From tennis to swimming, yoga, boxfit, pilates and more, there will be plenty of free fitness classes and activities available throughout the community when the Be Active Be Alive program kicks off next week.
Initiated by Bundaberg Regional Council in 2012, the award-winning free parks and pools program was commenced with the help of State Government funding.
The program continues to be developed and refined under Council's ‘Healthy and Active' charter to provide an inclusive mix of activities across the region's parks, pools, open spaces and participating gyms and halls.
Round 1 of Be Active Be Alive for 2023 begins on Monday 6 February to Friday 31 March.
City Fit's Denise Williamson said this year BABA participants could get fit through dance with an all-new class called Pound Rock.
“We love being able to participate in community events and sharing the group fitness love,” Denise said.
“Pound is the ultimate rock workout that uses ripsticks (like drumsticks), so you can become part of the music.
“Why wouldn't you take part?– It's free, there's something for everyone and it's fun!”
Denise said the City Fit team was excited to return to the Be Active Be Alive program after a massive turnout by community members during 2022.
“Last year was amazing,” she said.
“We glowed our heart out with Clubbercise.
“When it comes to exercise, you have to find something that makes you feel good.
“Then it's for the love and not a chore.”
Sport and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Vince Haberman said BABA was a great opportunity to try something different or kick-start your health and fitness goals for the year.
“What a great time to sign up for BABA and get those New Year's resolutions underway,” he said.
“From swimming, dancing, pilates and more, there is sure to be an activity available to suit every age, skillset and fitness level.”
