NCC was started by Marion and Mary in 2012 out of a connection between 2 people who had a vision for sharing their love of people and helping others succeed. Back in 2012 when Mary joined the gym, Mary was training at the time to improve her first love, Karate and martial arts. Marion very quickly took to mentoring and supporting Mary into becoming one of South Africa’s top female Athletes. It was very shortly after this that Mary and Leon crossed paths. Both Mary and Leon managed to make the team selected to compete against South Africa’s finest. The 2 shared a similar work ethic and a partnership was formed. They were paired together in the winning workout that took the team to a once in a lifetime experience at the CrossFit games 2013. Still not knowing much about each other or the sport they sat side by side for 20 odd hours where a friendship was formed on the way to the US of A and took on the reebok CrossFit Games. They were paired together in numerous workouts showing the world what a team was meant to be.
Leon being the passionate personal trainer that he is realised he could make an even bigger difference and joined forces with Mary and Marion, creating Northcliff CrossFit. Forging the strongest knowledge based systems, programs and team that South Africa has seen. The 2 like-minded athletes have since spent years refining the programs, systems, and gaining knowledge and experience from the world’s leading coaches, athletes and gyms to further their ability to not only be the best coaches but develop the best coaches in the business … bringing you Johannesburg’s premier CrossFit, and fitness facility, Northcliff CrossFit.
