My friends all started joining Virgin Active and began raving about the perks of the club and all the fun classes they’ve attended together. I realised the motivation of going to a gym would be greater if I had close friends to work out together. So I booked a tour to check out the club. I fell in love with it immediately and decided to sign up on the spot!
I was first blown away by the Relax and Recovery zone which is unique to Virgin Active. I sometimes forget to ‘breathe’ and a 15 minutes rest in the Himalayan Salt room after a workout is always so rejuvenating. I’ve noticed that it helps me kick back into action at work and I’m able to focus better.
I had an old injury on my left knee which I needed to fix before a scheduled ski trip and decided to take up Personal Training with Alberto to focus on strengthening and improving the condition of my knee. I also didn’t want to suffer the consequences of an injury when I get older.
I can now participate in intensive sports like snowboard and wakeboarding and I’ve recently managed to complete mountain trekking in Cape Town and a marathon earlier this March!
Exercising, to me, is a way of life. It’s almost like the air we breathe, the food and water we consume, and the rest we need. I feel strange when I don’t exercise at least twice in a week.
