SPAR South Africa’s new My Home Gym exercise programme helps customers stay fit from the comfort of their own homesDownload image
An eight-week long programme, SPAR’s My Home Gym can be followed in the comfort of one’s own home. It has been designed by a registered biokineticist and is based on three sessions per week with cardio days in between. Participants are encouraged to continue after the eight weeks have finished, building the training into their regular exercise routine.
Videos, which outline the programme and demonstrate each exercise, can be downloaded from SPAR South Africa’s website. There are also printable guides to assist with stretching, warming-up and cardio routines, as well as weekly calendars for planning. Best of all, it’s completely free!
“A healthy lifestyle is all things in moderation,” says SPAR South Africa Food Safety Manager & Dietitian, Lauren Wilson.
“We want our customers and our employees to focus on healthy eating and exercise but we understand that with busy work and family schedules, keeping this up can be tough. Not many people can afford the cost of being a member of a gym, let alone a personal trainer. That’s why we have partnered with professional biokineticist, Joe Xaba, who has helped us put together an exercise programme that can be followed at home, at your own pace.
“The videos show each exercise’s technique, explained in detail by Joe and demonstrated by our host, Lelo. Once you’ve seen how to execute each exercise correctly, you can start the programme.”
The exercise campaign is the latest addition to SPAR South Africa’s programme of promoting an active lifestyle. The SPAR Partner also organises a series of road races in cities around the country, which promote women’s running and is the main sponsor of the South African Netball team and the KwaZulu-Natal soccer club, AmaZulu.
