I do new own­ers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

I DO Fit­ness gym in Moss­man has a new owner and a fresh take on keep­ing ev­ery­body of all ages fit and healthy.

Tanya Stephens is the mo­ti­vated new owner and has in­cor­po­rated new classes into the al­ready suc­cess­ful gym for youths, adults and se­niors.

‘‘I have a back­ground in youth man­age­ment and co­or­di­nat­ing pro­grams and I wanted to put to­gether fit­ness and youth with sport,’’ she said.

‘‘We are bring­ing in all youth pro­grams, we have got box­ing, kick­box­ing, Nogi Brazil­lian jiu-jitsu, judo and mixed mar­tial arts, which is a big one that rolls all of those discli­plines into one class.’’

I Do Fit­ness is the only gym north of Cairns which has car­dio equip­ment, a pool and a fully padded dojo and qual­i­fied train­ers for the cour­ses.

An­other new ad­di­tion to I Do Fit­ness is a youth ‘‘chill-out zone’’ for gym mem­bers which has ta­bles and chairs and will soon add free wire­less in­ter­net.

‘‘We will have in-house fit­ness and strength com­pe­ti­tions for the youths, we’ve got a bench-press com­pe­ti­tion coming up and we will or­gan­ise ex­ter­nal or­gan­i­sa­tions to host pro­grams here for the youth and out­side so­cial sport­ing events, like have a game of cricket or footy,’’ Ms Stephens said.

‘‘I be­lieve should start be­ing ac­tive young and keep go­ing through­out to re­duce ill­ness when older, for weight man­age­ment and it teaches them dis­ci­pline, stress re­lief and can be used for a num­ber of things in­clud­ing re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.’’

Mums and Dads can bring their kids aged 10 or older to the youth chill out zone while they train and there are classes for all ages up to se­niors, with free pro­grams and mon­i­tor­ing for gym mem­bers.
