THE second annual Active Nation Day was held on Sunday, September 25 in Rochester.
This saw Jen’s Personal Training partner with Rochester Community House at the Rochester Shire Hall where the space was transformed into a friendly hub of fitness, health and wellbeing.
Samantha from Bellus Studio was on hand to educate people on skincare in the harsh summer environment, and Riverine Gluten Free had some great specials.
Ash from REDHS and Sandra from RCH were there to show everyone the great health and wellbeing classes that both organisations offer.
Darlene Weeks and Roz Keech, both health and wellbeing therapists, provided the crowd with relaxing mini sessions of Bowen and Remedial Massage.
Jenna Carnie from Jen’s Personal Training and Chris from GO-AT Fitness gave mini sessions of their group fitness and boxing classes throughout the day.
Most people were able to do at least one of each of these classes.
Leanne from RCH held yoga sessions, which were popular leading into the launch of the new pilates classes that will be held at RCH from next term.
Jenna then held a half hour taste of a pilates class to finish off the day.
“I want to raise the awareness of what Rochester has to offer the community as far as fitness and health and wellbeing service providers go, there is no need to travel out of town and anyone can access these services,’’ Jenna said.
“We are rapt with how they day went and are already planning what we can do to make next year’s day bigger and better. The pilates will be a valuable asset to our range of health and wellbeing classes already on offer here at community house,’’ RCH coordinator Amanda Logie said.
