take your fitness to a whole new level with redemption

Arran McKenzie, owner of Redemption Martial Arts & Fitness Centre, has been involved with Martial Arts and training for the past 12 years. He was a two time South African Kickboxing champion and has competed at both amateur and professional levels. He is passionate about Martial Arts training, health and fitness and is committed to helping others achieve their fitness goals and improve their general well being. Arran firmly believes that one can achieve anything if prepared to put in the hard work and be consistent.

Actor Ryan Reynolds, Boxer and former rugby player Sonny Bill Williams, and both the Royal Navy and South African boxing teams are just a few of the top names who’ve chosen to train at Redemption when in town.

One of the classes is POWR BOX 1200. Blending authentic kickboxing training with intense calorie burning exercises and phenomenal resistance training, POWR BOX1200 takes fitness to a whole new level, not to mention burning up to 1200 calories in an hour session! Nothing else comes close.

This class is all about fitness, toning and weight loss. You will burn fat and tone up by punching and kicking a real hanging heavy bag. The resistance from hitting a hanging heavy bag burns more calories and tones muscles faster than if you were just punching and kicking the air. The punches and kicks are kept basic to focus on the fitness aspect of the workout rather than the martial art itself, plus building and strengthening muscle with TRX suspension training, body weight resistance training, medicine ball training, stability ball training and lots more.

Since the class is for beginners and advanced members, it is geared for each member to go at his or her own pace and build up their pace each class.

Take advantage of a fantastic 2-for-1 winter special: sign up during the next three months, bring a friend and one of you pays nothing. Or split the costs and each pay half. The choice is yours. To find out more about the special, email Arran at

To find out more about POWR BOX 1200 or any of the other classes on offer, visit the website, email or call 082 612 7472.

You’ll find Redemption Martial Arts and Fitness Centre at No. 6 Bree Street, Cape Town.

get fit and have fun with flamenco dance by la rosa flamenco company

La Rosa is well known and loved for its vibrant, passionate Flamenco productions with casts of talented musicians, singers and dancers that play to enthralled audiences in an around Cape Town. Lesser known, perhaps, is that La Rosa also offers flamenco and Spanish dance classes, an exciting and fun way to get fit and healthy and learn a new skill.

Evening adult classes and courses offer more than just flamenco techniques. Students get to explore Spanish culture, its traditions and innovations, while fostering cultural bonds and an awareness of cultural diversity.

A somewhat more informal and perhaps even more fun approach to this art form is the Saturday morning Flamenco Boot Camp. As can be seen from the poster below it offers a comprehensive ‘tool kit’ for the basics of rhythm and technique. And at only R360 for the full six weeks, it’s perhaps one of the least expensive ways we’ve seen to have fun and get fit.

La Rosa also offers children’s classes. Previously, students had to travel into the city, but lessons are now available in Sea Point, Woodstock, Table View, Kenridge and Westlake (Tokai). More details in the image below.

Be sure not to miss en el Tablao Flamenco, La Rosa’s new production in association with Artscape. Tablao, meaning ‘wooden stage’ in Spanish, refers to the small piece of wooden floor used in flamenco performance. Featuring the cream of South Africa’s flamenco dancers, singers and musicians, this production explores the dynamics of Spanish night-life during the early 1940s. Beauty, grace, passion, pride and a touch of humour are juxtaposed with exploitation and soul-searching in this unique staging of flamenco.

En el Tablao Flamenco is on at the Oude Libertas Amphitheatre from 30 January to 2 February and at the Artscape Theatre from 14 to 23 February. Full details can be found here or click here to go straight to Computicket to book online.
