One of the things I like about Capetonians is that they are quite active and enjoy the outdoors, whether that be spending a day at the beach, trail running, hiking, mountain biking, etc. However, Winter does reduce the options quite considerably and we sometimes find that come the end of winter we’re not quite in beach shape yet so there is a sudden increase in gym attendance and the prom is jammed with runners, walkers, rollerbladers, etc. I’ve personally started training at One80 to try and get in shape for summer.
Now that Spring has arrived, it’s a good time for a expo about health and fitness. The Look & Feel Good expo is just that. The expo debuts in the Mother City from 10 to 12 September 2010 at the CTICC. Whether you’re a gym junkie, a fitness fundi, a health nut or just plain looking to boost your overall physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing, there’s a range of attractions to get you motivated again:
Mr & Ms Fitness SA Zone: Check out the country’s most buffed and toned bods, taking part in fitness, dance, aerobatic and gymnastics displays. If you feel the rhythm in your feet, try out the beginners’ dance workshops – this super-fun activity may even spur you to get involved in the fitness industry.
Yoga Studio: Sample the different styles of yoga – perfect for achieving harmony of mind and body. Experienced instructors in everything from Bikram and Kundalini to Yoga 4 Kids and Preggie Yoga will show you why this activity is ideal for improving your posture and flexibility, as well as helping you to relax and feel fitter, happier, more energetic and at peace.
