trained muscles I didn’t even know existed!

    The results: over the past eight months, I have lost 14kgs in weight, reduced my body fat by 12% and my waist by 15 cms. More importantly I have never been fitter or healthier and have so much more energy to enjoy life. I’m 56 yrs old and am fitter than many office colleagues 20-30 years younger than me.

    I highly recommend Bold to anyone looking to improve fitness and transform their lives

  • The best part of Bold is the way it forces you to admit that you’ve been training the wrong way. You might think you know how to do a pushup. Or a squat. Or a lunge. When Irene gets hold of you these basic exercises are turned into concentrated, functional movements where FORM is the focus. (Form and function are always the focus, by the way.) Irene has that ability to make you believe that you can do things which – honestly – you just didn’t know you could. She has taken a hobby and turned it into a sport for me, by highlighting the technical side of weightlifting. Her personality comes through in every hour I spend there and the energy is infectious. She keeps me guessing too; no workout is the same. The only constant is how I leave drenched in sweat with a weird smile on my face. Yes, my body shape has improved. But I haven’t really noticed. It’s that feeling of self-achievement that keeps me going back for more.

  • “Bold is more than just a gym for me. It is a place where I have learnt so much about myself.
    I have always been fit and active but the changes in my body and my confidence levels since joining Bold have been unbelievable.
    Bold gives me a place to sweat it out with friendly and motivating people. It is a safe environment to learn new skills from the knowledgeable and attentive coaches.
    But above all else, Bold gives me a place to have fun whilst I become a better, stronger, faster version of myself with noticeable results.”

Irène Scholz

Owner Bold, Group Class Coach
& Personal Trainer

My dream of wanting to share the feeling that sport has given me, throughout my whole life, the feeling of getting to know yourself, of being the master over your body and your mind and the feeling of being in the present, with yourself at peace – and as T.S Eliot wisely said ‘Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go’

Vicky Polydorou

Group Class Coach & Personal Trainer

I love training, wether it’s training myself or training other people to make them better. When a person is in great physical shape they feel great, and can effectively achieve the best quality out of their life. It is my passion to get them to achieving that lifestyle so that they can be the best that they can be at their life.

Sports Coach
& Sports Massage Therapist

Being able to move is one of the greatest gifts that is often neglected.  I have a passion for helping others move well and injury free.

Coming from a football background, I always appreciated what the body was capable of doing. The pre-season fitness was always something to look forward to. After sustaining many injuries I was motivated to become a sports conditioning coach in order to improve the way things were done.

Solo Training

Training at the gym by yourself can be frustrating, unsuccessful and motivation is certainly not given by swiping the card at the door.

Sometimes you need that extra push and someone who guides the way to visible results.

In a nutshell, we will tailor workouts for your needs – once your goals have been defined and timing confirmed you will get your very own weekly challenge.

Bold – Team offers you constantly varied and challenging training sessions, working out together with your team of choice – because we all know, competition gets the heart rate up.

You can be sure to be confronted with a different challenge in every session, as a team and mostly by pushing your personal limits mentally and physically.

Day, time and members will be chosen by you, place and workout by us. You might find yourself running up Lionshead, doing pull ups on signal hill, carrying rocks in camps bay or doing burpees at our gym.

once you got your team, contact us to set a date for your 1st team challenge

Group Training

It has long been proven that exercise has many health benefits and taken up regularly will help improving your overall fitness, metabolism as well as your cardio vascular system. Exercise has not only physical benefits and side effects but also proves to play a huge role in our mental well being.

We want to give you more ‘feel good’-moments – by offering group training, and all you need to bring is yourself, wrapped in steamy sports clothing and we will make sure to bring you fun, a good workout and some beats to get the ‘gees’ up.

The idea is to offer you a constantly changing, easy to follow but intensive workout that will make you go home with a smile on your face and a happy feeling in your tummy…and most likely with a little bit of muscle tenderness.
