Liam Tamejen Gillespie

Liam is our Cape Town gym manager. He is a trained professional dancer based in Cape Town and has been dancing, performing and choreographing for 6 years. He has also been boxing since 2016.


His choreography and performance background has taken him around the world. Some notable achievements are working on choreography and performing in the hit Netflix movie The Kissing Booth and working with Tailormade group for Nedbank Cup and Disney Plus.

As someone whose entire professional career has been dedicated to staying in peak physical condition for his craft, Liam has enjoyed the transition into coaching and growing his understanding of the human body.


Liam heads up the team and the space in Cape Town, and is looking forward to seeing you in the gym. Although he is very much involved in the behind the scenes of The Fort CT, he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty and can often be found taking a client for a conditioning session or in the boxing ring holding pads.


Max du Toit

Max is one of our excellent boxing coaches (Cape Town Fort) and just an all round awesome human being.

School of Hard Knocks.

Why I got involved in the industry:
My best friend and I were trying to balance out the fact that we were in drama school and spent most of our days in tights. And then, like everyone, we got hooked (no pun intended).

Particular field of expertise:
Boxing I guess. I’d say I favour the conditioning & fitness around boxing more, purely because it’s the only kind of exercise that I ever found enjoyable. But the technical side of boxing is fast becoming an obsession the more I learn.

Max has been boxing since 2012. 

Highlights of the job :
Sounds cliché, but mostly when people tell me how much boxing has become a necessity in their week, not for the physical health, but the mental. Never gets old hearing I help make people happy.

Nickname: No-one would dare. You shall address me as Max or Coach.

Hobbies: Doom scrolling, keeping the voices at bay, Mall Santa, Being a fucking legend, surfing.
