Last week at Virgin Active I saw posters advertising their new Pop Fit classes, for “pre and post pop training”.
It’s not the first time for pregancy workouts in South Africa, but it’s a first for the gym group, who say that the classes are designed for moms to stay/get in shape during and after their pregnancy.
The class caters to all fitness levels and stages of pregnancy, and classes are kept at a maximum of 10 so that instructors can keep an eye out and monitor the participants
Each class is an hour, and they take place three times each week at 58 Virgin Active gyms around the country.
Sadly, classes aren’t included in gym membership, but I guess for specialised workout sessions and monitoring, it’s only fair. Prices are:
8-pack – R792 (R99 per session)
16-pack – R1425 (R89 per session which is 10% discount)
You can buy sessions on www.myvirginactive.co.za and you can book your session seven days in advance through online bookings.
