I know finding space in your monthly budget for a gym contract or studio membership can be tough but getting and staying fit doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Perfect for newbie and experienced fitness fundis, who love to try new things and spice up their weekly workout routines, FitKey gives you more choice at an affordable price. Even more exciting news is that thanks to a new partnership with WeChat new FitKey members can now save big on signing up for the app. How big you ask? Try 5 studio classes for just R200 big!
That’s right folks, it’s time to ditch the excuses and start training because FitKey and WeChat are offering new members 50% back when they sign up and book FitKey classes through WeChat. I love FitKey because instead of committing to just one gym, the app gives you access to thousands of class options at a huge variety of studios across your city.
From Yoga and Pilates to HIIT, Boxing, Crossfit, and even Boot Camp, you can do it all at a price that works for you. A 5 class FitKey memberships will usually set you back R395 but with this promotion you get 50 percent of your class booking fee paid back into your WeChat wallet (for the first 5 classes booked) to spend on whatever the heck you want (I’d suggest yummy healthy snacks, fabulous gym gear, or you know, more FitKey classes!).
If you’re not sure which classes to sign up for I can personally vouch for the Warm Flow, heated Vinyasa yoga class at Wild Thing (Sea Point, Cape Town), HIIT class at Sweat1000 (various branches in Cape Town & Joburg), strength training BarrTopia class at MyUtopia (Waterfront, Cape Town), SWITCH Functional Training class at SwitchPlayground (Randburg, Johannesburg), Dance Fitness class at World of Dance (Sandton) and strength training class at Arena Wellness (Morningside Johannesburg).
I’ve been a FitKey member for over a year now and it really has changed the way I exercise. To be honest, I’m still trying to figure out how a deal this good exists. I love the variety FitKey offers you and the app is always encouraging me to try new types of exercise and visit new studios in my city. Plus, I don’t have to stop exercising when I travel, when I go to Joburg for work I can use the app to book classes at partner studios close to my hotel and keep up with my fitness routine.
To find a class you want to take part in you simply download WeChat, Follow FitKey’s official account on the app, and start booking classes in your city! FitKey’s partner studios are located all over the country (including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Stellenbosch and Somerset West) and the app allows you to search for classes by date, time, studio, or workout type – once you’ve found a class that meets your fancy, simply click ‘Reserve a Spot’ and that’s it. All that’s left for you to do is rock up 15 minutes before the class and let reception know you’ve booked with FitKey.
