Muay Thai fighter challenged by Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race

Seen here:  Ashley Robinson, Muay Thai fighter turned IMPI Elite Race competitor.

Taking place at the picturesque Wiesenhof Wildlife Park (Stellenbosch) on Saturday, 17 November 2018, the Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race #4 has piqued the interest of accomplished Muay Thai fighter, kickboxer, stuntman and personal trainer, Ashley Robinson.

“I enjoy challenging myself.  The Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race is another way to test my abilities as an athlete,” confesses Robinson.  “Competing against SA’s top obstacle course racers is amazing.  I really enjoy exchanging tips after the event.  The Wiesenhof Wildlife Park is a spectacular venue.  It’s scenic, while the obstacles are challenging.  You get to enjoy the fresh air while racing and facing tough obstacles.  Due to my shoulder injury, I tend to struggle with the ‘grip’ obstacles the most.”

“The Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race #1 held earlier this year taught me to run more often and keep my endurance on a peak level,” continues Robinson.  “Since then I’ve added more hill training to my training schedule as well as more fight training.  I’ve also invited a few of my friends and clients to join in on the fun.  I’ve programmed their training schedules with more movement training.  My goal on the day will be to keep up with the fast runners.”

Robinson secured the second spot on the podium at the Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race #4 in 2017 behind Anele Bans.
