According to Mr Joel Kgokong, Interim Manager: UJ Gymnasia, the gym staff are keen to assist anyone who needs help or is still new in their facilities. “We’re expecting membership registration numbers to go up with the influx of new students and staff this time of year. The numbers also peak between June and July because many people prepare for summer bodies – people also have enough time due to the school holidays,” says Kgokong.
