New Manager for ERC

In July we said goodbye to Ben Jordan, ERC’s one and only Centre Manager for the past 15 years.  Ben has taken up a similar role at Murray Leisure Centre which is much closer to his home in Yunderup.

The vacancy gave the Shire of Dardanup an opportunity to restructure the role to incorporate more community-based recreation management as well as overseeing the operations of Eaton Recreation Centre.

We welcome John Kowal to our ERC tribe as the new Manager of Recreation Services. John has over 30 years experience in local government in various roles including managing the local government law enforcement, security, CCTV, bushfire management/control and emergency management. John has also held various other roles in Planning and Development and Corporate and Community Services.

Prior to commencing with the Shire of Dardanup, John was Manager Sport and Recreation with the City of Bunbury where he was involved in the review of the sport and recreation services and the implementation of several of the review recommendations.

In his spare time, John is Captain of the Bunbury Volunteer Fire & Rescue Service where he has been a member for over 36 years.  John’s volunteer service has resulted in him being awarded the National Medal of service and also the Australian Fire Services Medal.



New bikes for Cycling Studio

There was a lot of excitement coupled with “oohs and ahhs” following the recent delivery of 17 brand new Bodybike Connects for our Cycling Studio.   Ok maybe they’re just stationary bikes to a lot of people, but to our tribe of riders they are beautifully designed weapon of mass calorie destruction!

The upgraded Bodybikes take indoor cycling to the next level enabling you to optimize your training, motivating you to reach your goal and realize your full potential.  Each bike is a sophisticated watt cycle with an integrated sensor that measures your performance.

The Bodybike Performance console on the handlebar shows watt output, cadence, heart rate, calorie expenditure and other data giving you immediate and valuable feedback on the intensity of your training effort. It also enables you to take a watt test and reveal your VO2 max.

Even if cycling classes aren’t your thing, feel free to head into the Cycling Studio and warm up/cool down on the Bodybikes – you’ll love the smooth ride and who knows, you might even think about joining in a live or virtual RPM class one of these days.
