Group Fitness

The City of Vincent recognises that physical activity is a valuable element of a healthy and vibrant community. The City is committed to providing places for people to participate in a wide range of activities that enhance physical health and well-being. On this page, you will find all the information required to gain a permit to run group fitness in a City of Vincent park or reserve. These guidelines do not apply to not for profit or community organisations who are accessing the City of Vincent’s parks.

Why do I need a permit?

Permits are required to allow effective management of reserve usage, and to manage maintenance on reserves. Permits also enable the City to ensure all group fitness sessions occurring on City’s parks meet fitness industry standards. An approved Group Fitness permit ensures:

  • access to suitable parks for training activities;
  • access to floodlights and other amenities as required;
  • notification of any events or maintenance scheduled on the park that may interrupt your sessions and offered alternatives where required; and
  • the City can program tasks such as mowing and irrigation around your booking.

Where multiple reserves are required, a separate Group Fitness Application Form must be submitted for each individual reserve at the time of application.
