An Adventure Boot Camp Like No Other

Greetings Dear Readers.

Last week @UmhlangaLife was invited to attend An Adventure Boot Camp which is held at the
wonderful Chris Saunders Park near Gateway.  What a wonderful setting.
We met the wonderful owner of the Umhlanga Franchise Tshepi.  What a positive role model for entrepreneurs.

                     Tshepi Tshabalala - Adventure Boot Camp For Women

Make no mistake about it.  You really get a workout at this Camp.  Located in the beautiful
Chris Saunders Park, a wonderful setting to get some good exercise.

                                                Working out at Chris Saunders Park

I attended the 8am class and they really are a friendly group.  Some people have done over
30 Camps.  You really get a good workout.  The Chris Saunders Park is such
a refreshing place to work out.

Tshepi has a passion for fitness so when the opportunity came she grabbed it and
opened a branch.

The workout consists of Skipping, Jogging around the park, stretching and twisting your body
in many different positions.  You also jog up stairs as well.  Tshepi also puts you through
Crunches in various positions.  If you want to get fit and have fun this is the place to be.

                                           Working out in a wonderful environment

Tshepi certainly puts you through your paces and you will find yourself doing lots of skipping.
The workout is for 1 hour and they have various classes.  So book the class that works
best for your time schedule.
The workout is based on circuit training which really helps you get fit.
The perfect thing to do with your friends.

                                                        Skipping into good shape

Tshepi also puts them through a good run around the park which is then timed at the next
workout to see how well you do.

                                            Tshepi & Vicky

One of the participants Vicky told me that she loves it.  She joined last year and is now addicted.
She is on her 3rd Camp now.

The trainer Tshepi is certainly a interesting person.  She was born in Vosloorus.
Raised by her single Mum.  She has studied Sports Management and done an Aerobics Course.
She has taught at many Virgin Actives both as a Lifestyle Consultant and Personal Trainer.
Tshepi even worked on a Cruise Ship and at Unilever helping with their Wellness Campaign.
She is now freelance and still gives classes at Virgin Active.

I asked her what advice she has for Female Entrepreneurs?

'Grab any opportunity that presents itself, always seek opportunities.  Don't let
opportunities go by.'

Where does she see herself in 10 years?

' My own gym in a township, doing Sports Development for girls.'

Tshepi loves to go to the Movies for fun.

What fitness tips does she have for the ladies?

'Always pull the navel into the spine.'

Tshepi tells me that Adventure Boot Camp is very easy to sign up for.
