Australia's national exercise guidelines outline how much physical activity we need to stay healthy, and suggests a bare minimum of two and a half hours of moderate intensity activity, or one and a half hours of high-intensity activity, per week. But with all fitness institutes closed or slowly re-opening, us Australians may find it a little hard to meet these requirements and keep motivated.
Luckily for those who need a bit of guidance, we’ve pulled together a list of Perth fitness institutes that have pivoted pretty quick to get their studios online, offering streamed workouts and virtual sweat sessions.
If you know any Perth fitness institutes we’ve left off the list, you can let us know on our dedicated business registration page so we can keep this list rolling!
