This is a joint programme run by Kate Gerber and former Mr Universe and owner of Body Future, Trevor Van Schalkwyk.


1. Healthy and balanced staff

When people are able to maintain a balance in their lives and have equilibrium between the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional, they are better able to control and react positively to the circumstances that they are faced with on a daily basis.

2. Reduced absenteeism

It has been proven that when staff exercise and are healthy they experience less stress, are more motivated with the outcome being higher productivity, less absenteeism, more teamwork.

3. Encouraging top performance

When companies promote health and fitness, they attract and retain top performers, which is essential for business success.

4. Better teamwork

The essence of working as a team is explained and this workshop will equip staff with the necessary skills for dealing with conflict, motivating themselves and others, managing time and stress and learning how to communicate effectively.

The workshop is specifically designed for each company to cover the theory that they need. This can range from Personal Awareness to effective communication to strategy sessions. It is then combined with a physical and mental challenge to promote cross communication and team building.

Clients can choose any combinations of:

  • Goal setting
  • Personal mastery- self awareness, self responsibility
  • Nutrition
  • Food choices
  • The importance of breakfast
  • Eating for energy
  • Exercises for the office
  • Meal preparation for a busy lifestyle
  • Eliminating toxins
  • Lifestyle disease and how to prevent illness
  • Time and Stress Management
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Effective communication
  • Understanding the importance of being a team player
  • Leading a team
  • Workshops take place both in and outdoors and are very creative and participative.

Below is some feedback from past wellness workshops:

“I personally had a fantastic time – told one of my colleagues this morning “ I would not mind doing it once a week” !!!!  - thank you very much, it was insightful and fun”

“Thanks again for a wonderful day, I can’t remember when last I had this much fun, also thanks to Trevor for finally explaining nutrition in a way even us couch potatoes can understand it.”

“Hi Kate, thanks so much to you and Trevor for today's workshop. I really enjoyed the day, learnt a lot and came home with a lot of positive expectations and renewed hopes.”

“Thanks for yesterday, it was really inspiring, feeling great today.”

“Kayak experience- extremely special and great team building exercise. Communication- good points, a lot of self-realisation and good tips for understanding and developing oneself and staff."

“This was one of the best Team Building workshops that I have done I thoroughly enjoyed it and personally, I got to know the team better. I enjoyed the “theory part of it” , the exercises  that we did, made me think that I need to take some time out to think and figure out such things, as I am not one for talking about what I can and cannot do.”

“The day was well balanced (kayaking was of course the major highlight!) – good mix of physical challenges incorporated into the workshop session.  I felt this was a good platform/introduction to our strategy coming up, creating a platform that reminds us of the strengths of the team that we can utilise within our own departments.”

“Thanks Kate, it was really great fun, and did wonders for the internal relationships too.”
