Are you stuck in an exercise rut? Or struggling to get back into a routine post-2020? Let Virgin Active’s Quest, a new points-based challenge, motivate you. Not only will it help you get (or stay) healthy and fit, but you could also win your share of prizes worth R5 million!
Many of us let our exercise routine slide in 2020. And now that we’re finding our feet in the ‘real world’ again, we’re looking for new and exciting ways to get fit, moving and feeling good again! The last year has also shown us how important it is to prioritise health and fitness. The immune boosting benefits of exercise and the positive impact on mental wellness are crucial – snd we all need a bit of both right now.
Virgin Active recognised the need to lean into change and provide new ways of enabling active lifestyles. That’s why they created Quest – a competition to guide members through a variety of exercise challenges that reward them for their efforts.
What is Quest?
Live active. Collect badges. Win! Exclusive to Virgin Active members, Quest is an exciting new points-based challenge which rewards you for being active. The more active you are, the more chances you have of winning a R1 million cash prize and a share of a further R4 million in prizes.
Quest aims to help you reach your health and fitness goals by challenging you to try new things and incorporate variety into your training routines. All you do is select a goal you’ll work towards over a six-week period: lose weight; build strength; get fit; relieve stress or stay active, my way (for those who already have a workout regime in place).
Each week, Quest participants will receive challenges to complete. These are based on your goals and can be completed in club or online. We all know boredom is a motivation killer, so Quest is built around the principal of cross training. Challenges will expose you to new forms of exercise that you may not necessarily associate with their goal – yoga for strength training, or strength training for weight loss.
Between now and August, you can take part in as many six-week Quest challenges as you want. The more active you are, the higher your chances of winning!
How Quest works
1. Sign up: Connect with Virgin Active via WhatsApp so that they can start sending you challenges. You can also visit the Virgin Active Website or chat to one of their friendly club staff.
2. Get active and complete challenges: Choose a goal or select ‘stay active, my way’ if you want to do your own activities. You’ll receive a range of challenges to complete each week to earn points. These can include training in-club, online, outdoors or even making a healthy meal choice.
3. Earn points: Earn 60 points in a week to collect a badge; earn six badges and you’ll be entered into the R1 million grand prize draw. There’s also R4 million in prizes to be won. The more points you earn, the more chance you have of winning.
The grand prize draw winner will walk away with R1 million in cash! And there are also monthly rewards worth R4 million (these include discounts at Totalsports and amazing prizes from Kauai, Virgin Limited Edition, Garmin, Clarins, Sealand, Le Creuset, Heuer, SA Rugby, SA Cricket, Stormers, Lions, CTCFC and Virgin Active kit bags, membership upgrades and personal training session).
Virgin Quest ends on 31 August 2021, and the draw will take place on 6 September.
