Dalby fitness buffs ex­er­cis­ing cre­ativ­ity

Dalby Herald - - SPORT -

DALBY res­i­dents should think out­side the gym when it comes to stay­ing fit and healthy dur­ing the coronaviru­s lock­down.

With cen­tres closed and boot camps can­celled, many fitness buffs have been forced to de­vise new ways to get ex­er­cise.

Phys­i­cal Fix gym owner Hamey Hayl­lor said fitness was more ac­ces­si­ble than never us­ing on­line con­nec­tions and im­pro­vis­ing with equip­ment.

Ms Hayl­lor said rather than sweat­ing in the gym, many clients were now fol­low­ing group ex­er­cises live on Zoom from the com­fort of their liv­ing room.

Phys­i­cal Fix is run­ning 45-minute high-in­ten­sity classes on­line in the morn­ings.

Clients are sup­plied with some gym equip­ment, but many ex­er­cises re­quire only body weight.

Ms Hayl­lor has also cre­ated a Face­book page where she adds one daily work­out for any­one to com­plete and urges peo­ple to post ev­i­dence of their ac­tiv­i­ties.

Dalby woman Sue Bur­rowes has been keep­ing ac­tive in the park, us­ing hand weights to train out­doors with a friend. Ash Peltz and Char­lie Nolan have pulled out the box­ing pads to spar in the back­yard.

Ms Hayl­lor said the lock­down was dif­fi­cult for many peo­ple be­cause it meant ad­just­ing goals or chang­ing fa­mil­iar rou­tines.

To sign up for the Phys­i­cal Fix daily on­line ex­er­cise class, phone 4662 3456.
