Straight or Neat? A common misconception in the whisky world is the term ‘straight up’; it really means neat.
FitEx, led by Nikki Long, is committed to building a healthier, happier, and stronger State and empowering communities by promoting education, fitness, wellness, and health for all Tasmanians.
Formally the Tasmanian Health & Fitness Expo, FitEx has evolved into being Tasmania’s leading health & fitness expo and now hosts several ongoing community events, projects & initiatives.
FitEx also teams up with local businesses to promote community health and fitness. The most recent collaboration being with Trojan Academy to deliver free self defense workshops, making these skills available to all Tasmanians recovering from the impacts of COVID-19.
FitEx is committed to helping Tasmanians get back on their feet as we all recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and will launch, ‘The Pulse of Tasmania Fitness Calendar’.
The Fitness Calendar is structured to provide Tasmanians with access to a variety of fitness, health and wellness sessions across our State. Sessions are thoughtfully designed to inspire, educate, motivate, equip, and empower Tasmanians of all backgrounds, interests, fitness levels, ages, and abilities.
By facilitating access for all Tasmanians to these free, funded local sessions, FitEx believe individuals, families and businesses in our local communities will be fitter, healthier, happier and thrive.
It is proven that regular, physical exercise can have a profound, positive impact on an individual’s overall health and well-being. Exercise is known to help with depression, anxiety, relive stress, improve memory, boost overall mood, improve sleep quality and has many other long-term health benefits.
The ‘Fitness Calendar, will not only benefit individuals, but it will also showcase several Tasmanian businesses. FitEx embrace the opportunity to give back and help to promote these businesses, who have also been doing it tough this year. FitEx will work alongside fitness professionals and industry leaders to promote the varied ways Tasmanians can continue to move forward, stay active, and achieve all their fitness goals.
The Fitness Calendar launches in February and will run for the entire summer. The calendar will have a minimum of three sessions per week with activities to suit all age groups, fitness levels, interests, and locations across the State.
The activities will include scheduled gym sessions, outdoor bootcamps, running clubs and coaching, martial arts, team sports, ‘come and try’ days, kid’s activities, wellness sessions and nutrition information sessions.
All sessions will be free, and provided by the skilled, knowledgeable and passionate local community health and fitness professionals.
