South African Boxing Grannies

looking after our senior citizens in terms of encouraging a healthy lifestyle with physical training.

The problem we aim to solve:

Many senior citizens no longer exercise and become bored, demotivated and unfit. We're changing that by providing boxing training.

The solution our project offers:

We offer them training with volunteer trainers. We provide transportation for those that are unable to come to the gym for their daily routine of exercise. We provide pre and post work out meals and training equipment and gear.

The impact our project had so far:

We train 30 grannies every Tuesday & Thursday. It has been in media abroad (BBC, CNN & Aljazeerah).

Who is behind this project?

We love community engagement: The more you interact, the more stars you get! (E.g.: Write a comment, publish a project or apply for a need)

About the project

The A-Team’s core purpose is to develop individuals who want to follow an amateur fitness, boxing & aerobics programme.

We give motivational talks and offer rehab in townships like Alexandra, Soweto, Cosmo City & Diepsloot which are geared to inspire the elderly and youth. We want to encourage them to stay focused with a healthy lifestyle and not give up on their goals regardless of what those goals may be.

In many Western countries, more and more people are living longer. As part of this demographic shift, many people are participating in sport in the Master category.

In the past, sport was considered important for the development of young people however, the potential for positive development across the lifespan is now recognised. With this in mind A-Team Fitness has been developing sport programmes for senior citizen participation with incredible success. Our senior citizens are now ready to showcase their skill and prowess at our first ever Magogo Boxing Marathon.
