NBN and Fitness: Keeping Australian Fitness Accessible in the Living Room


With many Australians living a fast-paced lifestyle that has become busier than ever, maintaining a fitness routine can be challenging.

According to National Broadband Network (nbn™), time-constrained Australians are now trading their gym memberships for a fast and stable internet connection to help their fitness regime, by utilising the web as a source for workout inspiration via tools and how-to-videos.

A recently held survey found out that 53% of Australians used the internet to improve their exercise and training techniques, to research about nutrition or just track their fitness progress.

Additionally, of people who used the internet for fitness inspiration, almost two-thirds  watched online video tutorials, with about 48% admitting to researching the latest fitness trends.

The nbn™ has been a tremendous help when it comes to providing Australians with their workout regimes, especially those who lack the time to go to the gym or out for a run.

It also proved to be an effective cost-efficient alternative to gym memberships or hiring personal trainers. Thanks to online workout videos, people can now have access to a “trainer” anytime and anywhere.

The numbers back up this claim, as the survey revealed that given the choice, about 62 percent of them prefer to workout at home in their living room, rather than go to a gym. The biggest reason? It’s free and convenient.

With these encouraging numbers, the National Broadband Network have collaborated with a fitness expert, and will show a series of “Virtual Trainer” workout films.

Rural and regional Australians too can get on with the virtual workouts available on the internet with the much improved satellite internet known as Sky Muster™, and with the recently launched second nbn satellite, more areas in the bush can access fitness resources over the internet.

The NBN’s Sky Muster satellite brings better satellite internet connectivity to regional Australia. To get onboard Sky Muster, call Activ8me today 13 22 88 or visit:
