063-Physical maintenance on the trail

Show notes

This week we talk to Jacqui Ambrus-Bonazzi from Canberra Fitness Centre about the physical maintenance that we as hikers should be doing each day on the trail to ensure we maintain our fitness and reduce injuries, something that many hikers take for granted at best, or more typically don’t do at all.

Canberra Fitness Centre is a community of motivated people who love to work hard and achieve goals, whilst having fun. They offer Personal training, small group PT, mums with bubs, boxfit, bootcamp, step aerobics, pilates/barre and Chase Athletic. All the trainers make sure they are correcting you where needed so you don’t injure yourself on your journey of creating a healthier you. They’re not about “gotta get your bikini body back” they say, yes that will happen from the changes you’ll make in your life but it’s not their driving factor. If you are looking for a place to train where you won’t be judged on what label of workout clothing you’re wearing or whether your skinny enough or fit enough, then Canberra Fitness Centre is for you!

Jacqui Ambrus-Bonazzi founded Canberra Fitness Centre or better know as PT2U back then in 2009. She is a passionate trainer who holds her Cert 3 and 4 in Fitness, pre and postnatal certification, Studio pilates matwork and ball, band and circle, Thump boxing, Rehab trainer and master rehab trainer as well as having completed a number of additional courses with reputable trainers who she holds a lot of regard.
