In the words of the famous South African poet, Louis Leipoldt, I also would like to hail October with this free translation of his famous poem, Oktobermaand:

Month of October! Loveliest, loveliest month of all!

Who can wish for more than flowers, as bright as day and night?

Who expects better, lovelier, glorious?

Who expects better, lovelier, glorious?

What care I for winter?

Why talk now of May?

What does it matter if dark days re-appear?

I’m now in October, loveliest, loveliest month of all

Each day so clear, so splendid every evening!

…Except for a few unexpected cold fronts, of course! ☺☺☺…But, it`s just amazing to see how our members are not put off by the cold weather – all those diligent efforts during winter have now become…HABIT. Thank you for that, and well done!

Our Summer Challenge is still in full swing, and 114 members are still in the race against 32 sessions. Good luck, everybody! We are especially proud of our two pregnant Challenge members who are going strong!!!

…But how are you, really? Have your enthusiastic bikini shape-up goals waned into just the occasional Summer workout? It’s time to reassess your habits. With the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, find that familiar conviction again that life is beginning over again this summer of 2019. IT`S. NEVER. TOO. LATE.

Remember, our end-of-the-year-function is not only for our Challenge members – if you have been part of our studio for a month, you receive a certificate on that evening. I really, really would like to invite you all to consider attending this fun-filled event – always a highlight on our studio calendar.

Please, please remember that the study only closes on the 20th of December – we are only hosting our function earlier, simply because of the fact that the school closes then!

This year, we once again would like to invite you all to bring your daughter, or mom, or a friend, to join us from the 20th of November to be part of our studio until our closing date – your guest only pays R280 to join our classes for those 4 weeks, no joining fee! (Girls have to be 11 years or older!)

A hearty welcome all our new members:

Clariz Olivier, Marzê Wentzel, Confidence Gumede, Digna Bosch, Michelle Maphonga, Hafeeza Jassat, Edy Ngwenya, Carien Nochnagel, Thobeka Khambule, & Nomvula M.

Welcome back to the following former members who have joined our fitness family again:

Natalie Robberts, Lihle Madonsela, Marlene Robinson & Anje Peens.

Happy birthday to our October birthday members:

4 Mariaan van Rooyen, 7 Marie-Louise Myburgh, 10 Janelle van Eeden, 11 Michelle Swanepoel, 12 Karin Randell and Joané Mahne, 13 Nhlanhla Zitha and Digna Bosch, 20 Nikemari Viljoen, 21 Elsje de Beer, 26 Sandrie Marais and 30 Brenda Steyn.

If your birthday is not on the list – please contact me, and please check that your indemnity form/registration form is with me!

Congratulations to our lucky draw free month of October member – Rethia Naudé.

Melissa du Plessis trou binnekort met Carel Beetge – baie sterkte met die groot dag!!!

Ons is jammer om te hoor van jou broer se siekbed, Frikkie. Baie sterkte.

We are privileged to have Lesha in the studio every afternoon from 17:00 to 18:00 for child-care. This service comes at no extra cost to our members, but it needs to be arranged every day with Mirna before 14:00.

It’s a privilege to welcome Edrei du Toit and Dedrê Schoeman to our Instructor team. Both of them are completing their Rebound Instructor course on the 19th of October. Edrei will also be fulltime at the studio from November, and we are especially excited about the part she will play in assisting our apparatus members!

Don’t hesitate to voice any concern or complaint with me, any time, we are at your service!

Thank you for being fierce and friendly, and for the part you are playing in making our fitness studio a family, not only a facility. With barely three months left of third decade, keep your feet on the ground and reach for the stars!

Yours in fitness
