Everything you need to know about canberra. ONE DESTINATION.

Get ACTIVE: July

Posted on

In these difficult times, it’s never been more important to stay active—both for your physical and mental health.

Thanks to some amazing Canberra businesses we’re making it easy to keep active with virtual + in-person fitness activities!

For the last 6+ months we’ve been hosting HerCanberra’s Get ACTIVE with the support of the ACT Government’s Participation Innovation Fund. It was planned to be an entire year of free fitness activities to not only help you get active but to facilitate social connection.

Well, these times demand we shake things up a bit, so we’ve joined with local fitness providers to offer a range of free virtual fitness activities, plus some in-person activities for gyms that have COVID-safe plans in place.

Before we unveil what’s on offer for June, we’d like to encourage you to support your local fitness industry in a paid capacity, if you can.

So, if you get a taste of an activity you love in our free series, please consider joining in as a paid member in future—it could make a real difference to a business surviving the current COVID-19 crisis.

Before we begin

Please note that by choosing to participate in a class, you do so at your own risk. Take a class that is your level and if at any time you feel a class is beyond your strength, level of skill and overall level of flexibility then only proceed with caution.

If you have an existing injury seek advice from a medical practitioner. If you have any questions with regards to a specific fitness provider’s insurance, please contact them directly, as they are individually responsible as the deliverer of the session.

The instructor may require you to sign a health waiver at the beginning of the session. HerCanberra accepts no liability for any injuries that may occur.

HERE’S WHAT’S ON OFFER FOR JULY

Are you a fitness provider interested in joining the Keep ACTIVE movement?

We’re calling for expressions of interest from those interested in running free virtual or COVID-safe in-person fitness sessions over the next couple of months.

These classes do need to be free for participants, but they offer host businesses a chance to build their community during a time when we’re all looking for connection, and a no-cost form of promotion when you’re kickstarting activity again.

We’ll promote your classes to our readers (there are around 150,000 of them!) and you’ll be playing a valuable role in keeping Canberra bodies and minds healthy.

Simply fill in the Google form below and we’ll do the rest! Still have questions? Simply email hello@hercanberra.com.au.

We can do this, together.
