Lo­cals out­door ex­er­cis­ing en masse

Melville Times - - Street Watch -

THE City of Melville’s Ac­tive in the Park out­door fit­ness classes con­tinue to be a hit, with over 3000 peo­ple at­tend­ing at least one ses­sion dur­ing the 2016-17 sea­son.

In a sign of the pop­u­lar­ity of the free ses­sions, the ini­tia­tive was in­cluded in The Ur­ban List’s top 10 out­door fit­ness classes in Perth.

First launched as Healthy Melville in Novem­ber 2015, in­creas­ing de­mand meant two free fit­ness classes grew to five by Oc­to­ber last year.

Ac­tive in the Park classes in­clude func­tional fit­ness, yoga, Tunes for Tots, PlayFit for kids and Ac­tive Light classes, held in the City’s parks and led by pro­fes­sional fit­ness train­ers from the City’s LeisureFit cen­tres.

The spring/sum­mer timetable con­cludes at the end of March due to weather and light con­di­tions, but PlayFit and Ac­tive Light classes will re­sume in the first week of May and all other classes will re­turn in Oc­to­ber 2017.
