Why You Need To Join ABC After #LockdownSA

So, once the lockdown has been lifted and life returns back to normal after the COVID-19 outbreak (which might take a few months), here's why you need to join ABC and their fun boot camps for women.

You don’t need to be a pro athlete

Haven’t worked out in over a year? Just starting out on your fitness journey? It doesn’t matter! ABC welcomes and invites ladies of all fitness levels to join them for a fun yet effective workout. If anything, the more you join them for their workouts, the better you’ll get at it and the easier it’ll become.

Hang out with like-minded women

One of the great things about ABC is the fact that not only do you get to work out, but you’ll get to meet, workout and hang out with like-minded ladies, too. This also creates a lovely atmosphere, where you don’t need to worry about being watched and judged from afar. This support system allows you to just do you and be you.

Adventure Boot Camps occur all year round

A little too busy to start the next boot camp? Don’t worry, ABC hosts boot camps all year long! The boot camps are all four weeks long, five days a week. Visit their website to check out the boot camp annual calendar to see when the next one begins and to register.

Over 60 locations across the country

There is an Adventure Boot Camp around every corner! Well, not literally every corner, but with over 60 locations throughout the country, you’re sure to find one nearby. Interested to see if there is one near you? Click here to visit their website and check out their locations. In Johannesburg alone, there are about 16 locations to choose from, starting out in Kempton Park, Benoni and Alberton, all the way through to Sunninghill, Roodepoort and Randburg.

Benefits & Rewards!

Other than the fact that you’ll be earning that body you’ve always wanted and lead a more active lifestyle, you’ll also gain other benefits and rewards along the way. Discovery Vitality members can activate the Vitality benefit and log their sessions to earn up to 100 fitness points per session. ABC and Women’s Health offer you discounted rates on one-year subscriptions (11 print / digital issues), ensuring you are always on top of all things health and lifestyle! And as an ABC member, UCOOK rewards you with a 15% discount off on each UCOOK order you make. Click here to see the list of rewards and benefits.

Packages to suit your pocket

Believe it not, but ABC is much more affordable than those long-term and binding gym contracts. ABC pride themselves on offering a variety of options to suit your budget. There are three pricing options for you to choose from: Unlimited Sessions from R530* per camp; Adventure Me (11 camp debit order option) from R500* per camp; or 8 Sessions from R470* per camp. Click here to see what each offer entails. Before you commit, you can experience it for yourself with a free trial.

It’s Fun!

And last but certainly not least – it’s loads of fun! You’ll be outdoors in the fresh air, with dedicated and passionate trainers taking you and the other boot camp ladies through a feel-good workout. What more do you need to feel amazing, fitter, happier and supported?
