AirActive gets the Bachelor’s heart racing

It’s never been a more exciting time to work out.

And it’s never been easier thanks to the popularity of activewear (hello Beyonce’s Ivy Park range) and the disruption taking place in the fitness and training industry. Gone are the days of gym memberships laden with tricky T&Cs, egalitarian exercise is the new black thanks to the range of smartphone apps and ventures like Fairfax’s BodyPass and AirActive which will launch in Australia this week.

The virtual marketplace will offer last-minute spots in casual fitness classes in a number of venues from April 6. The no-strings ethos is what drew Bachelor winner and aspiring fitness guru Tim Robards to AirActive.

“It’s a great way for people to try multidisciplinary training like yoga one day and some CrossFit the next,” the chiropractor and personal trainer said.

Robards’ involvement with AirActive sees him further emancipate himself from the “Tim and Anna” brand which he and partner Anna Heinrich established when they ended the reality series as a couple.

The pair are regularly at the centre of separation rumours with both now actively pursuing their own opportunities.

“At the end of the day we are individuals who have similar values, that’s what makes a good relationship,” he said.
