“The Ready Set Go! 10-week fit­ness train­ing pro­gram, now in its sec­ond year, was de­signed to en­cour­age health­ier life­styles,” Mr Pas­coe said.

“By pro­vid­ing the com­mu­nity the op­por­tu­nity to train with fel­low com­peti­tors to get ready for the Friendlies Cane2Co­ral fun run un­der the guid­ance and en­cour­age­ment of pro­fes­sional train­ers.”

Ses­sions will be held at the Gayndah YMCA at 6am on Wed­nes­day morn­ings and branch pres­i­dent Dael Gid­dins en­cour­ages peo­ple to have a go.

“Even if you don’t think you want to do the Cane2Co­ral Fun Run we still en­cour­age you to come down and get in­volved,” Mrs Gid­dins said.

Dael Gid­dins It’s not nec­es­sar­ily just about fit­ness for the body but also about fit­ness for the mind and know­ing you can set those chal­lenges that you may not have thought you could be­fore

“Com­ing along to th­ese ses­sions doesn’t mean you have to do the Cane2Co­ral.”

Mrs Gid­dins said the ses­sions were moved from Satur­day morn­ings to Wed­nes­day morn­ings.

“We had Satur­day morn­ing last year and it didn’t seem to suit a lot of peo­ple,” Mrs Gid­dins said.

“We are hop­ing that the Wed­nes­day morn­ing will work out bet­ter.”

Mrs Gid­dins also wants to let peo­ple know that the 10 week pro­gram is de­signed to help peo­ple of all fit­ness lev­els.

“It won’t be a boot camp where we are yelling out or­ders,” Mrs Gid­dins said.

“We have dif­fer­ent lev­els and it will be which­ever one works best for you.”

The pro­gram will also be of im­mense ben­e­fit to peo­ple who are plan­ning to run the Cane2Co­ral.

“It will help with their fit­ness for the ac­tual run on the day,” Mrs Gid­dins said.

“It’s not nec­es­sar­ily just about fit­ness for the body but also about fit­ness for the mind and know­ing you can set those chal­lenges that you may not have thought you could be­fore.”
