"A massive thank you to Zebra Mats - South Africa- Johann and Anita worked absolutely flat out to get the gym installed to perfection. To say we are impressed would be an understatement - they’ve made dreams come true here at The Warehouse and their passion for the industry has been admirable to say the least. We have loved every single moment spent with them during this process and couldn’t be more grateful for the extreme effort they have put in to getting our gym to such an incredibly high standard. We can’t wait to open our doors! Johann and Anita, we really couldn’t thank you enough and really can’t wait to see you guys again, you’re both welcome any time.
All the best, keep doing what you do best."

Located in Linden Johannesburg, The FORT features the Zebra 50mm MMA mat. In addition, the Zebra Wall Pads protect and allow students to use the maximum mat space.

You went above and beyond Sir and I think the results speak for themselves."
