OUT AND ABOUT WITH GETFIT!
Well done to all the Getfit participants who gave up their
public holiday to attend one of the Getfit sessions that took
place at various venues on 17 th June.
Over 100 people attended sessions in Gillitts and the two
Durban North sessions had to be moved to Crusaders to
accommodate their 90 keen participants, including 60 at
the 8am session (right)!
KETTLEBELL INSTRUCTORS COURSE
While the rest of the Getfit participants were enjoying their long weekend break,
twelve of the Getfit trainers and staff took part in a gruelling sixteen-hour
Kettlebell Certified Instructor training course at the Getfit Fitness Centre in
Gillitts on 15 th and 16 th June.
The KBSA Level 1 (Kettlebell Basics – Instructor Level 1) training course is
authorised and recognized by kettlebell guru, Steve Cotter, and the IKFF and
was conducted by Trent Murgatroyd (right), a kettlebell instructor and the IKFF
Regional Representative for Africa.
The course participants were taught the four essential lifts that all beginners
must master before they move on to more advanced techniques, namely:
• press (basic/strict)
The course was a lot of fun but also very painful with many blistered hands,
bruised wrists and sore bodies!!!
Getfit participants … get ready for some awesome kettlebell training – starting
soon at GETFIT!!
GETFIT ATHLETIC CLUB
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
The Getfit Athletic Club continues to grow with the acquisition of
our 70 th member last week!
I am also pleased to confirm that our application for registration

been approved, we can start production of our race and training
We will shortly be sending a letter out to all members updating
you on training runs, subs, discounted running shoes, etc.
In the meantime, the route for the Club’s fortnightly Time Trial
