Reach your fit­ness goals at Whit­sun­day PCYC

Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

THE Whit­sun­day PCYC has a fully equipped gym to suit the fit­ness goals of new starters, pen­sion­ers or ex­pe­ri­enced gym junkies at an af­ford­able price.

The gym has a range of car­dio equip­ment in­clud­ing tread­mills, spin bikes and row­ing ma­chines, strength build­ing ap­pa­ra­tus and weightlift­ing equip­ment in a com­fort­able, air-con­di­tioned set­ting.

Whit­sun­day PCYC branch man­ager Sergeant John Dickinson said there was enough equip­ment to give people of all fit­ness lev­els a rea­son­able work­out.

“We orig­i­nally setup the gym for low in­come earn­ers and pen­sion­ers who couldn’t af­ford the price of other gyms but wanted to have ac­cess to a fa­cil­ity to im­prove their gen­eral fit­ness and well-be­ing,” he said.

“The gym is ideal for people who may be self-con­scious about go­ing to the gym or who don’t want to be sur­rounded by large crowds when work­ing out.”

Sergeant Dickinson said the PCYC was cur­rently seek­ing out grant fund­ing to up­grade the car­dio equip­ment in the gym. “The PCYC is all about giv­ing people healthy choices and there are a num­ber of group classes avail­able for mem­bers to en­hance their work­out,” he said.

Pi­lates classes are held ev­ery Wed­nes­day and Fri­day, a women’s cir­cuit class is held ev­ery Mon­day and Yoga is avail­able ev­ery Tues­day.

There is also an exclusive Heart Moves pro­gram ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day and an over 50’s so­cial and ex­er­cise group ses­sion held ev­ery Wed­nes­day.

A 12 month Whit­sun­day PCYC mem­ber­ship for adults is $30 and pen­sion­ers $6, with ac­cess to the gym cost­ing $40 per month.

Ca­sual gym mem­ber­ships are avail­able for $7 for cur­rent PCYC mem­bers and $10 for non-mem­bers. All PCYC mem­ber­ships are fully trans­fer­able and valid at any of the 55 PCYC lo­ca­tions through­out Queens­land.
