This is the part where we tell you that there is a great, non-commitment solution that we all can get into. If you have not heard about this gym or why it is becoming so popular, read on.

Award-Winning Ritual Gym is officially open in Johannesburg. Ritual “The 30-minute” Gym is giving thousands of time-starved working professionals, hustlers, or just us serial gin lifters, in cities around the world a much-needed option to get their workout in each day and is thrilled to be extending this offering to us fellow South Africans.


“In today’s busy world, people have less time for themselves. Work and family commitments, as well as finding time for entertainment and other activities means that personal fitness and mobility are becoming less of a priority,” says Brad Robinson, CEO and Co-Founder of Ritual Gym

Using proven techniques based on High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Ritual Gym’s 30-min workout concept was first tested and proven in one of the most densely populated cities in Asia – Singapore.

The gym’s overwhelming success in the city, which is home to a population of 5 million with a predominantly white-collar working class, proved that it was possible for full, effective workouts to fit into the hectic day of any working professional.

Quick Facts

Ritual’s unique “In-and-out in 30-minutes” concept is the brainchild of US serial entrepreneur Brad Robinson and renowned personal trainer and fitness specialist Ian Tan. Ritual Gym sessions combine cardio and strength training into a super-efficient 20-minute workout that trains the whole body, all while focusing on form and efficiency. Train. Shower. Refuel. Out.

Only 10 people at a time – Only 10 clients per session. Plenty of hands-on personal attention from Ritual’s team of world-class coaches.

Forms? What Is Paper? – For added convenience, the much-lauded app means that booking sessions, tracking stats and managing memberships can all happen at the touch of a button.

No Time? Gym kit gone missing? No Problem! – Perfect for anyone looking to squeeze in a workout, as the sessions are focused on the concept of ‘Train. Shower. Refuel. Out.’ Members aren’t even required to wear shoes, as the floors are shock absorbent, and gym kit, state-of-the-art showers, shower accessories and towels are all provided. A smoothie bar is on site to provide quick and nutritious refuels on the way out.
