THE YMCA, in partnership with the Eurobodalla Shire Council “Live Life” project, will continue to offer residents the opportunity to take part in this subsidised exercise program.
“Beat It” is a 10-week program specifically tailored by the Australian Diabetes Council to help people have fun and get active while learning practical things that will help them stay healthy.
Developed for people at all levels of health, weight and fitness, BEAT IT provides fun, safe and supportive exercise classes for people with or at risk of developing diabetes and other chronic lifestyle diseases
“Sometimes when you’re struggling with your weight, or have health complications like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, arthritis or osteoporosis, it can feel difficult to know where to start and how to get active,” said Nancy Casu, a YMCA “Beat It” instructor.
“Beat It is here to help get your health back on track, and is also a fun program for anybody just looking to get active.”
Beat It includes two weekly physical activity sessions based in the pool and some theory based education sessions to help participants learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes. The program is available for anybody looking to get active in a supportive environment.
The classes will take place at the Narooma Pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am.
Classes commence on Tuesday, February 11, and the 10-week program costs $49. Note: classes will also take place at the Moruya and Batemans Bay pools.
Bookings are essential, and can be made by contacting Neil Hummerston at the YMCA on 0418 416 577. Registrations and payments are due by January 17.
