HRI joins forces with 12RND Fitness Newtown

The Heart Research Institute is proud to join forces with 12RND Fitness Newtown to inspire the local community to look after their physical and heart health.

On 28 April 2018, the team at 12RND is celebrating the opening of their latest club in Newtown by donating $5,000 to the Heart Research Institute.

12RND Fitness is the latest fitness concept causing a stir across Australia, with Danny Green as the ambassador. It combines high intensity group workouts with functional strength, conditioning and sports-based cardio activities, to provide the ultimate ‘total body’ workout. The sessions are built around 12 work stations, changed daily – and with a new round starting every 3 minutes, you don’t even need to book in. It incorporates elements of boxing techniques to enhance your workouts, and is suitable for all fitness levels to create a dynamic and enjoyable experience.

Cardiovascular disease is Australia’s, and the world’s biggest killer. Every 12 minutes, someone in Australia dies from cardiovascular disease.

Many of the greatest risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are modifiable – meaning that you can reduce your risk by making lifestyle changes such as having a good diet, maintaining a healthy weight and being physically active.

12RND Fitness' programs are designed by sports professionals and have all the tools to get your nutrition back on track! Their personal trainers and mentors are experienced in helping you transform your life and overcome the daily struggles people face in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Combined with the Heart Research Institute's internationally recognised expertise in preventing cardiovascular disesase, we are looking forward to working together to help the Newtown community keep themselves, and their hearts, healthy. The launch is just the start.
