Surfing, boxing & clay pigeons - The Armoury Boxing Club - Part 2

September 20, 2017

Think back to a time of gentlemanly brawling, chivalrous fisticuffs and duels for honour. This boxing club embodies both the honour code of boxing clubs from times gone by, but also the grit. 

You will find a welcoming environment with a minimum of posturing and a range of activities you can lock in on, suitable to your fitness level and desire for a scrap. 

All the coaches are former professionals, which makes them technicians, tacticians and physical trainers of note. At The Armoury you are in expert hands, every single one of the amazing employees there has a solid boxing/fitness (and in some cases military) experience, and it all comes together to create an exhilarating, liberating yet entirely safe experience. 

Whether it’s fitness you’re looking for, or to test your mettle in the ring, this is the place to go.

Green Point Urban Park

December 06, 2016

Grab your sunscreen and your hat, you’ve been indulging in all the finer things that Cape Town has to offer, now it’s time to pay some of that decadence forward :-) Bring the kids, there is something for every age at the Green Point Urban Park. Tucked between the Cape Town Stadium grounds and the lighthouse marking the border between Green and Mouille Point the park is a truly South African take on a European style common. Rolling green lawns, outdoor exercise equipment, a massive biodiversity garden, several play areas with all kinds of things for kids to climb on, run around in and crawl over. The park is divided into three areas, People & Plants, Wetlands, and Discovering Biodiversity, with many information boards that make the stroll informative as well as beautiful. The fact that all the water you see comes directly from springs and rivers on top of Table Mountain only adds to the magic. Seeing as you’ve done your bit to burn some calories, maybe you could allow yourself a little reward, perhaps in the form of an ice-cream? The Creamery Café in Mouille Point is artisanal ice cream at its finest. Try the classics, such as the Sea Salt Caramel or the Rosetta Roastery Coffee flavours, and pop over the road to have a look at the last remnants of the RMS Athens which was wrecked on these rocks on the 17###sup/sup### of May 1865.
