VIVA Gym SA
WHO WE ARE The Viva Gym concept has been brought to South Africa from Europe, to finally offer something that this country has been missing: a gym with high quality, world-class equipment at an affordable rate. We believe that everybody should be striving to be fit and healthy, and to do this we have made it as convenient and affordable for you as possible. We do this by cutting through all of the unnecessary extras that drive up monthly fees at existing gyms, such as swimming pools and steam rooms; Viva has instead decided to focus on providing a modern, energetic and innovative exercise experience that will appeal to all. EQUIPMENT At Viva Gym, we realise that everyone is different. Not only in their fitness goals, but what drives them. So whether you just want to get in shape, train for a specific sport, boost your energy levels, or just look your best, we’re dedicated to help you reach your personal goals. At Viva Gym you’ll find nothing but the best. No gimmicks, no fads. Nothing but proven fitness equipment and facilities that are internationally recognised for their quality and effectiveness. Our equipment is exactly what you’d expect to find in a premium gym, plus we’ve got a few secret weapons. Make the most of your workout with our Ziva Performance Functional Training Station and comprehensive range of functional training equipment including Powerbags, Kettlebells, TRX, Speed ladders and Coreboards. We also have over 210 pieces of the latest brand new fitness machines that will provide for every training need imaginable.
