Lou pumped to get phys­i­cal

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ZUMBA, step and pump lovers can work up a sweat at Lou’s Fit­ness gym which opens in Craiglie to­mor­row.

The new gym is de­signed for fit­ness classes with large mir­rors, air­con­di­tion­ing, a café, a lounge, sur­round sound mu­sic and even an out­door play area for the kids.

Owner and man­ager Louise Pid­geon is thrilled to have ful­filled her life­long dream of op­er­at­ing her own fit­ness gym in the Dou­glas re­gion.

“I’ve been teach­ing fit­ness classes for over 18 years now and I have al­ways wanted to op­er­ate my own place,” she said.

“There are not a lot of places that of­fer fit­ness classes so I re­ally wanted to pro­vide an area where peo­ple can come and ex­er­cise out­side of the gym en­vi­ron­ment, away from the weights, where they can have some fun.”

The gym will of­fer 20 classes a week in­clud­ing step, pump and Zumba and will also of­fer Zumba classes for chil­dren aged be­tween six and 12 years.

“The gym is also avail­able to peo­ple who want to just stop by for a cof­fee or a chat,” she said.

“There is a nice lounge area and cof­fee shop for moth­ers to meet at while the chil­dren play on the out­door play­ground.”

Lou’s Fit­ness opens on Fri­day be­tween 6.30pm and 8.30pm and is lo­cated at 53 Owen St, Craiglie.
