Ipswich City Council recently launched its Active at Home program, allowing the community to access online physical activity classes such as yoga, Pilates, and boot camp style workouts.
Now we are calling on all personal trainers to get involved.
The response to COVID-19 has hit the fitness industry hard. However, from hardship comes innovation, and there has been a huge response from the Ipswich fitness community thinking outside the box and delivering online workout plans, live streaming workouts and filming workout routines for their clients.
“We want to help spread the word of all these amazing opportunities available to our community and to keep your business top of mind throughout this difficult time,” a council spokesperson said.
Here’s how you can take part:
- Take a photo, create an image or film a short video that advertises your innovative fitness class or program
- Upload to Instagram and be sure to #activeipswich
“We will host all #activeipswich submissions on council’s Active at Home webpage Ipswich.qld.gov.au/activeathome
“We will be running a wide-scale campaign directing the Ipswich community to this page. We want everyone to be able to find a class or personal trainer who suits them.
“Don’t let this opportunity pass you by – upload your class details to Instagram and #activeipswich today.”
The spokesperson said there had been some great fitness initiatives coming from Ipswich small businesses.
“That’s why we are encouraging all Ipswich-based small businesses who are offering the community a ‘virtual’ fitness class, or are able to run one-on-one personal training sessions, or any other unique fitness experiences, to get involved.
“We also want to get the community involved by hashtagging #activeipswich of themselves following along to a class at home, or a post workout selfie, or just generally how people are keeping fit in isolation.”
