It is with a heavy heart that we postpone the Sweat 4 a Cause charity event due to Covid-19 precautions. Originally scheduled for the 21st of March, we've postponed to the 27th of June 2020. Your health and safety is important to us and we look forward to celebrating the country being healthy, happy and Covid free later in the year with this awesome event. That said, you are still more than welcome to make a donation directly to the charity right now as they are in dire need of supplies, including hand sanitizers. Visit for more details on how to donate. The new date will be 27 June 2020 from 9am – 11am. If you have already booked and paid for a ticket, that ticket will still be honoured.

What to expect at the event:

Think Bootcamp – but with a little more oomph and fun! There will be tire flips, squats, burpees and a whole lot of other fun vibey step workouts! So bring you’re a-game! For every circuit you complete, you earn a warrior stripe! There are 5 warrior stripes! Can you complete the X-anity challenge and help raise much-needed funds for Ubuntu House?


Why you should support this event

 Dream Body Fitness is deeply rooted in the concept of community. We’re a family. A third place for people that is their home away from home. For some, that’s a sanctuary. For others, it’s a launchpad to greatness. We witness the power of community in motion every day, from members who support one another on their transformation journey all the way through to members like Xanet, who use their own transformation journey to create opportunity for others, such as Ubuntu House, through fitness and wellness events. We love that. It’s ‘paying it forward’ in a powerful way. A way where each of our personal journeys integrates with the story of someone else’s life. Ubuntu. I am who I am because of who we all are. Social Responsibility is in our DNA. Investing in charity events and supporting communities less fortunate than our own is a natural extension of who we are” says co-founder of Dream Body Fitness Steve Mululu.

About the charity

Ubuntu House take care of babies from birth to two years who have been abandoned, orphaned, neglected or who were born out of an unplanned and crisis pregnancy. When possible babies are reunited with their parents or biological families. If reunification is not possible, babies are placed in a forever family through adoption. House parents Miems and Naas Vermaak have to date cared for 656 babies. 425 babies were placed with adoptive parents over the last 12 years.
