FHA Stars


27 October 2021 | Two platforms have come together with one goal: to motivate South Africans to live fitter, healthier lives. The 5 Colour Fitness TV show has partnered with DJ Musique from Durban to encourage South Africa to take on the #5Jive Challenge to create awareness around leading healthier and more active lifestyles.

The show filmed its 7th season at the San Lameer Resort Hotel & Spa on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. The season is packed with effective exercise regimes, valuable fitness and lifestyle coaching advice and lots of fun to get South Africa motivated and moving!

The level of stress among South Africans has shot up by 56% since the start of the pandemic, according to research conducted by Pharma Dynamics earlier this year. DJ Musique and 5 Colour Fitness are encouraging and empowering South Africans to join their movement to manage their stress and lead healthier, happier lifestyles. The #5Jive Dance Challenge, an inspiration fitness dance put together by a local choreographer, Sufyaan Moosa and FHA Fitness Health and Active trainers, adds a fun element to working out. What makes this challenge even more encouraging is that there is a cash prize up for grabs!

#5Jive dance challenge song, named Inhliziyo, has been crafted by local artist DJ Musique and Artchild Africa and provides the perfect inspiration, fit for all South Africans and fit for the dance challenge. CEO of FHA and presenter of the TV show, Berne van Zyl: “There is no better way to empower and inspire South Africa after everything the country has been through. This is our way of showing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We are leading by example, showing that there is hope and that we will come out of this together, stronger.”

The 5 Colour Fitness show will air the first episode of its 7th season, 5 Colour Fitness – A Tropical Adventure, on Monday 1 November 2021. This season of fitness and fun has partnered with the prominent and leading KZN radio station, East Coast Radio. The show invited the breakfast team presenters, Darren, Keri and Sky, to join the movement of this new season. Viewers are in for a fitness show that is ready to empower, inspire and motivate everyone watching.

The research conducted by Pharma Dynamics further indicated that 81% turned to unhealthy food, 20% to alcohol, 18% to cigarettes, 6% to smoking cannabis, and 22% to antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication to help them cope with the stressors of the last few months.

“The 5 Colour Fitness show offers viewers exercises that range from bodyweight training to yoga, stretching and breathing techniques that help you to manage stress and enhance the body, mind and well-being. Each trainer is unique, and so the show provides a range of qualified trainers from life coaches and nutritionists to physiotherapists and biokinetics,” says Van Zyl.

The new season will broadcast from Monday to Sunday at 07h00 and again at 17h00 on SuperSport Variety 4, Channel 209. The show is also available on DStv Catch Up and Showmax, as well as the FHA YouTube channel, where you can view previous seasons and train at your own pace.
