Bundaberg Regional Council’s Be Active, Be Alive spring program will kick off from Monday with a number of free fitness activities available for the community.
With activities in Gin Gin, Childers and Bundaberg there is sure to be something for everyone in the program, including a fantastic mix of exercise options such as Yoga, cardio tennis and Boxfit at various times throughout the week.
Council’s Sport and Recreation Spokesperson Cr Vince Habermann said the free eight-week program provided the chance for the community to get active for no cost.
“The Be Active, Be Alive program is a fantastic initiative that provides free classes for community, encouraging people to making classes accessible for everyone,” Cr Habermann said.
“There are a range of different session times available, including morning and evening classes to make sure there is a time for everyone to try an activity they might be interested in.
“We love seeing the community get involved in the Be Active, Be Alive program and look forward to seeing its success once again.”
Free Be Active Be Alive sessions chance to try something new
Melinda Ricciardi from Woodgate BeachFit will be facilitating the gentle stretch sessions in Woodgate which are safe low impact stretching classes designed to increase a range of movement.
Melinda said the Be Active Be Alive program was a great opportunity for those who may not be as involved in fitness programs to try sessions for free.
“I love sharing fitness with those people in the community who attend the Be Active, Be Alive classes who may not regularly attend exercise classes,” Melinda said.
“Seeing the joy it brings to them is great, as well as the social connection it builds within the community.
“While the fitness aspect is important, the social interaction is just as important for people’s mental health, and after our Be Active, Be Alive classes here in Woodgate we go up the road for coffee too.”
