MBABANE – A team of four Nedbank staff members braved the gruelling and intense challenges as part of the Swazi Warrior Fitness Challenge over the weekend.


Nedbank is the main sponsor of the annual event, with this year’s sponsorship amounting to E35 000. The event, which takes place at Simunye Country Club, attracts hundreds of fitness enthusiasts from all over the country, as well as some from South Africa, Australia and Mozambique.


This year, there we 22 obstacles, five of which were new. These included the ball wall, uneven unders, wall climb, burpee tyre hurdle, uneven overs, tyre flip, see-saw, tyre swing, cargo net climb, monkey bars, balancing bar over pit, kettle-bell run, hades revenge tower, minefield buddy carry, power slide, hammer slide and Thor’s thumb, among others.


Four Nedbank staff members took part in the challenge and they all recommend this challenge for staff in terms of team building.
Happiness Mthethwa: “I was partaking in the Swazi Warrior Fitness Challenge for the second time, as I did it last year. I finished about 18 obstacles in 28 minutes last year and I am happy that even though there were 22 obstacles this time around, I finished in 19 minutes. What helped me the most is the fact I exercise regularly; I jog for 10km every day.”


“The obstacles were very challenging but overall it was an exciting and fun activity. For me, the tyre swing proved more challenging as I spent a good five minutes on it, and another difficult one was the monkey bars obstacle. This is a great team building challenge and would definitely recommend it for staff to partake next year, as it is getting bigger and more exciting.”
