Banksia Beach Fitness Classes

Posted on 14.10.2021 in Inspiration , KOMPAN , Media

To celebrate the opening of the new outdoor fitness park at Banksia Beach, free group fitness classes will be hosted for the community.

In collaboration with Moreton Bay Regional Council, the State Government, local fitness leader All-Inclusive Fitness and Urban Play, the 45-min group fitness class is a great way for the local community to learn how to use the outdoor gym equipment at Banksia Beach Park and get fit for summer.

Mayor Peter Flannery said this $300,000 project was made possible thanks to COVID stimulus funding from the State Government.

“If you’ve ever wanted to work out but didn’t want to be locked into a lengthy gym contract then this brand-new fitness park in the heart of the Banksia Beach foreshore is perfect for you,” he said.

“The great thing about these state-of-the-art facilities at Solander Esplanade is that they’re free to use all year round and they’re designed for every level of fitness and age group.

“I’d like to thank the State Government who made this project possible by contributing a significant amount of the total value through its COVID stimulus program.”

Councillor Brooke Savige said this was one of many outdoor fitness parks that are being installed in the Bribie Island and surrounds area this financial year as a direct response to calls from the community.

“Our residents have told us they want more recreational facilities to keep fit and healthy and this shows that we’re not only listening but we’re delivering,” she said.

“It’s no secret that an active community is a happy and healthy community, so this amazing new fitness park will be a huge boost for Banksia Beach and surrounding suburbs.

“I encourage all residents to come down to one of the three free boot camp sessions to familiarise yourself with the equipment and have a blast while doing it!”

The outdoor gym was designed with the whole community in mind and uses inclusive and intergenerational fitness equipment that caters to all ages and fitness levels. The equipment in the park is supported by a digital app that has demonstration videos, workout routines and alternative exercises, so that everyone can get an intense workout – no matter the fitness level!

“Residents don’t need a gym membership when Council creates parks of this calibre in their region. You can do a HIIT workout, weights workout, agility & strength workout, full-body weight workout, the list is endless!” said fitness space designer Nikita Burns.

“The difference with this fitness equipment compared to ones you see in most council fitness parks, is that it mimics commercial gym equipment by providing scalable user positions and adjustable resistance. It continues to provide a physiological challenge – even as you get fitter!” said Ms. Burns.

The group fitness classes will be held for three consecutive Saturdays starting on the 16th October. Starting at 7am and finishing at 7.45am.
