Strict two-person limit for public gatherings, including exercise, announced
One-on-one training still safe
PM Scott Morrison, speaking alongside Chief Medical Officer Professor Brendan Murphy, has tonight announced further social distancing measures to help combat the spread of COVID-19, including a limit of two people for all gatherings, including outdoor fitness and boot camps.
According to Professor Murphy, Australians should stay home unless there is need to exercise, or go to work, if it is not possible to work from home. The latest announcement means outdoor boot camps and personal training sessions are limited to one-on-one only, with strict social distancing rules still in place.
In the announcement, PM Scott Morrison said “people are buying sports gear so they can exercise at home”, which was an encouraging sign that people are continuing to exercise for their overall health and mental wellbeing.
As we continue to work together through this changing environment, a unified industry is a strong industry that will survive this difficult period.
Fitness Australia’s message to Australia
Fitness Australia CEO Barrie Elvish tells Australians that it is still safe to exercise outdoors provided social distancing measures were in place.
“Exercise is still safe. The great outdoors is still safe with social distancing in place. Moving your regular training sessions outside will ensure you can still keep your regular routine while protecting yourself during this time,” Mr Elvish said.
Mr Elvish said Personal Trainers (PTs) registered with Fitness Australia hold the scope of practice to deliver outdoor training safely as they adhere to the Outdoor Training Guidelines, which have been updated to include COVID-19 restrictions.
“People are still encouraged to train with their trainer outside. If your trainer is registered with Fitness Australia then they adhere to the relevant guidelines to ensure the safe delivery of outdoor training sessions,” Mr Elvish said.
“Fitness Australia is providing its members, including more than 19,000 personal trainers, comprehensive information to give them every opportunity to run their sessions safely outdoors.”
Fitness Australia provides a range of information on their website fitness.org.au for both PTs and people who are looking to find a registered PT who can deliver outdoor training.
Physical exercise and the vital role it plays in a person’s health and mental wellbeing has never been more important than now – a time of uncertainty, isolation and increased anxiety.
