Zone Fitness St Georges Mall opens in the heart of Cape Town CBD to make lunch time and after work training even more convenient.
Following on their focus to provide affordable accessible training alternatives to the high-end fitness groups it has been important to branch out of the suburbs to heart of the central business districts and opening the club on the corner of Strand and St Georges Mall can't be more central.
Launched for the first time in 2002, Zone Fitness Kloof Street offered Cape Town an alternative to the traditional exercise experience. While it incorporated state-of-the-art facilities, comprehensive aerobic instruction, studios and professional trainers, Zone also proposed a fitness lifestyle that was personal and affordable. Dedicated to approaching fitness differently, Zone Fitness was also responsible for creating the first women-only fitness clubs – spaces where women could feel comfortable and individually cared for.
By providing training opportunities in un-intimidating environments, the now thirteen clubs are focused on the individual needs of the area they’re in, and it’s this uplifting community spirit that provides the perfect environment to unlock every person’s unique potential.
April was a big month with the opening of Durbanville Zone Fitness, as well as Wynberg and Lenasia having their second and first anniversaries.
Affordability and ease of access reigns king for Zone Fitness. Zone Fitness has continued their expansion during tight economic times with their approach to a “no frills” workout - opening their door in Durbanville yesterday.
Offering affordable memberships to allow you to make responsible lifestyle choices has always been a main focus of this value brand and adding locations across Cape Town suburbs and even boasting two clubs in Gauteng their expansion in Durbanville this month and St. Georges mall next month, add to an already impressive spread of locations. Their value membership continue to provide access to all equipment as well as knowledgeable staff without costing an arm or a leg. Operating hours are based on location and cater for the majority of member needs.
With smaller more accessible clubs with no high maintenance services such as swimming pools or squash courts you can be sure to find a membership that will fit your pocket. It is not surprising to see more people turning to Zone for their workouts.

Chain of gyms expand despite recession
For those tightening their belts during an economic slump, a gym contract may be one of the first places they look to cut costs. Particularly if the monthly bill is around R 400 and, as is so often the case, you're not exactly making full use of the facility. That's one reason Zone Fitness Clubs is doing so well.

Gimketting brei uit ondanks resessie
Wanneer verbruikers tydens 'n ekonomiese afswaai probeer besuinig, is 'n gimkontrak heel moontlik boaan die lys van besnoeiings. Dit geld veral as jou kontrak jou elke maand R 400 uit die sak jaag en jy dit, soos so dikwels die geval is, nie juis ten volle benut nie. Dis een van die redes hoekom Zone Fitness so goed vaar - deur Frik Els.

We are disappointed to share with you that our tenth club, Cape Quarter in De Waterkant, will now be opening on the 1st December 2009.
Upon clearing the equipment at customs, our operations team picked up that incorrect equipment had been shipped to us by Techogym SA from Italy. They offered loan equipment as a temporary solution, but we felt that this will compromise member service. Tony Payne, sales director of Technogym SA has assured us that all measures are being taken to fulfill our mandate to you to provide access to world-class facilities from the beginning of December.
Your membership cards are available for collection at the club from Monday, 2 November. Cape Quarter members are welcome to train at any other club, free of charge, up until the 1st of December.
No membership fees are due for November with the first installement only due from the beginning of December 2009.
Our pre-club opening specials continue until the 1st of December, remaining at a discounted price of R185 per month for 2 years or R 199 per month for 12 months.
Please see Tony Payne letter below.

METRORAIL recently conducted a wellness week campaign, aimed at improving the lives of all the staff. A number of stakeholders were invited to bring their services to Metrorail staff. The stakeholders included Zone Fitness Clubs. We displayed our equipment which caught the eyes of many employees. We explained to the employees why it is important to have a balanced diet and to exercise. Almost everyone enjoyed the sessions they had on the equipment.
The bleak economic climate has brought good fortune for Zone Fitness, a gym that caters for middle to low-income earners.

Most South African gym-goers are paying for club facilities and frills they neither want nor use. But current trends in the fitness-club industry show that, when it comes to members' needs, extras are out and essentials are in. It's time to get back to basics and exercise the right to just pay for exercise.
You don't play squash or tennis. You don't use the sauna and never have time for an on-site massage. You did swim in the pool. Well, once. And sometimes, you even skip the change-room showers in favour of a long post-workout soak at home. Yes, you pound the treadmill regularly and pump weights two or three times a week. But the fact is, you’re paying for way more than a couple of pop-ins to the gym.

The rise in popularity of women's-only gyms is proving that, when it comes to exercise, sisters are doing it for themselves.
“The gym is basically a singles’ bar, but with exercise equipment.”
“I really want to lose weight, can’t face jiggling up and down on the step machine in front of a bunch of brawny guys.”
“I hate having to dress up to work out.”
“I feel a bit self-conscious when I sweat.”

The rise of no-frills gyms like Zone Fitness is changing the shape of the South African fitness club industry. How? By transforming gym membership from elitist accessory to affordable necessity
In a world of widening waistlines and climbing numbers of chronic conditions, most of us simply can’t afford not to exercise. But this essential preventative health measure has historically been out-of-reach for the very people who need it most. Why? Because far too many gyms are large and luxurious establishments – with membership fees to match.
