Take Advantage Of Cape Town's Outdoor Free Exercise Options With The North Face

 

 

Cape Town is all about health and fitness and the city has created 47 outdoor gyms around our city for communities to enjoy for free. The outside gym areas are scattered around the city offering breathtaking views of the parks, the ocean, or our famous mountain. Open to the public and offers the option of health and fitness to the masses, especially those who cannot afford commercial gyms. These gyms are designed with safety in mind suitable for adults of all ages and fitness levels and are perfect for workouts in the summer heat.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is safer to exercise outdoors rather than in a gym. Many fitness centers have since reopened, though some may appear a little different in terms of occupancy, procedures, and offerings.

With an athletic range of clothing and footwear that is fashionable enough for the outdoor gym, but technical enough to be worn on the trails, The North Face caters to all your fitness needs. Wearing fitness apparel from The North Face will make you want to run, jump, and get active.
