Whilst the Gym is undergoing renovation and kitting out,  there are some exciting group and individual training opportunities already available for all our members and their family and friends, so have a look at the attached
brochure and the below information in this regard.

Ultimate Athlete (UA) is thrilled to announce the opening of its 4th facility in Jo’burg at the Pirates Sports Club in Greenside on Tuesday 18 February at 18:00.

Ok so what is UA?

UA instructors provide group training that focuses on functional or compound exercises aimed at making you fitter, faster, stronger and more toned.  We follow a block training schedule to limit the chance of injury and burn out. The focus is on exercise form to achieve speed, agility and power.  You get faster, stronger and more agile by training with good form and in appropriate blocks to avoid injuries and burn out.

If you are looking for a fun way to ‘shape up and get fitter, faster and stronger’ in a friendly environment, come and give UA a try.

When?

Additional classes will be added as required
