Gym and fitness classes at PCYC Hervey Bay

Group Fitness

PCYC Queensland offer a wide range of group fitness classes from Zumba, Yoga and Pilates to Circuits, Boxercise and HIIT, to name but a few.  All our instructors are fully qualified, very friendly and ready to make exercising a fun and rewarding part of the day.

Our group fitness classes are for everyone, you don’t have to be super fit to join in and you can work at a pace that suits you.  However, if you are looking for something to challenge you or need to shake up your regular routine we have more intense classes to suit.

Benefits of group fitness include:

  • social interaction
  • motivation
  • structure
  • fun and engaging workouts

Beep Test

The beep test is a multi-stage fitness test used to measure cardiovascular fitness and maximum oxygen uptake. It is commonly used by coaches and trainers to measure athlete fitness, or used as a pre-requisite for police and emergency organisations. The test is also known as the bleep test, pacer test, 20m shuttle run test or Léger test.

Senior Fitness

We have implemented a number of fitness classes for seniors such as Move for Life, Zumba Gold and group classes to improve mobility, muscular conditioning, balance and flexibility. Our seniors fitness programs offer supportive and friendly environments,  great for social interaction and building relationships, as well as achieving fitness goals, and have grown in popularity across many of our clubs.

TeenFit

TeenFit is  a program held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, specifically for teens to be able to workout in the gym or other various parts of the club with qualified exercise trainers and without the need for a parent or supervisor to be present.

MA.T.E.S.

What is M.A.T.E.S.?

Motivated Adults Training and Exercising Safely (M.A.T.E.S.) is an evidence-based activity/exercise program for adults of any age or fitness level.

Why do M.A.T.E.S.?

You can reduce your risk of developing long term conditions such as type 2 diabetes or heart disease, and  improve bone and cardiovascular health by participating in appropriately programmed exercise programs.  Each person in the M.A.T.E.S. group follows an individualized program, but the program is run as a group so participants have the ability to have fun and make friends along the way.

The program will run on both Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9-10am.
