Running is a great way to keep fit without too much planning, as Caryn Bean discovered. As a businesswoman and busy mom, Caryn discovered the simplicity of running and hasn’t looked back. “It’s easy to run anywhere and the time taken is at your discretion,” she explains. “It fits perfectly into my schedule.”
Another enjoyable aspect for Caryn is the constant change of scenery and the beauty of the outdoors. It’s not without its hazards though. “Personally, I have to be aware of my knees on the downhills,” she says. “Unfortunately, this may be something I inherited; with a mother who has had both her knees replaced.”
As a runner, BODYTEC has been integral to Caryn’s journey, having initially signed up as a client at the City Bowl studio. “I very quickly saw the amazing results and wanted to be a part of the brand,” Caryn explains with a smile. “In 2013, my husband Digby and I became the owners of BODYTEC Sea Point.” BODYTEC has since helped push Caryn’s endurance – “I definitely feel I’m stronger for it.”
Caryn’s favourite running spots are jogs along the Sea Point promenade, and for something a little more grueling, she recommends the back of Constantia Nek, with a few inclines.
Her biggest tips for newbie runners? “Always wear sunblock and NEVER miss your weekly EMS sessions!”
Caryn is the studio owner of BODYTEC Sea Point.

BODYTEC uses Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to achieve stronger, more intense muscle contractions than a voluntary exertion can achieve alone.
Your personal trainer can control each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity of the various muscle groups on the EMS device according to your individual goals.
During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with each contraction.
