If your goal is to lose weight, get fit, tone up or get stronger during the winter months then there is no more fun way to achieve it than to join Fairfield City Council’s Leisure Centre Boot Camp program at Fairfield Park Obstacle Course.

The days are shorter, the weather colder and the meals heartier, but completing the Boot camp will keep you energetic and warm. 

Council recently built the obstacle course to provide greater opportunity for residents to be healthy and active. 

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the obstacle course is designed to be challenging and exciting for users and the Boot Camp is a great way to use the course.

“Getting fit is more fun in groups and with Fairfield Leisure Centre staff on hand you’ll also be able to get tips on staying fit and healthy such as the best food to eat before and after exercise,” Mayor Carbone said.

The Obstacle Course has more than a dozen elements designed to challenge fitness, strength, balance and concentration, such as a mound with a tyre steps climb designed to test physical strength and all-round fitness, timber sleeper steps, rope climb and a tough timber climb to work on upper strength.

The Boot Camp runs throughout the week with sessions starting at 6am (Tuesday and Friday), 9.30am (Monday and Wednesday) and at 6.30pm (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Each Boot Camp session lasts one hour and prices start from $10 per session with discounts available for multiple bookings. The course adjoins Fairfield Adventure Park, Vine Street Fairfield.
