Instead of hibernating in front of Netflix and the heater, Junee recreation centre staff have kicked off a program to encourage members to get inside and get active.
With winter finally here, the centre is setting down the challenge for locals to maintain and improve their fitness as well as rewarding their members.
Aneight-week fitness challenge started this week and is just one of the ideas as well as a free movie, a seminar on healthy eatingand a social media challenge.
“Winter is here and we want to help people stay motivated,active and social,” council’scommunity development manager David Koren said.
“The person who attends the most group fitness classes wins a prize.”
For Junee Junction members, the entire program –even the movie night -is free.
Mr Koren said with 24 classes run across a week –it would be tough to win the eight-week challenge but there are other prizes as well.
As part of the program the ever-popular Zumba class will be held at the recreation centre for the first time.Mr Koren said it could potentially become a permanent fixture.
“We’ve got three new group fitness classes, and fitness and aquatic bootcamps,” he said.
“It’s not all health and fitness,it’s about fun.”
Mr Koren said the exact dates of the program would be revealed over the next eight weeks.
