CapeTalk Small Business Awards

“We make functional fitness fun and do it better than anyone else!”

If you’re looking for a fun, non-intimidating and effective way to burn fat and build the best body of your life; look no further than Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp in Salt River, a nominee for this year’s Small Business Awards with CapeTalk and Sage One.

“Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp does one thing, and we do it better than anyone else,” says Garth Hendricks, a certified Exercise Scientist and owner of Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp.

Money back guarantee

“We get results!” promises Hendricks who mentions their unconditional, 30-day money back guarantee to back up his claim.

Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp differs from other boot camps in that it operates indoors on a synthetic turf.

It’s very structured with a focus on form and the prevention of injury.

“It’s like having a personal trainer, but in a group setting. At Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp we don't believe in screaming in your face and barking out orders. This is not your average boot camp!

“We want more people to know about us,” says Hendricks. “We want them to know there’s another option than the often intimidating Virgin Active and CrossFit."

Community involvement

Another aspect that sets Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp apart from its competitors is its community involvement.

“We have a responsibility to the communities that we serve and the neighbourhood from which we operate our fitness centre,” says Hendricks. “This is why we believe in getting involved with our communities and contributing locally whenever possible. That's what being a good neighbour is about!”

Explosive Functional Fitness Boot Camp regularly hands out blankets and donates to a number of charity organisations in the area including the Peninsula Feeding Fund and the The Kidzpositive Family Fund.
