Warm winter workouts

31 May 2019

Nurture your wellbeing in the warmth of our recreation centres this winter, where you can enjoy a wide range of facilities and programs.

From heated pools and kids’ activities to group fitness classes and gymnasiums, there’s something for all ages and fitness levels. Here are our trainers’ six top tips to stay active during the cooler months.

1. Buddy up
Exercise with a friend or book some sessions with a personal trainer to stay motivated when it’s cold outside.

2. Splash around
Head to your local heated pool to swim, try water aerobics, or even just walk or run laps in the water. Then bliss out in the spa or sauna.

3. Swim safe
Enrol your child in vital swimming lessons during winter to make sure they are safe around water in summer.

4. Spin out
Love to cycle, but want to avoid the cold and rain? Spin classes are a great way to improve your cycling fitness indoors.

5. Mix it up
Winter is a great time to experiment with your workout. So try out a new group fitness class like Adrenaline, Half Hour Power or The Pace.

6. Join a team
Almost every sport can be played indoors, so get a team together and check out your local stadiums at our Carlton and North Melbourne facilities.
