Mission Statement

Active Africa strives to be the best, most reliable and capable gym equipment supplier in Southern Africa. The Active Africa team is dedicated to high service levels, satisfying customer needs, competent equipment maintenance and after sales support.

Active Africa Products

Active Africa was started in 2009 with the aim of introducing and supporting Europe’s top selling range of Home Gym Equipment, BH Fitness, to South Africa. The range later broadened to include the BH Commercial Gym Equipment products.

The BH home range continually pushed the boundaries to deliver a premium range of products for the home. This is evident in the integration with both the Apple IOS and Android platforms. BH commercial gym equipment is an affordable range of premium equipment that keeps on going day in and day out.

A full range of accessories was also researched and established. The range includes, but is not limited to; handles, bars, weight plates, kettle bells, club bells, rubber loops, mats, steps, dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls, aqua bags, gym rings, gravity strap, chains, battle ropes etc. The range is continually growing as we respond to the requests from gyms and individuals.

The A6 range of strength equipment is a cost effective range of quality commercial strength gym equipment, benches and racks.

In April 2012 a high performance and medical rehabilitation division was established to supply South and Southern Africa with one of the world’s top medical brands, h/p/cosmos.

In June 2012 Active Africa approached Cormax to distribute the Cormax range of ballistic training gym equipment. Cormax gym equipment is unique in the technology used to generate the explosive movement and delivers results where more traditional training equipment can’t.

In March 2013 Active Africa was appointed as the Star Trac distributor for South Africa and Southern African countries. Star Trac has a strong focus on both the quality of the products and user experience. Star Trac has, over the past 4 years, taken a long hard look at their product range and re-engineered and improved all their products. As Star Trac manufacture their product range in their own production facility they are able to maintain strict quality control on parts used and the finished product. The consequence of the quality control and product improvements can be seen in the reduction of warranty claims and equipment down time without compromising the user experience.

Active Africa provides a full service solution for home and commercial gyms, from conceptualisation and planning through to installation after sales support.

Active Africa has offices in Pretoria and Bloemfontein and supplies gym equipment to South Africa and Sub Sahara Africa.
