Get your Switch on

Switch Playground is the new gym that has recently opened on Bree Street, in Cape Town, offering a unique new fitness program that combines carefully selected aspects of cardiovascular training, functional training, boxing, plyometric training, core stability and power-flow yoga (Shew…is that all?).

Our experience:

Well we definitely got our switch on! This Playground is definitely not for sissies or for ladies who blush easily for that matter, as shirtless walking protein shakes (the trainers) welcome you to the class – intimidating for some, but we got used to this very quickly (#GunShow). Motivational quotes cover the walls as you enter; dramatic lighting just to set the mood; in-house DJ playing only the hottest house summer tracks, topped off with only the best hi-tech gym equipment. But when those disco lights come on – judging goes out the window and everyone gets down to business. Based on a boot camp workout routine, you ‘Switch’ between stations for the duration of your 60min class. Topless, fired up, happy to help trainers are at every station giving you their ‘personal attention’, keeping you motivated for the entire class. This is an ideal workout to enjoy with a partner as you are paired up at the beginning of the class.


Modern, clean bathrooms and changing areas, location is prime, parking is accessible and what’s more, they sell personalised training gear and have a fully stocked café.

Price: Single session prices range from R130, package deals available

    Hi Switch Playground,

    I’m new to Cape Town and looking for a new gym. Could I come for a try out class? How much per month? I also want to start up at yoga but see you offer yoga too. Looking forward to your response
