Big ups to Adi­das’ pop-up gym

Noth­ing beats wak­ing up with the sun and get­ting your sweat on.

The feel­ing is even bet­ter when Adi­das in­vites you to a 6.30am ses­sion at a pop-up gym on a rooftop.

Hun­dreds of women gath­ered at the Sand­ton City rooftop to en­joy a great three hours of sweaty fun. Miss SA, DemiLeigh Nel-Peters, was among them.

The morn­ing started with a yoga ses­sion to get the body ready for the more rig­or­ous aer­o­bics work­out to fol­low.

The event, hosted by Let­shego Zulu and Khethiwe Mlan­geni, was well or­gan­ised. In­sta­gram ex­er­cise sen­sa­tion Ma­pule Ndhlovu – bet­ter known by her han­dle @Queen­fit­nass – gave some of the at­ten­dees a skip­ping rope chal­lenge and a burpee chal­lenge. The win­ner of each chal­lenge walked away with a R5 000 Adi­das voucher.

The re­ally fun part was the Afropoli­tan Gum­boot work­out, which was a first for many. Af­ter the women col­lected the boots that Adi­das was giv­ing away, ev­ery­body got back in place to chal­lenge them­selves do­ing gum­boot danc­ing moves.

This was a morn­ing well spent. Ev­ery morn­ing should start like this.
