Boot camp boosts fitness

SHAPING UP: Staff members and students are boosting their fitness at the Boot Camp. SHAPING UP: Staff members and students are boosting their fitness at the Boot Camp.

Staff and students are shaping up at a free boot camp series at the Outdoor Gym on the Bellville campus.

The boot camp sessions take place on weekdays from 4 pm to 6 pm and staff and students can join any 30-minute slot during this time.

“Professional trainers facilitate the camp every day. The pieces of outdoor equipment in the gym are used to enhance body fitness. The sessions are absolutely free, there is no sign-up fee and you can come whenever you feel you need to level up your fitness,” said Phillip Chibvuri from the CPUT Residence Business Unit.

Chibvuri said participation and interest in the boot camp were growing.

“We are looking at ways to bring excitement to all students and staff about appreciating the spaces we have on our campuses as well as the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, which can go a long way in enhancing productivity and output,” he said.

Chibvuri added, “Once the boot camp has deeper roots we are looking at giving students and staff swimming lessons to equip them with this skill more especially as we live in a coastal metropole.”
