Get dad into fitness this Father's Day


If you're not sure what to get Dad this Father's day why not get Dad into fitness. Not only will he feel better for it, but those happy endorphins will be a welcome side-effect. To make sure Dad gets into fitness with a workout that fits his busy schedule we have put together a range of at home workouts that Dad can do to suit his lifestyle. 


The Quick Workout

28 by Sam Wood is one of the most popular at-home health and fitness programs in Australia, with their speedy 28-minute workout and options for all fitness levels, abilities, and stages of life. Sam is also hosting FREE live workouts via the public Facebook page at 9am AEST each weekday. 


The Family Workout

Beth Borowsky is the founder of The Karma Class and is a leading expert in working with schools to create programs that bring calm into the classroom. Using yoga-based movement, breath, and mindfulness, the program promotes calm and good health, and helps to reduce anxiety in kids, teachers, and the family unit. They’ve also recently launched online classes and the basic program is free, with plenty more workouts available for those who would like to challenge themselves further.   


The Portable Personal Trainer 

If you’re someone who needs a little extra motivation and accountability to continue moving your body each day, the Fitbit Coach program could be perfect for you! You will need to pick up a Fitbit from your local Stockland centre first, but once you’ve programmed in your specifics e.g. age, height, and ability, the app will produce a tailored workout program to suit you. It also gives you little prompts of encouragement something we all need from time to time!

The Calming Workout

For those who haven’t tried meditation before and don’t know where to start, why not let the pros guide you through it? Soul Alive is the live-streamed meditation platform by meditation master Luke McLeod and is run three times a week. The classes are also kept live for 24-hours afterward in case you miss them. 


The Athlete’s Workout

The ultimate low-impact, high-energy workout, Barre Attack is a method created by former professional ballet dancer and Pilates instructor Renee Scott. With a focus on toning and improving general health, as well as assisting those who are coming back from injury, the Barre Attack program is also fantastic for athletes who are looking to strengthen their stabilising muscles. It’s live-streamed via Zoom and is certainly a fun way to get fit!


The Mature Workout


Focusing on the mature age group of 50+, Community Moves is a studio run by Exercise Scientist Van Marinos who specialises in training people in the later years of life. These online, low-impact, functional workouts focus on weight-bearing resistance training that help to improve balance, coordination, and strengthening bones, but most importantly, they’re all about community and connection!
