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 canapé & wine calories. Check out and 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!!
