New Active Living Free Fitness Program
There are now even more fun ways to get active, with the release of the new Active Living free fitness program.
The new program will take effect from next Monday, May 6. Utilising outdoor exercise space along Cairns' stunning Esplanade, the Active Living Program aims to get people moving with fun, friendly and free fitness sessions.
Among the new additions to the program is Bokwa – the distant cousin of the popular Zumba workout.
"Bokwa is based on drawing letters and numbers with your feet to music," Division 5 Councillor Richie Bates said.
"It offers our Zumba participants the chance to challenge themselves with some new moves and, of course, it's a lot of fun."
Tai Chi will make a return to the program, offering a relaxing yet energising start to Wednesday mornings.
For those after something a little more challenging, the Body Strong and Circuit Cross Training classes can cater to individual fitness levels and offer full-body workouts.
These new classes will be added to existing activities Zumba, Aqua-aerobics, BoxinFun, Bouldering, Beach Volleyball, Yoga, Mumbalates, Pilates and the Heart Foundation Walking Group.
"We wanted to provide more variety – more opportunities for people to try something new," Cr Bates said.
"We've got a good mix of activities – it might sound cliché, but there really is something for everyone.
"The Active Living program is part of Council's strategy to build community wellbeing – incorporating physical activity combined with social interaction that promotes healthy lifestyle and boosts self-confidence."
All classes are entry-level and encourage participants to go on to explore fitness options best suited to their lifestyle.
Residents and visitors of all ages are invited to join in the free Acting Living classes.
