The V&A Waterfront will continue their free Outdoor
Active fitness programme during April. The programme, in partnership with
Virgin Active, features a host of outdoor health and fitness classes and
demonstrations at some of the V&A Waterfront’s scenic outdoor venues
including the North Wharf, Croquet Lawn and Amphitheatre. The Outdoor Active
programme runs until 11 April.
All classes and demonstrations are free and those familiar
with the Virgin Active classes will be able to participate in some of their
favourite classes in an outdoor setting. For those who are not familiar with
the health club’s classes but keen to make some lifestyle changes or try
something new, this is the perfect opportunity to do so in a fun and
inspirational environment. Classes include Spinning, Yoga, Twentyfour, Colour
Me Fit, Zumba, Fierce and the adi-active 5km run.
Construction of the
The recently built boardwalk path that runs along the
breakwater side of the property has a number of lookout spots which offer great
viewing, and the boardwalk also forms part of a scenically located running
route through the property. With 2.2km and 5km sign-posted route options it is
ideal for the adi-active 5km run, where participants will experience the latest
adidas running equipment with professionals on hand for any queries.
Why not start your day doing Hatha Yoga asanas (postures)
and complex flowing sequences designed to condition your body’s major joints
and muscle groups on the beautiful Croquet Lawn overlooking the V&A
Waterfront? Or if it’s high intensity exercise you prefer, then Twentyfour
might be the class for you - it’s a high intensity interval training based
workout that is ideal for weight loss and body conditioning where 24 exercises
are done in as many minutes.
“Young, old, fit and unfit, all are welcome to participate
in Outdoor Active. One of the unique features of the V&A Waterfront is its
wide open, accessible and picturesque public spaces, and this initiative is the
perfect way for us to share what we have with our community in a new way,” said
Carla White, spokeswoman for the Waterfront.
Different classes on
Thursday, 4 April will feature the Club-V Twisty Tales class
which allows children to explore movement through stories. Twisty Tales takes
kids on an adventure by listening to stories and using their imagination to act
out animal characters while using fun props. Or discover the Virgin Active
‘Live Happily Ever Active Project’ which will be open to all at the V&A
Amphitheatre. The project aims to prove that being active can make one happier.
To sign up for classes simply register online here. Once registered,
participants will receive a confirmation email as well as a reminder email the
day before the class. All class
participants will also receive a booklet of special offers, redeemable at a
range of food and beverage and retail outlets at the V&A Waterfront.
“The V&A Waterfront’s location on the edge of town as
well as the surrounding CBD and Atlantic Seaboard areas means it is ideally placed
for Capetonians to eat, work, live and play here. As an extended neighbourhood
of the city of Cape Town it is also the perfect location for urban-living flat
dwellers to exercise outdoors in a safe and picturesque environment,” said
Whether it’s yoga, running, dance or intense workouts you
prefer, do it all outdoors at the V&A Waterfront this April with the best
professionals from Virgin Active to guide you every step of the way.
