Mark Conrad started working as cleaner at Entheos Boxing Academy in the small town of Swellendam. After observing the sport, owner Dries Morris gave him an opportunity to become a trainer. While working as a trainer, he assisted by putting together new fitness programmes. When they opened their doors to taking in non-paying students, he would take in all the kids not doing sport at school and teach them about boxing. There are currently 45 boxers from age 12 to 35 who are attending free classes. The academy isn’t only focused on boxing but they help with homework and teach basic computer skills and first aid. Entheos Boxing has become their second home.
