If you’re looking for an intense group workout, with great instructors and all with a cool vibe, then you need to get down to Hout Bay and give one of the classes at Thrive fitness a try! I recently tried the ‘turf’ class with a couple of friends, and it was nothing short of intense, and fun. Our incredible instructor, Brad Tooley guided us and kept track of everything through the whole workout. His motivating aura was such a pleasure to be around while we sweated it out :p
The turf class is an outdoor high intensity class, where there are a number of exercises that are done one after the other, with some rest in between each. The catch is, that with each round, the number of exercises increases by one where no rest is taken between the exercises. So on the final round you are basically doing all the exercises one after the other with no rest.
It is very easy to book, all you have to do is create an account on their website, choose your class and show up. A bit more info about them is below:
4 STATIONS, 4 ZONES, MAX 16 PEOPLE, 1 INSTRUCTOR.
THRIVE Fitness SA is a Four Zone Four Station gym with the beneﬁts of a personal training session set in a group environment. What differentiates it is the concept, which consists of four indoor zones each with four exercises that target your upper and lower body, core and cardio.

It is designed to help people switch off from day-to-day life by dedicating just 45-minutes of their busy schedule to themselves, in a welcoming and judgement-free environment. It’s the perfect add on to your existing training routines and sport.
The classes are themed and each day of the week has a speciﬁc programme that brings with it a timed music set for that session. The music has been carefully selected and mixed by DJ Jon White and compliments the dramatic lighting which helps with cardio, timing and keeps you amped during training. There are also TV screens in each zone demonstrating the process and correct form.
But the real draw card is the expert trainers who are there to assist and stimulate you along the way, with the ability to tailor the moves according to your strengths and goals. Giving Thrive more of the feel of a group personal training session than the average gym class.
There is an outdoor section called “The Turf” which is in the back yard and is specialised for those who prefer to push themselves even harder.
Situated in Victoria Road, Hout Bay, there is no contract, no fees or membership allowing you to train in a way that ﬁts your lifestyle and work with your other ﬁtness interests.
