WIN WIN WIN: Body20 – Glenashley



Are you tired of attending a regular gym? Feel like you are not making any progress? Don’t have enough time in the day to work-out and be a fully functional human being? Well, there is hope Durbanites with the NEW Body20 Studio in Glenashley which introduces us to an innovative fitness technology called electro-muscular stimulation (EMS).

Body20 Glenashley

Where it all began…

While its introduction into the public domain is kinda recent, the technology first emerged in the ‘60s, when sports doctors in the Soviet Union used it as a form of strength training for elite athletes, some 10 years prior to its adoption by western nations. Another use of EMS that emerged during the same period was to help injured sportsmen to regain their former mobility and strength.

Today, advances in this technology have broadened its scope. Electro-muscular stimulation is now widely used by top fitness studios, who provide effective, personalised training programmes that can save up to 80% of the time normally required to achieve the same results when following a conventional exercise programme. These programmes may be used either with or without weights, and are adapted to suit customers of all ages and fitness levels.

How it all works…

Electrodes positioned above the targeted muscle groups deliver a pulsed electrical charge that causes an involuntary contraction identical to that required to perform physical exercise, such as lifting weights. However, because the current produces multiple contractions, a 20-minute Body20 EMS session is the equivalent of around four to six hours spent pumping iron.


Visit our Facebook page to enter our “Body20 Makeover” competition where one lucky Durbanite will win a BODY20 (Glenashley) voucher to the value of R 4000.00 this will entitle him/her to 10 EMS sessions and 10 Inbody assessments. Std. T&C’s apply

Still not convinced?

We recently sent Durbanite team member, Tee for a trial session, this is what she had to say:

“At first I was quite hesitant to be honest and didn’t know what to expect. Flashes of being electrocuted may have crossed my mind. BUT Linde was so sweet and immediately put my exaggerated imagination at ease. I got strapped into a cool suit which is quite comfy (side note: it keeps all the “bits” in) and I was ready to go. During the session I was guided step-by-step through a light workout which I definitely felt the next day! I was quite amazed at how it REALLY worked my muscles.”

If you are keen to give it a go, but still a skeptic give the team a call and they will happily setup a trial session with you – no strings attached – Click Here to view their Facebook page.

Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists who brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music. While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.

Ziggy Alberts announces his debut South African tour as he heads to Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town this October




Ziggy Alberts’ first ever South African visit will anticipate the release of his forthcoming sixth studio album, DANCING IN THE DARK, out 04 November 2022.

Musically, Ziggy’s sound has raised comparisons to the likes of early Ben Howard or Jack Johnson. His sound is laid back, soulful and folk-tinged, and his songwriting is honest and personal. Whilst Ziggy Alberts is similar to his contemporaries in writing about his personal experiences, his music is layered with subtextual references to issues close to his heart, such as the natural world, the human experience and the wider planet.

DANCING IN THE DARK has been driven by real-time releases, including the singles I BELIEVE, TATTOOS, THE GREAT DIVIDE and most recently, THE SUN & THE SEA featuring Donovan Woods, which all find their home on the album. The new record sits in a genre – self-titled by Ziggy – as “Future Folk”. In his own words, “the album is a blend of the honest and raw, with the smoothness and touch of synthesised soundscapes, intentional tuning and programmed organic samples… that reflects accurately the range of experiences we are having as humans in our current world.” Matched with Ziggy’s storytelling and sincere songwriting, DANCING IN THE DARK shows yet another step in Alberts’ growth as an artist, his music and personal explorations, both introspectively and in the natural world.

Founder of his independent label, Commonfolk Records, and book publishing house, Commonfolk Publishing, Ziggy Alberts has managed to craft what many musicians and authors dream of – the ability to tell a story on their own terms. In 2022, Ziggy was awarded an APRA for his track letting go. He has also earned ARIA Platinum certifications for Laps Around The Sun (Double Platinum), Gone, Runaway, Heaven, Love Me Now, Stronger and Four Feet in the Forest (EP), plus Gold certifications for his Laps Around The Sun album and six tracks in his catalogue.
