THE NUNGAS COMMUNITY GYM (then to now)
Updated: Aug 10, 2022
In early 2021, Moorundi ACCHS Ltd opened The Nungas Community Gym to all clients and since have assisted members with programs to help increase better health outcomes. Moorundi are very pleased to be able to provide community with complete access to a fully-equipped gym that has NO membership costs.
Prior to 2021 there were few people who had access to the gym, however now there are 94 registered members! Each member has 24 hour access, every day of the year and the only requirement to sign up is to complete a 715 Health Check at any Moorundi Clinic.
What is a 715 Health Check and why should I get one to use the gym?
A 715 Health Check is a preventative health assessment that is specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, who have a higher risk of developing chronic diseases. Making sure you attend a 715 Health Check every 12 months allows you to detect any changes in your health as early as possible. A 715 Health Check is free and only takes 30 minutes.
2019 vs 2022
The Nungas Gym is now equipped with a great range of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, spin bikes, a range of free weights and cable machines.
What do you receive upon sign up?
- 24/7 access to the gym
- No membership fees
- Free 4 week gym program
- Free Myzone belt (fitness tracker)
One thing members have been asking for is some gym merchandise, and we now have some!
Drink bottles and sweat towels will soon be available for purchase, and when purchasing one your contribution will go towards future gym services/programs.
