Physical Culture, otherwise known as ‘Physi’, is well placed in the hearts of many Australian girls. With clubs set up in schools or church halls, many of our ladies started out in Physi when they were young girls, whereas other members commenced well into adulthood.
Physical Culture is a great way for women to maintain strength and flexibility. Over the course of a year, you master a choreographed routine placed against music. Like Yoga or Pilates, it is important that all parts of the body are worked – there is a focus on position and timing, and for this reason the routine is split into sections:
- Marching and Deportment
- Floor Drill
- Lunge Group
- Dance (excludes Ladies section)
At the end of the year, normally around November, you have the option to complete at Champion Girl or with your fellow club members at Team Competitions.
Our classes are catered towards women aged 17 years and older competing in either:
- Intermediate / Open Senior; or
- First year / Second year / Advanced ladies sections.
Today the club fosters many past and present champions. Details of winners as well as competition results are found at www.epphysi.com.au.
Sutherland Physical Culture Club is run and managed by Ms Susan Bullock (left). Also photographed below is Mrs Shirley Bullock (right) and Mrs Robynne Seward (centre) from sister club, Concord Wesley (concordphysi.com.au).
We are always looking for new members to join our club. Physical Culture is a great way to keep in shape whilst meeting new people along the way. It doesn’t matter what your skill level is (or even if this is the first time you have heard about ‘Physi’). We would love to meet you! Please contact us to see what it is all about.
