Be Active Be Alive launches winter program – Bundaberg Now
The Be Active Be Alive winter program will soon begin offering free sporting activities to keep residents across the region moving throughout the cooler months.
The Bundaberg Regional Council initiative starts on June 14 and aims to keep people involved in health and fitness activities and improve their level of fitness.
Council sports and recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Vince Habermann said there would be a range of different activities people could get involved in.
“We have a range of activities including box fit, tai chi, yoga, aerobics, pilates and a new class of people who may not have heard of before, clubbercise,” said Cr Habermann.
“I saw clubbercise in action, it’s basically dancing in the dark with glow sticks and it’s very exciting, and people are having a really good time,”
These programs are run throughout the region for residents of Gin Gin, Childers and Bundaberg.
“These programs are also free and they are not just for Bundaberg,” said Cr Habermann.
“There are a lot of activities and I encourage people to go to the website and download the program to find an activity near them at a suitable time.”
City Fit instructor Denise Williamson said there are activities for everyone in the program that cater to all levels of fitness, including clubbercise.
“Clubbercise is different because it has simple dance combos as well as fight and punch style stuff that provides a bit of toning,” Denise said.
“It gives people a bit of everything, but mostly it’s fun to keep moving because exercise is so important.
“It’s about finding what works for you and this program offers a variety of courses so you can see what works for you and what you like.”
Clubbercise participant Amanda Zielke said there was no pressure in the new classes, with participants simply being encouraged to move as they could.
“I love the fact that there are no rules and if you can’t move like Denise moves you can move your body like that feels good,” she says.
“You feel so good at the end.”
The program is available on the Be Active Be Alive page of the Council’s website where it can also be downloaded and printed.
