Fitness providers wanted for Bundy campaign

BUNDABERG Regional Council is appealing to health and fitness professionals in its quest to foster active lifestyles and community wellbeing.

Council's sport, recreation and venues spokeswoman Lynne Forgan said applications were now open for expressions of interest for physical activity providers to take part in the region-wide 2016 Be Active, Be Alive campaign.

"Be Active, Be Alive is our highly popular, free fitness campaign which is now in its fourth year," Cr Forgan said.

"We need enthusiastic and qualified physical activity providers to come on board with this campaign and hold one hour physical activity sessions."

She said fitness providers should be able to adjust their classes to suit a variety of fitness levels.

"Be Active, Be Alive is for every member of our community whether they are new to exercise or a regular at the gym.

"Instructors are required to have an ABN, public liability insurance and current qualifications."

The 2016 program will commence in February for eight weeks in Council pools and parks across the Bundaberg Region.

Regional fitness providers are encouraged to express their interest in taking part in the campaign by filling out an application form via Council's website before November 20: http://www.bundaberg.qld.gov.au/residents/sport-rec/programs/active

Fitness providers are encouraged to apply early so they don't miss out on this opportunity.

Criteria apply, call the Sport and Recreation team on 1300 883 699 for more information or email sportandrec@bundaberg.qld.gov.au.
