We all know that solid dose of 'the good feels' you get after you've done something nice for yourself/your body (like exercise). And throughout the months of October and November, along with a much-needed increase in temperature, you can expect those feelings to increase two-fold.
Thanks to the return of the Medibank Feel Good Program, Brisbane will welcome a series of outdoor fitness classes — and, unlike that fancy new yoga studio in your neighbourhood that smells like acai berries and only serves charcoal tea, these classes are all entirely free.
Ranging from sessions to get your blood pumping (HIIT and Zumba) to classes to get your zen flowing freely (yoga, tai chi), plus aqua classes held at the Boat Pool, the Feel Good Program is an initiative designed to suit any and all fitness levels.
For the first time this year, classes will be held not only at the South Bank Parklands but also in the city at Queens Park on Tuesdays. BYO water bottle, towel and, where required, a yoga mat — the ones provided are subject to availability.
Classes happen every day except Fridays and Sundays, booking isn't required and all run for 45 minutes. Get started early and face the day with a 7am HIIT session, or finish it with pilates from 5.30pm. Either way, it'll have you embracing the warm outdoors and feeling good.
