Hi my name is Helen Mentzel….

My passion throughout my life has been my interest in fitness and health. I always was very active at school and it was natural to pursue a career in the fitness industry.

I studied overseas for 6 years and came back in 1994 to fulfil my dream. In 1995 I opened my first club… Profiles William Moffett is now the largest private Health Club in the Eastern Cape. Helping others, and seeing people transform and grow confidence as a result, is so rewarding!.

• “Our mission is to be the most successful privately owned family health club in the Eastern Cape and have a positive impact on our members lives by creating a memorable fitness experience.”

Profiles lives by its motto ….. ‘ Personal, Private, Professional’

Personal: Owner run, family orientated, comfortable, friendly environment and something for the whole family.

Private: Profiles Health Club is the largest, privately owned club of its kind in the Eastern Cape.

Professional: I studied and worked in the UK for 6 years, earning a Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology.

I worked for numerous health clubs from 1989 to 1994, attending workshops and conventions in all aspects of the fitness industry, including working for Reebok UK as a fitness instructor/lecturer. Moving back to South Africa, I became the Master Trainer for Reebok in the Eastern Cape and
lectured for HFPA. (Health and Fitness Professionals Association)

• Profiles Fitness Studio as it was then called was established in 1995. Money saved by working in the UK was used to plan, build and advertise the gym before opening in June of that year. The main target market at that time was female clientele who wanted to ‘get fit and feel good’ but were intimidated by the huge corporate clubs. The different classes offered throughout the week proved to be very popular, the demand grew and the need for more space arose. In 1999 Profiles re-located to the current premises on the William Moffett, a much better location and with more room to grow.
