For many reasons you may choose to DIY your fitness journey, well luckily enough our region offers so many opportunities to do just that!
With several free outdoor fitness equipment parks throughout our region and some beautiful walking tracks on offer there are no excuses to dust off and pop those old sneakers on and head out the door. There are more ways to get fit and healthy other than just hitting the gym, take a bike ride, head to the pool for a swim, sign up for a sport (there are so many on offer in our region) or head to Lake Awoonga and row around in a canoe for a couple of hours… imagine the guns you could end up with. Turn off the TV, put down that remote, step outside and get some fresh air… your body and mind will thank you!
