Penrith Physie Wakes Up with Today


Penrith Physical Culture Club have put Glenmore Park on the map, after appearing on the Today Show on Channel 9 last month.

The local club was live streamed on Friday 8th September during the weather forecasts with Tim Davies, from the Glenmore Park Youth and Community Centre where they hold their classes for their Junior Girls on Mondays and Tuesdays. The show was broadcast from 5:30am to 8:30am and they had 40 of their members, including Tiny Tots enjoying the experience.

They entered a Community Sport Competition on The Today Show to win money to help support the fundraising goals of their club. The producer of the program saw their entry and thought that they would be the perfect group to appear on the show.

“All the girls were very excited to be on the show. We really didn’t know what to expect but were prepared to show Australia how Physie develops strong, independent, and confident young women. They were interviewed by Tim Davies, taught him one of their routines, danced and had fun” said Karen Allan of Penrith Physical Culture Club.

“We have twins in the club who also helped Tim with the weather forecast. He spent a lot of time talking to our members and their families who also got involved” she added.

The experience was one that the local group will not forget.

“It was a wonderful experience. I am so proud of the club that we have built, the friendships that have been forged, and the dedication of our members to Penrith Physie. I am so grateful to Channel 9 and the Today Show for giving us this opportunity” Karen reflected.

Penrith Physie will be celebrating 30 years in 2024. They are proud to be a part of the BJP Association, which is the original style of Physical Culture, operating for 130 years providing classes for women and girls across Australia.
