Rise of the Machines - How And Where We Work Out
18 December 2015
There has never been a time when exercise and peak physical form has been as revered as it is in this, the new millenium. Not content to ease slowly into middle age spread and a myriad of physical complaints we push ourselves to be perfectly functioning machines.
Not a purely asthetic preoccupation, exercise is proven to increase brain function, keep you young, decrease your chances of developing dread diseases and of course keep you at Alpha for longer than the geezer on the couch. Not to be left behind, Cape Town offers an amazing diversity of activities to keep you in peak physical condition in a variety of awesome settings.
they can be once off whIch makes them very convenient for globe trotting rock stars like yourselves.
Consider sunrise or sunset yoga on Clifton,Camps Bay or Sunset beach. Nothing will bring you inner peace and allow you to ignore the discomfort of that intense stretch better than a beach sunset or sunrise in paradise. check out http://skippettystreet.blogspot.co.za/2008/11/every-sunday-morning-in-summer-shanti.html
Crossfit is a world wide phenomenon - tipped as “the leading force in the world today in the war on chronic disease," we think perhaps the founder may have overstated slightly? But still it can’t be denied that here, as all around the world, Crossfit’s high intensity and varied functional movement workouts are making a lot of people buff and creating communities of superhumans. check it out on line for a list of CT Based Crossfit “boxes”.
For the truly hardcore there is Krav Maga a hand to hand combat fighting style developed in Israel by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli defense force and then later adapted by him for civilians. There is Nothing quite so sexy as being deadly. Ask James Bond. You can find training at http://www.truekravmagacapetown.co.za/inthestudio.html be warned though there is no fannying about here. These blokes are serious.! “Training is painful, training is exhausting, there are no short cuts and physical and psychological breakdowns do occur. All this is not to break you but to build you.”
If that sounds a little daunting (hello!!!) perhaps Pilates is more your speed – a truly extraordinary workout that wont leave you bloodied, bluised or broken. Or there is adult ballet in the heart of the city, pole dancing classes that have nothing to do with you wanting to launch a career as an exotic dancer, there is Promenade Mondays where you can skate, rollerblade, rollerskate, BMX on the Sea Point promenade as the sun sets or watch a younger generation do it. It's quite extraordinary to watch and well worth it. You can also hire Bicycles and cycle along the strip from moulle point to sea point, do Boot camp on Sea Point promenade. You can even SUP (Stand up paddle) on the waterways that run from the CT international convention centre to the Waterfront.
Cape Town in summer lends itself to every form of exercise and the cult of healthy living and peak physical form is gaining devotees every day. We hope we’ve inspired you to work hard, play hard and have fun doing it.
