Daily Moves is a joint initiative of the Eastern Adelaide Councils, funded by Sport Australia and coordinated by the City of Unley. 

With a focus on the eastern region of Adelaide, Daily Moves is available to residents over 65 who live in Burnside, Campbelltown, Norwood Payneham & St Peters, Prospect, Walkerville and Unley. 

However, anyone at any age or stage can now join in online to keep fit and have fun.

The Daily Moves team has been busy adapting to social changes over the last few months. For all our older residents staying home under the current restrictions, they have launched a YouTube channel which has new videos every week to help people stay active.

Their YouTube channel features guest trainer workouts, health education webinars, cooking demonstrations and much more.

So if you know your way around a computer and can log in at home, that’s about all you need in order to keep your fitness levels up and to connect with their trainers.

The program can also provide personal sessions with a fitness trainer for everyone who’s comfortable using screen technology. They are offering consultations using Skype or Zoom apps to take participants through stretches, bends and gentle exercise techniques.

It’s very easy to do this and they can explain how to get your home computer set up so all you need to do is click and connect.

The team is releasing new videos every week, created with fitness professionals, allied health businesses, the University of South Australia and not for profit organisations.

Each video is promoted through their regular newsletter and on social media. The videos are free and available to everyone, so people don’t need to be a certain age or live in the areas mentioned to access them.

 The team is also offering a phone app called Go Get Fit, which allows the Daily Moves team to assess how clients are progressing, and they can message them directly to check in and see how they are going.

 People who are not so comfortable with computer and video technology are encouraged to contact the team to find out how Daily Moves can best support them.

 If you haven’t got on board yet, contact the Daily Moves team – Alyssa Hill and Jarrod Gordon – by calling 8372 5177, or emailing dailymoves@unley.sa.gov.au
