"Let’s face it, Eurobodalla is as good a place as any – and better than most – to get through COVID restrictions. We’ve got the vistas, we’ve got the climate, and we’ve got the wide open spaces" says Eurobodalla Council’s coordinator of recreation Mathew Neason.
"Now we have free outdoor fitness classes to help keep us active, healthy and connected during these isolating times. Live Life Get Active is here, with free yoga and bootcamp classes at Batehaven and Narooma respectively."
"The program is perfect for Eurobodallans looking for a kick-start but lacking the time or confidence to join a sports team or gym." The program is supported by Olympian Jane Flemming and delivered by qualified local instructors. Ms Flemming said the program was professional, fun and friendly, “just right for those beginning or restarting their health journey”.
“Best of all it’s free. All you have to do is turn up, the rest is covered.”
Ms Flemming said more people were using yoga and group exercise class to gain fitness and stay mentally healthy and Live Life Get Active made it easy to get started.
“People enjoy the social aspects of these types of activity. They’ll often head off to nearby cafes and other retailers after class, building friendships and building community,” she said.
“We find that some of our Live Lifers do go on to join gyms or get involved in organised sports, while others explore new ways to get out and about in the great outdoors.”
Eurobodalla Council’s coordinator of recreation Mathew Neason said local businesses could partner with Council and Live Life Get Active.
“For example, we’ve Club Catalina supporting a Monday class at their premises,” Mr Neason said.
“The Canberra Raiders have also come on board, helping us deliver the program on the Narooma Foreshore. It’s a great example of Council and business coming together to deliver for the community.”
Classes begin on Wednesday 4 August. Yoga classes at Corrigans Beach Reserve are at 9.30am on Wednesday and Thursday, and at Club Catalina at 6.30pm on Mondays. Cross training at Narooma runs at 6.45am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
