Go on an exercise quest for a chance to win big with Virgin Active
Quest is a points-based rewards programme that encourages Virgin Active members to keep moving
If there’s one thing we’ve learnt while challenging old ways and adjusting to new norms, the need to get moving remains constant and important.
“We’ve heard South Africans’ request to come back strong in 2021 and to get back on their fitness journeys, especially ahead of the summer months,” says Callan Sexton, Virgin Active SA exercise director. So Virgin Active has created the Quest challenge to help its members get moving again and supercharge their exercise routines. Virgin Active offers exercise programmes to members, using digital technology to help keep them motivated wherever they are.
Quest is a points-based rewards programme that encourages Virgin Active members to keep moving with fun and easy exercise challenges, designed by fitness experts. It aims to set them on the right track to achieving their health and fitness goals, and rewards them with money and prizes.
Getting started is as easy as choosing a health and fitness goal that you will work towards over six weeks until September 30 2021. These health and fitness goals vary from losing weight; building strength; getting fit; relieving stress and staying active. You can also choose the “my way” goal if you already have a workout regime. Depending on the goal you choose, you will be given a selection of fun exercise challenges.
“The Quest challenge is built about the principle of cross-training because boredom can be such a motivation killer. So, to keep Virgin Active members on their toes and expose them to a variety of exercise classes, training areas and sports equipment available, we’ll mix up the challenges each week,” says Sexton.
The key to your Quest success is consistency. By completing each of these activities throughout the week, you will earn 60 points in a week to collect a badge. Earn six badges over the course of a six-week period and you’ll be entered into the R1m grand prize draw. After six weeks, you should be well on your way to making regular exercise a habit and lifestyle choice.
You already know the drill, the more active you are and the healthier your lifestyle, the more badges you’ll earn and the greater your chances of winning weekly prizes valued at R4m. These include Virgin Active kit bags, membership upgrades and personal training sessions, discounts at TotalSports, and prizes from Kauai, Garmin, SA Rugby, SA Cricket, Stormers, Lions and more.
