Proud gym-owner Tony Bennett said being the “health fanatic” he is, he opened the gym two and a half years ago and has seen the number of members grow from zero to 300 since Curves Greenacres was established.

“In two and a half years, we have grown enormously and we have changed the lifestyles and figures of numerous women,” Bennett said.

In addition, other branches of the national franchise in and around the metro also are offering prizes: the Uitenhage, Walker Drive and Figtree clubs are each offering five fitness memberships.
