Virgin Active Point
One of the busiest, most popular gyms in Cape Town. This split-level, open plan gym gets particularly busy during peak hours, before and after standard office hours, so try to avoid these times unless you’re especially keen to share your training session with a toned crowd. There is a daylong programme offering everything from Iyengar yoga to pilates, a large indoor pool, squash courts, sunbeds, sauna and steam rooms, and outdoor beach volleyball courts. The club is close to the Sea Point Promenade, so you may opt for a glorious outdoor run, rather than wait in line for one of the ever-busy treadmills.
