PT Shannan to open community gym
AUSTRALIA’S most famous personal trainer, Shannan Ponton, is heading to Kyogle next month.
Best known for his role on The Biggest Loser television series, Shannan will be in town to open the new Kyogle Community Gym on Saturday, July 23.
Kyogle Together’s Mark Trudinger said the gym was an idea that came from the community.
“It is being run by the community, and is for the community,” he said.
“It’s not about people having a ‘perfect’ body, but about people improving their health and their lives – so when we asked Shannan to come all the way to Kyogle to open it, he jumped at the chance.
“He’s a real believer in people doing things for themselves, and Kyogle residents have really done that in making this gym a reality.”
