ANZAC Day Workout

March 8, 2023
3 minute read

As a personal trainer, Anzac Day is an opportunity to honour the sacrifices of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and pay tribute to their bravery and dedication to their countries. One way to do this is by incorporating a special Anzac Day-themed workout into your training sessions with clients.

In this blog post, we'll provide some ideas for creating an Anzac Day workout that is suitable for a variety of fitness levels and can be modified to suit your clients' needs. We'll also discuss the importance of incorporating a warm-up and cool-down into the workout, and offer some tips for honouring the memory of the ANZACs through physical activity.

Why Incorporate an Anzac Day Workout into Your Training Sessions?

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, observed on April 25th each year. It's a time to honour the sacrifices of the ANZACs and all those who have served in the military. By incorporating a special Anzac Day workout into your training sessions, you can pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of the ANZACs and encourage your clients to do the same.

In addition, Anzac Day is a great opportunity to mix up your training routine and provide your clients with a new and challenging workout. A themed workout can also be a fun and motivating way to keep your clients engaged and motivated.

Creating an Anzac Day Workout

Here's an example of an Anzac Day Workout

25min AMRAP

A: Alternating Lunges x 25 (total)

N: Narrow Squats x 25

Z: Zig Zag Shuttle Run x 25m

A: Alternating Lying Hip Thrusts x 25 (total)

C: Crab Walk x 25m

D: Dips x 25m

A: Alternating Arm Plank x 25 (total)

Y: Yes- Push ups!

This workout can be modified to suit your clients' fitness levels and equipment availability. 

For example, if you are using Dumbbells, the “d” can be dumbbell shoulder press, dumbbell bicep curl etc. If you’re using Medicine Balls, the Z could be a Zercher Squat. The A can be “Abdominal Crunch”, “Abdominal Sit Up” etc.

You could also change the time and reps, the reason we use “25” for both is because it symbolises the 25th April.

Honouring the Memory of the ANZACs through Physical Activity

Incorporating a special Anzac Day workout into your training sessions is a great way to honour the memory of the ANZACs and pay tribute to their bravery and dedication. As you lead your clients through the workout, take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices of the ANZACs and all those who have served in the military. Encourage your clients to do the same.

You can also consider incorporating themes or elements related to the ANZACs into your training sessions. For example, you could play music from the era or include quotes or stories about the ANZACs into your training sessions. This can help to create a sense of connection and appreciation for the sacrifices of the ANZACs.

Conclusion
