Did you know that 20 percent of South African children are overweight and only 42 percent are getting enough exercise to stay healthy? These shocking statistics were found in the 2010 Healthy Active Kids Report Card which gave South African kids an overall grade of C for health.
In order to try and improve these statistics and get children to exercise, Virgin Active is offering one year’s free membership to its Club V for all kids whose parents join during April.
Members have access to the facilities as well as classes like Splash, a water-based experience with a range of aquatic equipment, adventure circuits and Sports’ Play to name a few. One of the most exciting classes exclusive to Club V is the recently launched ZumbAtomic which combines fitness and fun with specially choreographed routines to music like hip-hop and reggae.
