WHAT'S ON

The Live Life Get Active program is coming to the Eurobodalla

Free, outdoor fitness classes will soon be on offer to encourage the community to keep active, healthy and connected despite these isolating times with COVID restrictions.

Live Life Get Active is a program which will run free yoga and bootcamp classes at Batehaven and Narooma respectively.

The program is perfect for people looking for a kick-start but lacking the time or confidence to join a sports team or gym.

It's supported by Olympian Jane Flemming and delivered by qualified local instructors.

Ms Flemming said the program was professional, fun and friendly.

"It's just right for those beginning or restarting their health journey," she said.

"Best of all it's free - all you have to do is turn up, the rest is covered."

Ms Flemming said more people were using yoga and group exercise class to gain fitness and stay mentally healthy and Live Life Get Active made it easy to get started.

"People enjoy the social aspects of these types of activity. They'll often head off to nearby cafes and other retailers after class, building friendships and building community," she said.

"We find that some of our Live Lifers do go on to join gyms or get involved in organised sports, while others explore new ways to get out and about in the great outdoors."

Coordinator of recreation Mathew Neason said local businesses could partner with council and Live Life Get Active.

"For example, we've got Club Catalina supporting a Monday class at their premises," Mr Neason said.

"The Canberra Raiders have also come on board, helping us deliver the program on the Narooma Foreshore. It's a great example of council and business coming together to deliver for the community."

Classes begin on Wednesday, August 4.

Yoga classes at Corrigans Beach Reserve are at 9.30am on Wednesday and Thursday, and at Club Catalina at 6.30pm on Mondays.

Cross training at Narooma runs at 6.45am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
