Dalby fitness buffs exercising creativity
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.
