ActVyt Lifestyle was founded in 2015 by Phaphama “Coach” Bixa, who is a fitness trainer, running coach, trail runner (“mountain-goat”), adventurer and weight-loss coach. In his quest to find something fun, creative and social to get his clients into fat loss, he opted for hiking. The number of hikers extended from his clients to other interested outsiders through Facebook events. From 2016; the number of hikers doubled by 2018.
Ever since then; hikes are organized throughout South Africa in different offerings from a moderate trail walk to a challenging overnight hike. In the process Actvyt has employed 3 permanent employees and 10 ad-hoc event assistants. The hikes are driven from a wellness and fitness stance.
Actvyt continues to grow every day taking adding new trails, new hikers, and new experiences with hikers making new friends and creating lasting connections. The brand will continue to its commitment of relentless pursuit of better health by enabling South African to get out there and enjoy the natural wonders.
Actvyt is a non-sponsored, non-funded company relying solely on hikes entry fees from hikers to run successful events.
