WHO ARE WE?
The Tally Ho Fitness Group was formed more than 47 years ago by men who had finished their active sporting endeavours, but who still wanted to keep fit.
The Group has about 100 active members.
- Fun: The program is continually varied and stimulating – without any pressure to compete – except with oneself.
- Fitness : Comes from a wide range of activities without elaborate equipment – running, traditional keep fit exercises, light weights, boxercise, swimming – and safe games; indoor soccer, hockey and netball
- Friendship: All members are ‘mates’ and encourage one another
The main gain is not years on your life – but life in your years – and this group is very alive!

WHAT DO WE DO?
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU
We all want to enjoy our lives. We want to look after our partners, family and friends. We can do this better and easier if we are fit.
WHO LEADS US?
It is important that members can make their choice as to the level of intensity and instruction they desire. After our warm-ups,we normally divide the group into three segments, eg: running, jogging and light exercise/walking.
A number of Tally Ho Fitness Group members have received specialised training in leadership and exercise. A team of four members lead the exercise programs twice in each month.
External instructors are used on a regular or guest basis to provide additional instruction in specialised areas. These instructors may come to Wesley Games Hall or we may visit their premises. Variety is the spice of our life.
Wesley College, Glen Waverly Campus has an excellent 25m pool adjacent to their Games Hall.
This pool is normally available for swimming laps between 8:30am and 9.00am after our morning workout.
From time to time the opportunity may arise for our use of the full pool as part of our morning workout.
Our boxercise workouts are based on the training concepts boxers may use to keep fit.
Workouts can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve working in pairs hitting pads, shadow-boxing, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. The boxercise classes are aimed at men of all ages and fitness standards.
As no class involves the physical hitting of an opponent, it is a fun, challenging and safe workout.
Runners shouldn't be nervous about light weight training, they should be serious about it. A runner with a stronger core, upper body, back and legs is a better one.
We use medicine balls and 3kg, 5kg and 7kg weights for short burst interval training.
You choose the weights that suit you best and the number of repetitions with which you are most comfortable.
There are two mid week cycling groups within which members the Tally Ho Fitness Group may participate.
The Tuesday ride provides a fantastic opportunity to get started. The Thursday ride is better suited for those who wish to ride a little further and a little faster.
The Tuesday and Thursday mornings bike rides are not directly associated activities of Tally Ho Fitness Group Inc.
