Karobics the new game in town

Fitness enthusiasts were treated to an aerobics session at Gordon’s Bay beach at the weekend.

Fitness instructer Coral Jacobs (35), an Eerste River local, led the session on Saturday (5 September), following requests from her clients, which was uploaded to her Facebook page: CJ Karobics.

Jacobs ventured into the fitness business in 2006, after graduating with a Sports Management qualification.

“Back then, people often told me that I would never qualify as a fitness instructer because I was young, but I soldiered on.

“During the same time after graduation I started my karate classes, which served as a foot in the door, as it also required one to be fit,” Jacobs related.

In a quest to ensure that her dream of being an aerobics instructor materialises, but not wanting to steer away from karate, Jacobs started referring to the classes as karobics, which is a combination of karate and aerobics.

Though fitness is her passion CJ Karobics is only in its third year.

“It has been an amazing three years. The response I got has been life-changing,” she said proudly.

Though she resides outside of the basin the eager fitness instructer has a steady client base especially n Gordon’s Bay.

“Hence the session on the beach. I wanted my clients to have a good time.”

Jacobs, has also set her guns in promoting body positivity among women, which is also one of the primary reasons why she started CJ Karobics.

“I am pro women, pro health and pro fitness, if one loses weight in the process then it is a bonus.”

The Karobics session held at Gordon’s Bay beach last Saturday was the first of many that Jacobs would love to host.

“I am over the moon,” she exclaimed.

“My first ever beach session was a major success and I really want to do it more often. All of us enjoyed it so much. My clients even requested another one, so I am working on that.”

However, her client base is not confined to Gordon’s Bay, it spreads from Eerste River to Macassar as well.

Quizzed on the plans she has for the future Jacobs, said that she would like keep on encouraging body positivity and grow her fitness classes.
