Free fitness, no excuses

GLADSTONE region residents are being given the opportunity to fine-tune their fitness regime beginning this week.

And it will all begin at Gladstone Regional Council’s newly installed outdoor fitness stations courtesy of a series of free demonstrations throughout the region.

Personal trainer Rebecca Josey, from Perfect Fit Training Solutions, will host a free session at each of the council’s 11 fitness station locations.

Throughout August and September Ms Josey will show residents how to use the outdoor fitness stations, demonstrate how to use the equipment to create worthwhile exercise sessions.

The free one-hour sessions begin on Monday from 9.30am at the Canoe Point Wetlands in Tannum Sands and will be rolled out across locations in Gladstone, Boyne Island, Calliope, Miriam Vale and Agnes Water.

Other session details include: Tuesday – Garnet Park, Tannum Sands from 4pm; Wednesday – Lions Park, Gladstone from 4pm; Friday – Lions Park, Boyne Island from 9.30am; Tuesday, August 31 – Gladstone Family Fun and Fitness Area, Happy Valley Park, from 9.30am; Thursday, September 2 – Emmadale Park, Gladstone from 9.30am; Friday, September 3 – Bunting Park, Calliope from 9.30am; and Saturday, September 4 – Tranquillity Walkway, Miriam Vale from 7am and Heritage Walkway, Agnes Water/Seventeen Seventy from 9.30am.

Ms Josey will present her final demonstration session on Sunday, September 5 at the soon-to-be opened bouldering wall in Memorial Park, Gladstone, from 9.30am. The fitness stations have been funded under the Healthy Active Gladstone Region strategy, using the $600,000 prize money won last year in the Healthy Queensland Awards.

Catering for all ages from five years and up, the Supreme X and Health beat systems have proved popular. For more information on council’s Healthy Active Gladstone Region initiative visit www.gladstonerc.qld.gov.au/healthyactive and get active today.
