The man behind Joie de Vivre
Joie de vivre Fitness and Training is the brainchild of Antonio Fongang, owner and operator. Antonio is a Personal Trainer Specialist, former professional soccer player as well as a soccer coach internationally.
Antonio is certified through Can-Fit-Pro, studied Pharmacy with a focus on body perception. As a professional soccer player, he played in several countries such as France, Switzerland, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. As a trainer, he trained high profile professional soccer players and teams throughout the world.
Time and time again, I am reminded of the positive effects exercise has on my own physical and psychological well-being, and my appreciation for what our bodies and minds can achieve is ever increasing.
As a coach, I want to inspire, motivate and support the will inside every client to achieve a permanent lifestyle through exercise, healthy nutrition, and to consistently exceed their own expectations about what they can achieve.
As a coach, I strongly believe that every individual is capable of attaining their optimum physical condition, if made aware of their potential and how to achieve it. Throughout my career, I have encountered people of all age and conditions who have accomplished things they never thought possible. Yes, we don’t all have the genetics of a super model or elite athlete, but everyone can improve on what they have and reach their full potential.
I also think of every client as an extension of myself, and hold both myself and my clients accountable for the success of our training relationship. For that reason, I prefer to work with people who are as committed as I am.
My philosophy focuses on continual lifelong learning as I work towards enhancing the well-being of my clients by empowering them with the knowledge, skill, support, guidance and resources to assist and inspire them on their journeys to a healthier life
Antonio holds a CAN FIT PRO Personal Training Specialist Certification, carries current CPR and First Aid Training level HCP (Health Care Professional) as well as a Professional Liability Insurance.
