I am fortunate to be invited to many prestigious events, launches and premieres, and¬†I was particularly¬†excited to have been invited to the launch of the newest additions to the Fitbit line-up, the Flex 2 and Charge 2. Guests at the event included Comedian and my good friend, Siv Ngesi as well as¬†Olympic Medalist Swimmer¬†Cameron van der Burgh who shared his journey with Fitbit and how it has benifited¬†his training regime. Whether you simply enjoy the occasional run or swim or you’re a pro-athlete, Fitbit has a device that suits and is geared to help improve your lifestyle. As a fitness fanatic myself, these are certainly must-have devices to monitor and help you reach your fitness goals and I was thrilled¬†to get my hands on these new and improved devices. I’ll be using Fitbit¬†in my fitness regime, so be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter for updates, tips and tricks on how I use Fitbit… Enough about me, let’s talk about the new devices…

Certainly the high-light of my week last week was attending the launch of BUC Fitness Club in Sea Point, Cape Town. This state of the art fitness club is like none other, situated at The¬†Point, 76 Regent Road, Sea Point, Cape Town, members enjoy a complete fitness regime with some of South Africa’s top personal trainers and equipment. BUC is also the home of the increasingly popular S.W.E.A.T.1000, hailed by Elle Magazine as “one of the hottest fitness trends for summer.”¬†It was so nice to see fit and friendly faces including the owners Paul Rothschild and Andrew Rothschild along with Paul‘s lovely wife and my good friend Concetta Rothschild. Guests (and members) in attendance included models Tracy McGregor, Roxy Louw, Brent Thompson, Beverley Dean, fashion designer Hendrik Vermeulen, actors Bjorn Steinbach and Alex McGregor, fashion stylist Jasna Zellerhoff and my guest for the evening stylist¬†Kuyan Kotzen. It was certainly a party to remember, and definitely the place to return to burn off those canap√© & wine calories. Check out www.buc.cc and¬†www.sweat1000.com¬†to find out more about memberships or just to book a session – I’ll be stopping by BUC¬†and¬†Sweat 1000 soon and will be sure to write about my experience here, stay tuned… Summer is coming!!
