Too fit to quit

The Winter break was anything but restful for staff of the CPUT Fitness Club based at the Bellville campus.

The first phase of the CPUT Lifestyle and Wellness programme was launched in July and aims to get as many staff members as possible to embrace fitness.

Classes are hosted by Joy of Movement Fitness Solutions who have decades of experience working in commercial gyms and running their own fitness studio in Bellville.

The launch was kicked off with a fitness assessment which was attended by a record number of eager staff members. The assessment included a weight, height, stretch and girth measurement then concluded with a running, squat, push-up and sit-up evaluation.

This information was used to evaluate the general group fitness and will also track the progress of individual members as they work towards their year-end fitness goals.

Staff physical wellness will eventually be rolled out campus wide but a lack of facilities has stalled this progress.

Head trainer Lee Van Der Bergh says CPUT staff members have a golden opportunity to harness their own fitness goals within the comfort of their own work environment.

“We have all the facilities right here and Joy of Movement is about turning back the years and reminding you how good it felt to move and be fit,” he says.

Sessions change regularly but include bootcamp on Mondays, fighting fitness and self-defence on Tuesdays and cardio and toning on Thursday.
