Fitness connection hrs and fitness mat will be available for purchase at a range of Perth venues in a bid to make the city’s fitness scene more accessible to the public.
The new range of venues will include the Royal Albert Dock, the Olympic Park, the Westfield Perth Convention Centre, the Centennial Olympic Park and Perth Arena.
All the venues are to be open from September 1.
“We want to make sure we are providing the best experience for the people that are attending,” Perth City Council’s fitness and wellness manager, Chris Anderson, said.
“It’s going to be an environment that will be a lot more accessible and more welcoming to people.”
It’s not just the venues that will offer a range to choose from, the city is also aiming to create a wider range of options for visitors to choose and get involved with.
The city is currently offering free exercise classes for students to learn the basics of fitness.
“When we talk about accessibility we really mean people walking, people running, people jumping, people using a cane,” Mr Anderson said.
A range of fitness mat options will also be available at Perth’s parks, beaches and waterways.
“A range has been announced for parks.
It’s the same type of type of options that are available in the public park,” Mr Smith said.
The range of mats will be offered in the Perth CBD, as well as the Western Park and the North Shore Park.
“The only thing you have to do to get your mat is walk up to the nearest one, go and get it, and then walk back down to the nearby mat,” Mr Scott said.
Mr Scott said the city was looking to encourage more people to get involved in the sport.
“There’s no reason why you can’t get involved and be a member of the community, be a role model and show people that they can still be a fitness professional,” he said.
In the past month, a new range has gone on sale, and many people are taking part.
“At first we were going to start at $50, but we are just now going to launch the first one at $25, which is pretty amazing,” Mr Brown said.
