Personal training permits

Council offers a number of parks and venues for the use of personal training and fitness activities. 

Before conducting your personal training session, an application must be submitted to Council. Monetary penalties apply for unauthorised use.

Read the Personal Training Guidelines before submitting an application.  This guideline document has information about the trainers' qualification requirements and locations of the reserve that can and cannot be used for personal training.
