Roland Safar (Franchise Owner & Manager)
My SpeedFit journey started back in 2012. Matej, my friend from Slovakia (and now CEO of SpeedFit) told me about the popularity of SpeedFit in Europe, and I was intrigued. He talked me into a three-month trial, and I was so impressed with the effect it had on my body, I partnered up with Matej – and together we launched SpeedFit in Australia!
I love everything about SpeedFit: the convenience, the effectiveness, the versatility, the fact you can get so much done without it taking over your life. Everyone can benefit.
These days, I own the SpeedFit franchise in Crows Nest, Sydney and work actively in the studio. I’m a people person, so I like working closely with and motivating our clients. Seeing people hit their targets and achieve a positive change in their life is hugely rewarding and makes the hard work worthwhile.
Other than spending time with my family (my three girls: 34 y/o, 7 y/o & 2 y/o), I also love listening to podcasts and audiobooks on nutrition, biomechanics and general sciences. I’m all about using my time efficiently – not only for training (hence the EMS is my preferred fitness program) but also with self-learning.
Playing sports has been in my blood since I started walking. It’s always been my channel to obtain positive energy, especially through sprinting and playing sports such as handball and rugby.
I started personal training in Malaysia after getting my Certificate in Fat Loss Bootcamp program by Australian Strength Performance. I started personal training/coaching, then built my profile up in the Malaysian fitness industry, managed a Hybrid gym, ran classes, and was an ambassador with Adidas Malaysia. The little details of the human biomechanics and nutrition intrigued me to further my knowledge in Australia, where I pursued Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness.
When I found out about SpeedFit, I was interested to learn more about EMS to broaden my personal training and use it as a tool to complement other training methods.
I’ve always loved engaging with people and helping them best understand their bodies. Most importantly, I like helping people to avoid the mistakes I made before learning fitness, such as fad diets and obsessively tracking the numbers on the scale. Experiencing that moment at SpeedFit when clients have reached beyond their goals and have changed their lives is golden to me.
Apart from fitness & health, I love fashion, beauty & photography!
