HBF Fitness program comes to Mandurah

Mandurah’s HBF members will be able to enjoy free fitness classes when the private health organisation launches it’s HBF Fitness initiative next Wednesday, January 17.

The eight-week program caters for a range of fitness levels from beginners through to experienced enthusiasts, and will be run at both Rushton Park and Kingsley Fairbridge Reserve.

HBF Fitness trainer Max Tamatoa said the sessions burn maximum calories in a minimal amount of time by focusing on short periods of hard work followed by rest.

“The 40-45 minute sessions that we run at HBF are suitable for intermediate or advanced participants looking for a fast and effective workout,” he said.

HBF community engagement operations manager Richard Williams said the courses were designed for the organisation to give something back to its members.

“We created HBF Fitness in 2011 with just one location to give something back to our members and support them to become more active and healthy,” he said.

“Since then we’ve spread to 21 locations across regional and metropolitan WA and now have over 25,000 registrations for the program annually.”

HBF Fitness is free for HBF members, and non HBF members can participate in the whole eight-week fitness program when registering online at a cost of $120.

Participants in most sessions must be aged 15 or over.

People between the ages of 15 and 18 require a parent or guardian to complete the online registration on their behalf.
