Thai Chi at Gym

Following a six month trial, on 16 August 2017 Council endorsed the Commercial Fitness Operators Policy.

The objective of the Commercial Fitness Operator Policy is to support suitable commercial fitness activities, whilst ensuring balance with the rights of all community members to access public land.

Things to consider when submitting a commercial fitness booking

Maximum numbers of participants per session at parks and gardens is 20 and at some locations may be lower. Larger participant sessions will be considered on sporting grounds as per the commercial fitness training location guide. Bookings for Lake Weeroona, Rosalind Park. the Eaglehawk Precinct or the Bendigo Botanic Gardens must consider the approved zones for use.

There are 3 types of permits you can apply for:

  1. Annual permit - October to September (12 month period)
  2. Summer permit - October to March (6 month period) or
  3. Casual permit - per use (minimum 3 business days' notice is required)

The City does not provide undercover training areas in the event of inclement weather. This is the responsibility of the operator to cancel the session or seek an alternative indoor venue.

Participant statistics for operators will assist the City to better plan for, develop and enhance public and open spaces, recreation facilities and healthy promotion services into the future.
