New year, new you – improve your health with free (and fun) outdoor fitness classes
We know the feeling all too well – the new year rolls around and before you know it, all of those resolutions to get back on the health train have fallen by the wayside. Don’t beat yourself up! It’s a hard slog to get back into the swing of things, but we’re here to help. Before you fork out for a gym membership, why not take advantage of the Medibank Feel Good Program? If fun, free, low-pressure and outdoor classes sound like your ideal fitness situation, read on.
If you’ve ever wandered around South Bank’s lush parklands during summertime, you’ve probably come across the Medibank Feel Good Program before. The concept is as simple as it is brilliant – anyone and everyone is welcome to participate in a wide range of fitness classes so suit, from low-impact exercises to more high-intensity vibes. The classes are held at various locations around South Bank (and a couple of cheeky spots in The City), so all you have to do is suss the timetable and show up at a class that tickles your fancy. No bookings required!
The Medibank Feel Good Program is built on a number of core classes that have proven to be quite popular in the past. Yoga, pilates and tai chi sessions are making a comeback for all of those keen to stretch it out and keep it chill, while those after something a little more sweaty can go for an energy, ZUMBA or bootcamp option. Mamas can get in on the action with a mums and bubs pilates class, while anyone chasing a cool-down with their warm-up can make a splash at aqua aerobics. This year the program has a hot new addition – say hello to barre, baby! If you haven’t tried it before, you can expect a floorwork fusion of pilates, yoga and dance that is guaranteed to get you feeling strong and flexible.
