New Group Exercise Program On Monday May 4 we will be relaunching our exciting new and improved Group Exercise Program. The main feature of the program is that all sessions will be 30 minutes in duration. At the time of writing, we are still finalising the roster, but there will be around 50 sessions a week to choose from. The new structure is perfect for busy people, provides greater variety of class type and caters for both beginners and the experienced. The session structure will change slightly by spending more time on the actual conditioning phase during the sessions and less time warming up and cooling down as was the case with the one hour classes. We will also be using our team of full time Personal Trainers to deliver the sessions, which will allow you to get more personal instruction and follow up, to ensure you get the most out of your training. The old favourites of aqua and spin cycling will remain as well as some new styles outlined below:
Exercise outdoors using our fitness trail obstacle course, including some of the functional training activities we use in our boot camp sessions. The trainers will modify the session to suit all fitness levels.
Boxing As announced previously we will be adding some punching bags to the fitness trail area and offering a boxing only session.

Lifestyle Modification Program
Using our new circuit gym, this has proven very popular with our senior members. Great way to get both strength and cardio benefits.
Reshape is a Federal Government funded lifestyle modification program delivered at Oceana Health & Fitness upon referral from your GP. We are endorsed by the Federal Department of Health & Aging to deliver Reshape and the program is administered by the Australian GP Network.

Learn how to include interval training and specific swimming drills that will provide variety and results.
Using local streets and bush areas. These will only be held during the day until next summer.
Hydro Warm water exercise to assist with increasing joint range of movement and for those needing to rehab an injury.
We believe that this new approach to group training delivers the best possible support to members, which is what makes your Oceana membership such good value for money. The proposed roster will be available on our web site www.ohf.com.au and from reception within the next 2 weeks so keep an eye out for that.
With budgets tightening and people getting worried about the effects of the economic crisis, we are doing our bit by allowing 2 people to train together for the price of one throughout May and June. That applies to all current and new Personal training clients and means that a session can cost under $20 per person. This represents fantastic value. So find a training partner, make an appointment today and you will start seeing results you never thought were possible.

Access Changes You will have noticed that Bunning’s have now opened their new trade depot above Oceana. The one way link road between Electra Place and South Arm highway will also be completed soon, which will also allow us to complete the landscaping that is needed to tidy up our site. We will also be constructing a new ramp and path to this upper section of Electra Place to assist with access for school groups and members who will be able to park in this area once the roadworks are complete. Please ensure that you observe all signage in regards to permitted parking areas.
