THEY’RE the Warrnambool club fighting to leave their mark on the world’s grandest aerobics stage.

But for EKB Aerobics and Fitness, the chance to battle for top spot against the most polished nations in the world is nothing new.

EKB coach Emma Bellman takes a mass aerobics class at the Allansford Primary School.

A host of south-west hopefuls jetted off to Vienna, Austria on Friday and coach Emma Bellman said excitement was building for the top-tier event.

“I think nerves are becoming real now, but we’re prepared. The teams look really good,” she said.

“We’ve been doing two routine sessions a week, and then for the rest of the week we do skill, strength and fitness and biometrics. 

“We have a couple of girls based in Geelong and Melbourne and they’ve been travelling down just for the routine stuff. We’re excited.”

EKB will begin their FISAF World Championship campaign in Vienna on October 18.

Prior to their world championship tilt, the club undertook a mass aerobics class at the Allansford Primary School.
