COVID Updates for Victoria
06 September 2020
Stage 4 continues in metro Melbourne for an additional two weeks - to September 28.
For the Melbourne metro area this means...
No change to 'in-person' fitness sessions in the Melbourne metro area will occur until we reach an average daily case rate of 30-50 cases in Metro Melbourne over the previous 14 days (or on September 28, whichever is the latter). At this time, Stage 2, Outdoor PT will be permitted with up to two (2) clients.
For the Regional areas...
No change to 'in-person' fitness sessions in the regional areas will occur until infection rates are <5 new cases (regional average over last 14 days) and 0 cases with an unknown source (regional total last 14 days). At this point, Stage Three, gyms can open but will be heavily restricted.
Note, Outdoor Personal Training sessions in regional areas may be possible from September 13. This is unclear at present.

04 August 2020
Victoria is in a State of Disaster. If you're in a Stage 4 Lockdown area, restrictions are prohibitive.
Stage 4 Restrictions include;
- No more than one hour away from the home per day, per person.
- No more than two people exercising together at a time.
- No further than 5km from home
Keep in mind the reason for these restrictions and understand that the penalties for failing to comply are significant.
If you're in regional Victoria (not in Stage 4 restriction), swimming pools, playgrounds and gyms will be shut, and community sport will also stop. But, up to two people can exercise with a Personal Trainer outdoors.
Our information has been gathered from the DHHS website.
