The Student Gyms on the Groenkloof Campus and LC de Villiers grounds have state-of-the-art facilities, affordable rates and expert trainers on hand to improve your fitness.

Our Exclusive Membership option - R 1200 for students and R 1500 for non-students – allows use of the LC and GROENKLOOF Gyms as well as the Institute for Sport Research (ISR) gym (upstairs at LC) between 11 am and 4 pm Monday to Friday. All classes are free and can be deducted from the student account. The package also includes two body assessments, two programmes, personal training from the Biokinetics students, a six-month subscription to Men’s Health or Shape magazines and one gym towel or t-shirt (while stocks last) all free upon showing of proof of registration.

We still have our normal Year Membership at R 900 for students, and R 1100 for non-students. This includes membership at either the LC Gym or Groenkloof Gym (depending on where one joins). All classes are free, along with one body assessment, a training programme, personal training from the Biokinetics students, Men’s Health or Shape magazines every month (back issues), 30% discount for a year subscription to Men’s Health and a gym towel or t-shirt upon registration (while stocks last).

Our six month (R 450 students & R550 non-students) and monthly (R 110 students & R 140 non-students) memberships will also still be available. These options do not have the benefits of the Year Membership.

A whole array of aerobic classes has been introduced this year and includes yoga, hip-hop and spinning. There is more variety now than ever before. Due to the incredible demand, 2008 will see extra classes being run for aerobics and hip-hop dance. Please note that for 6 month and 1 month members it is an R10 extra per class per month.

We are doing everything we can to improve the basic services and we are constantly assessing our service to ensure the Tuks Student Gym experience is a pleasant one for our customers.
