Coun­cil pro­gram will help res­i­dents Be Ac­tive

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE sched­ule for Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s pop­u­lar fit­ness pro­gram Be Ac­tive, Be Alive has been re­leased.

The free eight-week pro­gram will be held in parks, pools and open spa­ces through­out the re­gion from Fe­bru­ary 1.

Cr Lynne For­gan said the ini­tia­tive, now in its fourth year, had been ex­tremely pop­u­lar in the past.

“Be Ac­tive, Be Alive is all about pro­mot­ing healthy life­styles and en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to take ad­van­tage of pub­lic fa­cil­i­ties and parks,” Cr For­gan said.

“I’m sure a num­ber of res­i­dents have made health and fit­ness goals for 2016 and this pro­gram could be just the ticket to get them started.”

Cr For­gan said pro­fes­sional fit­ness train­ers would pro­vide a range of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing high in­ten­sity car­dio, low im­pact, yoga and aer­o­bics and aqua aer­o­bics.

“This year we will also be in­tro­duc­ing Stroller Fit­ness classes, which in­clude car­dio, cir­cuit, re­sis­tance and strength train­ing all with a bub and stroller in tow.

“The pro­gram has been de­signed to ap­peal to a wide cross-sec­tion of the com­mu­nity and fit­ness train­ers are able to in­cor­po­rate var­i­ous lev­els of in­ten­sity in to each ses­sion.

“Be Ac­tive, Be Alive has an easy to fol­low ac­tiv­ity guide, which in­cludes ac­tiv­i­ties like Fit­ness for Life, Pump your Heart and Mind and Body.”

The pro­gram is at bund­aberg.qld.gov.au or any Coun­cil Ser­vice Cen­tre.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion in all ac­tiv­i­ties is free how­ever pool fees do ap­ply to aqua aer­o­bics ses­sions.
