Who am I?

My name is Farkas Pungur and I am the founder of FitTroop. I might be an awarded sportsman, but my job is to help you to learn a new lifestyle in which you can live happily and healthily and that is what I do best.

I’m originally from Hungary and moved to Australian with my wife in 2004 as expert gymnastics coaches. We have four young kids, all born in Australia.

I grew up in Hungary under the regime of the Soviet Union which actually had many positive sides; one of which was a great sporting life supported by the government.

I started with gymnastics at age 4 and was selected from 30 kids during a full year selection process. Was I lucky? No, I was talented for the sport. At age 9-11 we won the National titles many times in the group event. We trained over 20 hours each week.

If you are interested to find out more about my gymnastics life, try to get the movie “White Palms”.

I have competed in and won many titles in gymnastics, short distance athletics, break dancing, european handball and swimming.
