About Us

Our Journey Is Yours

Mike Perkins


I left the corporate world in 2010 to follow my passion in the health and wellness industry and started a small 1-on-1 personal training business. This quickly grew into what is now the Ministry of Fitness that has worked with the likes of Tourvest Travel Services, Hewlett Packard, Aspen Pharmacare, Insight Consulting and LC Packaging.

My next vision was to work with more people and this led to the creation of the ‘Mike and Mandy Lifestyle Transformation Program’ where I could work with people anywhere in the world, showing that through our #20minute workouts and #20minute meals they could lead a healthier and happier lifestyle. The ‘Mike and Mandy’ brand launched our first 12 week FitME Lifestyle Transformation Program that can be done by anyone, anywhere in the world.

My next goal is to get into schools and corporates where we can show the importance of investing into your staff, and educating kids at a young age as to the importance of being active and knowing what type of food to eat.

I am not into ‘Diets’ or 2 hour gym sessions – its all about moving your body each day and eating good unprocessed food. Contact me on +27 76 329 9220.

Mandy Perkins

I have been working in the health and wellness industry for 17 years, I started as a group training instructor and then progressed to working full time for a large fitness chain in South Africa for over 5 years. In 2006 I decided to leave full time employment and I started my own business so that I could have the time to pursue my dream of doing my Honours in Psychology.

Over the years I have completed many courses and diplomas in the complementary health industry, not only to grow myself professionally, but also as part of my own personal growth. My biggest passion in life, besides animals, is people.

I am passionate about what I do and I love nothing more than to mentor and help people through life’s journey!

‘Even though I have not been in the industry for as long as Mike and Mandy, I find myself passionate about the way we live and how we view food and exercise. There are so many misconceptions about food and lifestyle that it’s often hard to know what to do. I believe every ‘body’ is different and something that works for someone else, may not work for you. I use a medical approach to help refine your eating patterns- patterns that will suit your lifestyle, budget and food views. I am also able to help with clinical nutrition problems like food intolerances and allergies, medical conditions and chronic diseases of lifestyle.’
