The best places to get fit in Bunbury

By Kevin Kelly

With spring and summer just around the corner, now's the time you might be starting to think about your fitness goals. Luckily for owners of Bunbury real estate, our region has lots of great fitness and leisure facilities. Whether you prefer a team sport, riding solo or just working out at your own pace, you're sure to find something to help you get your sweat on. 

Here are some of the best places to exercise in Bunbury.

Regional Athletics Arena

There's something very pure about running. It's just you and your footsteps – no complications. And what better place is there to run than an athletics track? Bunbury has a $3.6 million, eight-lane running track. It's made from the same MONDO material as the track in the Bird's Nest stadium in China, home of the 2008 Olympics.

The Bunbury Regional Athletics Club also holds regular competition days throughout the athletics season (October to March). Whether you're social or competitive, there will be a race for you. The first day of competition for 2017 is October 11.

Hay Park

The variety on offer at Hay Park is astounding. As Bunbury's primary sporting hub, it has facilities for cricket, Aussie Rules, rugby, soccer and the aforementioned athletics track. But that's not all – there's also a hockey stadium, netball and tennis courts, and a BMX track.

Most of the sports that have facilities there also have clubrooms on-site too. From the standards like football and netball clubs, to more offbeat options like the dog or radio controlled car club, there's no shortage of options for getting involved.

South West Sports Centre

Located within the Hay Park complex, the South West Sports Centre is the premier leisure facility in Bunbury. It's a fitness junkie's heaven – a gym, pool, squash, netball and basketball courts, all in one handy location.

There are also group fitness classes available for those that want their workouts to be social as well as strenuous. Highlights include BodyPump, a barbell-based class designed to give you a full body burn and Sh'Bam, a fun and exciting dance-based workout.

Does Bunbury sound like a place that could keep up with your active lifestyle? If so, give the team at Ray White a buzz to find out more about buying or renting in our area.
