First responder families from the Port Macquarie region recently experienced the Hero’s Challenge fitness circuit at BodyFit gym. It was a great way to not only be active and learn some new exercises and techniques, but it also became a team effort when our participants helped and assisted each other with exercises such as shoulder press.
As participants arrived at Body Fit, a new gym in town, it was great to see likeminded first responders coming together. There were lots of new faces, many discussing how Fortem Australia is closing a gap. Participants who were on leave enjoyed being able to engage with colleagues and friends, which followed with a discussion on camaraderie. ‘Camaraderie is missing at work these days so its nice to have activities like this’.
