Checkers launched their meal kits not too long ago. These boxes include a recipe and all the main ingredients needed to make a delicious meal. Pantry ingredients like salt, pepper, water and oil, among others, will be needed for most of the meals. Each week there are several options to choose from including a meat, chicken, fish and vegetarian option. These kits range in price and cooking times. The wide variety of meals makes meal prep and healthy eating much easier.

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.
