TITLE: Cactic Fitness Gets Behind Sport and Fitness in Local Schools 

Johannesburg, 27 July 2015: Cactic Fitness, the leaders in innovative modular exercise and fitness equipment, are aiming to empower students by highlighting the importance of sport and physical activity for South Africa’s youth.


“We believe that a child’s schooling years are vital for building the foundations of a healthy and active lifestyle into their adult years. Beyond that, sport activity in schools provide a safe space for children to learn what it means to achieve goals and feel part of a team and this is why we are specifically targeting schools,” says Alec Candiotes, Co-Founder of Cactic Fitness.


Having the best possible equipment for off-field training is a must for teachers and sports team coordinators who need to prepare and train learners to be at their best. Cactic Fitness equipment is designed to be multi-disciplinary which makes an ideal product for schools looking to cater for entire sports teams. The equipment can be customised to accommodate any sport specific needs and best of all is priced at a level that would fit any school budget. In this way, Cactic Fitness is playing their part in narrowing the gap between elite private schools and public schools that are often faced with immense budgetary restrictions.


“Our products provide great value for money and this means that schools with smaller budgets do not need to be excluded from opportunities to provide their teams with the best possible equipment,” says Candiotes. Beyond that, because Cactic’s products are proudly South African and locally produced they are able to keep their prices affordable without compromising on quality.


Why Choose Cactic Fitness Equipment for your school?


  • Our children are our future—understanding and supporting their natural yearning for physical activity will help lead them to a lifetime of happy and healthy living. If children are provided with the means to learn about sport and fitness from the early stages of their development, we will be giving our children a gift that will endure throughout their lives.


  • Among the many benefits of taking part in sport and physical activity at school level are physical fitness, confidence and stronger self-esteem, more energy, better memory, and simply a good feeling about themselves.


  • The Cactic team is as concerned as many parents and teachers about the growing problem of childhood obesity and the lack of exercise in children’s lives. Whether this obesity and inactivity is caused by the popularity of video games or the declining hours of physical education in schools, it is a wake-up call for everyone. Cactic Fitness firmly believes that there are ways of reversing this growing trend and helping our children to enjoy daily exercise.


  • Keeping kids active at school is a superb way to increase learning, focus and even test results. Recent studies have shown that regular participation in physical activity is linked to enhancement of brain function and cognition, thereby positively influencing academic performance.
