Lots of ways to get some ex­er­cise

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Drum­ming, wa­ter walk­ing, hip hop and t’ai chi may not be seen as con­ven­tional ex­er­cise op­tions.

But Auck­lan­ders are be­ing en­cour­aged to think out­side the square and try a new ac­tiv­ity this win­ter.

AK Ac­tive’s win­ter places pro­gramme has be­gun and a range of dif­fer­ent classes are on of­fer.

Classes cater for all ages and in­clude drum for fun, three on three bas­ket­ball, touch rugby, mu­sic and move­ment and jin­gles and jives for tod­dlers.

All classes are free and run at re­cre­ation cen­tres in Avon­dale, Grey Lynn, Pon­sonby, Mt Roskill, Wesley, Owairaka, One­hunga and Oranga.

Or­gan­ised by the Auck­land City Coun­cil, SPARC and the YMCA, the pro­gramme aims to get more Auck­lan­ders us­ing any op­por­tu­nity they can to move.

It also aims to pro­vide a greater range of ex­er­cise op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­crease the use of com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.
