Point A is a community training warehouse in the Adelaide city for things we’re calling Movement Culture. We have open training most days, plus classes of many different types and one-off workshops. Check out our timetable for an overview. We also offer personal training.
It’s a phrase we made up. It’s an attempt to describe the thread that connects many groups, disciplines, or random people who are on the fringes of ‘sport’ ‘fitness’ and ‘lifestyles’. Movement Cultures are developed, often informally, around physical activities that are undertaken for the pure reason that they are enjoyable and rewarding in and of themselves. We passionately believe society needs Movement Cultures and the concept is largely missing and unrecognised in our experiences both with people and with organisations and government.
Primarily, Movement Cultures are fun. That’s why people start – and that’s the foot in the door to all the other benefits they bring. As a person immerses themselves they will grow with the experiences and find many benefits. At the very least, it’s a great way to get people off their asses and out doing something. Sedentary lifestyles, obesity, poor nutrition, depression, pent up anger, lack of wholesome social interaction and far more are all up for improvement by becoming engaged.
