PCYC Queensland has launched a new online fitness and workout program called, Active8 which members can access from the comfort of their own homes.
The Active8 program was devised by PCYC Queensland fitness professionals and includes high intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, nutritional advice, exercise tips, healthy recipes and more, delivered online via weekly emails.
The program is completely free and is available for the entire community to sign up and keep fit and healthy at home.
Mareeba PCYC Branch Manager Mary-Anne West is encouraging people to get involved in the program.
“It’s a great way to stay healthy and fit while stuck at home,” she said.
“It’s an easy program to follow and is loads of fun.”
PCYC Queensland CEO Phil Schultz said that due to unprecedented changes in society caused by COVID-19, people’s health and wellbeing and connection to community has become more important than ever.
“The impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on all our lives is extraordinary,” he said.
“During this challenging and isolating time, Activ8 @home provides an essential way for the community to remain connected, fit and healthy.
“For this reason, PCYC Queensland has made the program free and available to the entire community and people are already positively supporting and interacting with one another which is great,” he said.
More than 1,100 members have already joined the Active8 program from across Queensland.
