Let’s get physical with 80s-themed winter fitness


Get those winter bodies moving with a range of free fitness classes coming to the Bundaberg Region as part of Be Active Be Alive.

The first winter program for BABA will have you jumping, running, stretching and getting your best 80s moves grooving when it starts on 22 July.

There will be plenty on offer over six weeks, including yoga, Zumba, aerobics and more at the Bundaberg Multiplex.

Sport and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Helen Blackburn said this year, 80s themed aerobics classes had been added to the program for the very first time.

“It's a fantastic thing to be a part of,” she said.

“It brings a bit of fun to it all and if it is fun, you don't even feel like you are exercising!”

Cr Blackburn said if aerobics wasn't your forte, there was plenty more on offer to help keep you fit and healthy.

“We have 30 activities that people can get involved in,” she said.

“We have had the best winter so it is the perfect time for people to get out there to be active, be alive and get on top of those exercise goals they might have.”

Be Active Be Alive: winter fitness first

Initiated by Bundaberg Regional Council in 2012 and now in its eighth year, Be Active Be Alive provides an inclusive mix of activities across our region's parks, pools and open spaces.

Cr Blackburn said the initiative was one that Council was proud of and she encouraged people to get involved.

“Council wants to support the community in their desire to be fit,” she said.

“We saw such a successful Be Active Be Alive summer program so we felt it was important to try to bring something to the region that would help people during the winter months.

“We hope as many people as possible get involved in these great activities, which not only promote fitness but are also a great way to socialise and make new friends.”
