The A-Team Fitness Lifestyle (known as the A Team) is a Not for Profit Organization founded by team coach John Claude Maphosa in 2010 in the quiet location of Cosmo City. The A Team’s initial purpose is to develop individuals who want to follow an amateur or professional career in sports like bodybuilding and fitness, boxing, aerobics, athletics, volleyball and soccer.

We give motivational talks in townships, such as in Alexandra geared to inspire the youth to stay focused and not give up on their goals regardless of what those goals may be.


The A Team is happy to promote and assist all athletes from all walks of life and Coach Claude is often called to provide his insight and expertise in various sport initiatives and competitions.


Our development initiatives now include Arts & Culture, student after-care and health and fitness for the elderly and people with special needs.
