myUTOPIA is a breath of fresh air in the world of fitness studios. The beautiful, airy studio is situated in Cape Town’s V & A Waterfront, which brims with activity from the shopping centre, the waterfront promenade, and a host of other attractions. The luxury fitness and lifestyle studio is everything one could hope for, combining a 5-star experience and all the extras with yoga, Pilates, Barre and dance workouts. Every aspect of the design and the experience is perfectly planned out with the intention of helping clients effortlessly fit wellness into their busy lives.
When you walk in, you are greeted by a stunning café area and a friendly face at the check-in desk. As you walk through the café, you pass a little shopping area on your way to two sunlit, tranquil fitness rooms. The rooms are already laid out with everything you will need for class. As you walk into class you are handed a towel and a bottle of water. After enjoying a nice sweat session, you receive a cool washcloth on your way to the locker rooms. Here you can lather up with Davines hair products and peruse the café menu while you get ready to head back into the world. If you need your hair styled, just pop over to the next room where someone will blow-dry your hair while you finish your make-up or have lunch.
The fitness classes, like the entire experience at myUTOPIA, are a cut above. Expert instructors guide you through challenging but fun workouts. Before you know it, an hour will have passed, and you will feel like a new person, ready to take on the rest of your day.
And you won’t want to miss the café, where you can order a perfectly prepared cappuccino, smoothie, or meal. Enjoy your delicious food in the café with fibre Internet and abundant comfy seats before heading on your way. And if there’s anything you forgot to grab for dinner, like olive oil or a bar of chocolate, you can pick that up at myUTOPIA as well!
The beautiful, luminous design of the studio is no coincidence. Owner Sandi Dekker, who has experience in interior design, designed the studio herself. Sandi’s dream is to change the health and wellness industry in South Africa. With that dream in mind, she created myUTOPIA to help busy professionals meet their wellness goals. You can walk in with nothing but a change of clothes, and everything is provided for you. One of my personal favourite touches is the cool washcloth, waiting offered after each class. For the same reasons, myUTOPIA is ideal for travellers! No one wants to lug around a yoga mat and a towel on holiday, and the studio has everything you need to keep fit while you’re away from home.
You can find the myUTOPIA class schedule on the MindBody app on your smart phone. Contact details are found on their website here.
