Our all-pink “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” bounti Marathon, on the 20th of March, was absolutely wonderful! Seriously, what an epic morning!
It was absolutely breath-taking to see so many of you bouncing all pretty in pink! I have been a fitness professional for over 20 years, and I must say, I don’t think I’ll ever get used to seeing so many different, beautiful people celebrating and enjoying a modality that has changed my life so impactfully.
A special shout out and thank you to all of you who drove and flew all the way from Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban to attend! Your commitment, dedication and love for rebounding is exceptionally admirable.
Similarly to our previous marathon, one of the most inspiring aspects of this event was the fact that there was such a diverse crowd bouncing. Absolutely everyone was there – from rebounding fanatics to beloved bounti instructors and Academy members, to complete newbies who had never bounced before. It was extraordinary to bounce with so many of you, all of different shapes, sizes, colours and walks of life. Our marathon, once again, lived up to South Africa’s proud title as the “The Rainbow Nation”.
Huge thanks to our special guest, Irene-Louise van Wyk, who performed her hit song, “Tekkies Brand” and her brand-new single “Maak ‘n Plan”. Irene sounded impeccable and bouncing to her singing live was a super-fun first for me!
Tertia and I released the choreographed rebounding routines of both songs on socials well in advance, so that you could all learn it in preparation for the marathon – and wow! I was impressed! You ladies really did well. It was so amazing to bounce with everyone in synchronisation – and what an incredible view it was from the stage!
Another special thanks to all of you who stopped by our all-pink mini pop-up shop! I hope that you’re enjoying all the goodies you purchased – we really appreciate the support. We also appreciate the support from all you lovely ladies who sported your gorgeous Body Kind athleisure and funky bounti Soles and Socks – you looked phenomenal!
Our brilliant instructors also deserve a huge virtual round of applause for bringing their world-class A-game – yet again. I’m truly blessed to be working with a group of such special, hardworking ladies who are just as passionate about rebounding as I am, and each represent the bounti brand so well.
Thank you to my incredible bounti team for all the sacrifice, hard work and elbow grease that went into organising and executing this event, and to Biogen and Discovery Vitality for being such lovely partners. Last, but not least, thank you to The Wilds Lifestyle Centre in Waterfall, Midrand, for providing us with such a stunning venue.
Rebounding truly is a miracle exercise that continues to inspire me every day. Actually seeing so many of you experiencing this amazing exercise modality at our bounti Marathon was absolutely surreal – seriously, a goosebumps-inducing moment!
We love hosting events like these – they truly bring so many of us together in wellness and provide such a sense of community, which I think is extremely important after being isolated for so long.
It was so lovely meeting all of you, and hearing all your stories! It’s so fulfilling for us to gain a sense of appreciation from all of you relative to our products and services, and see all of your remarkable transformations – each and every one of you is a living, breathing testament to how rebounding can change lives. Seeing and hearing so many of your stories, testaments and transformations in person was profoundly powerful.
With all of this being said, we can’t wait to see you all again at our next marathon – we’re looking at setting and breaking an even bigger rebounding record very soon, so watch this space and follow us on socials for updates!
If you aren’t bouncing with us yet, I strongly encourage you to join the party and our growing bounti family. Start your rebounding journey with bounti now!
