While we all benefit from a good workout, those of us on a tight budget often find that little luxuries such as regular fitness classes need to be sacrificed in order to make ends meet. Regretfully, amidst all of life's conflicting duties, our health and wellbeing frequently falls into the 'want' basket, rather than that for 'needs'.
If you love going to the gym but simply can't afford to attend regularly, don't despair. Lulu Lemon, a retailer specialising in fitness fashions and equipment, hold regular free community programs which include classes in yoga, pilates and zumba, and sometimes even lectures relating to health and fitness.
Although Lulu Lemon is an Canadian-based retail chain, it has thirty stores throughout Australia. At the moment, these are situated just in the state capitals. To find out what free events are happening in your local store, simply go to the store locator page and click onto 'see all locations', just above the map. You'll be taken to a page listing all Lulu Lemon stores in Australia. From there, just click onto your closest store, and you'll be able to see what events are coming up. Times and dates vary from store to store. Sometimes there will be a few classes a week and at others, nothing at all.
In a world where not much is totally free of charge, these classes are a real find. One important tip, though, is to arrive early. Understandably, these events are very popular so you don't want to miss out.
