Narembeen Community Gym Update

Published on Wednesday, 27 May 2020 at 9:03:50 AM

Thank you to the Narembeen Community for working with the Shire regarding the ongoing closure of the Narembeen Community Gym due to current COVID – 19 restrictions.

The State Government regulations that are currently in place for fitness and recreation are:

  • non-contact community sports up to 20 participants
  • outdoor or indoor fitness classes with no shared equipment, up to 20 participants
  • public pools (1 indoor and multiple outdoor) permitted to open under strict rules and up to 20 patrons per pool.

As such the Narembeen Gym has started to see some activity with the delivery of personal training and indoor fitness classes by Kasse from “Move and Nourish”.

It appears as though the major concern with Gyms revolves around the amount of people using equipment and the hygiene implications. The State Government has indicated that Stage 3 of their COVID-19 recovery plan is likely to include restrictions being further relaxed for gyms. As such the Narembeen CRC is preparing for the Narembeen Community Gym to re-open in the coming weeks pending the State Governments decisions.

Work will be undertaken to try and reduce the risks involved with equipment use at the Gym and restrictions will be in place to manage the amount of people in the gym as well.

The Shire of Narembeen is also considering reduced annual gym fees next financial year for returning members to thank everyone for their loyalty during this uncertain period.

If you’re interested in getting fit or having a work out prior to the gym re-opening, we suggest you get in touch with Kasse (put her contact details from her business card) regarding personal training or fitness classes.

You can visit the State Governments website for the roadmap for COVID-19 recovery for more information regarding the easing of restrictions

Please do not hesitate to contact the CRC on 9064 7055 if you have any questions or concerns.
