The Fortuner has a powerful pedigree. It’s been the bestselling medium-sized SUV in South Africa for a very long time, and for good reason: you could argue that as a four-wheeled investment, it offers the most practicality and value on South African roads. It’s hard to find a tar and trail partner that offers as much bang for your buck. Here are four reasons it should be your next lifestyle investment (with training benefits): 1. IT CAN CARRY ALL THE GEAR (AND PEOPLE) YOU NEED. Want to be able to ferry your kids or friends around safely, and make sure you have enough space for all your lifestyle gear, like mountain bikes, kayaks and road bikes? Sorted – the Fortuner has plenty of interior space, and a decent-sized boot area. It’s a…

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES DATE 1-5 AUGUST 2018 LOCATION MADISON, WISCONSIN, USA PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF CROSSFIT The Games take place over five days of competition, and form the final sweat- and chalk-stained gladiatorial arena where the fittest men, women, masters, teens and teams from around the world have earned the right to compete through their placement in the global CrossFit competition called the Open, or through winning Sanctional events.

The challenges are mostly unknown before the Games officially start. What is known: every single workout of the 14 will be brutal. The challenges in…

I eat healthily enough. But mostly Monday through to Thursday; by Friday, my lack of a healthy work/life balance has forced the willpower out of me. And I train hard enough. But only three or four times a week, because... drinks happen, friends and commitments happen, and life gets in the way. I’m in decent shape, but not great shape. I tend to have good weeks followed by bad weeks, and sometimes I wish I could just take back control – I’d like to be a few kilos heavier, and get back to a routine. If you’re anything like me, you need a plan: a blueprint to achieve these goals, including a better body. Starting on page 104, we have a guide to identifying your stumbling blocks and building a…

WORKOUTS QUESTION: I’ve started HIIT workouts – how do I avoid overtraining? “The objective is progression,” says Ian Pienaar, founder of Thrive Fitness, a new Cape Town-based gym that offers HIIT workouts. “You want to keep pushing your body a little bit harder with each session; but if you push your body too hard in the beginning, you’re bound to fail,” he explains. “If you have stress levels that are already high because of work, adding more stress to your body is going to cause it to shut down.” TRAIN SMARTER: MH.CO.ZA/WORKOUTS FITNESS 320 The number of seconds men should deep squat daily. Spend at least 5 to 10 minutes per day in a deep squat position. The purpose: (1) to get in some much-needed mobility work for your tight and stiff ankles, knees, and hips;…
