BAYSWATER runner Audrey Tuckey is urging more people to join a fitness program, in a bid to make a “conscious” effort to keep a healthy lifestyle.

Ms Tucker has joined HBF Fitness’ eight-week program held at Houghton Park in Bayswater.

The program caters for beginners, intermediate and advanced fitness levels and is free for HBF members, with a small fee for non members.

Ms Tucker said she started HBF Fitness five years ago at Bishop Road Oval in Midland, before moving to Guildford Grammar School ovals, Lilac Hill and now Bayswater

“I was inspired to join the HBF Fitness program as I wanted to encourage my husband and son to be more active,” she said.

“I have played sports my whole life and the sessions are a good way to maintain my fitness, gain strength and do a fun, regular activity.”

Ms Tucker said she used the sessions to regain strength and fitness after having shoulder surgery last year.

“The program, which incorporates core, strength, endurance and cardio gives me a full workout whilst also helping with my recovery,” she said.

“As you get older you must make a conscious effort to exercise, eat healthily and keep your mind active so that you can enjoy whatever is on your bucket list of retirement and travel.”

HBF Fitness is held on every Wednesday at Houghton Park, Bayswater at 5.30pm and every Saturday at Des Penman Reserve, Nollamara at 7.30am.
