Now’s time to get with the program
THE Get Active Program is a statewide initiative that promotes involvement in physical activity and encourages its participants to consider important issues that directly relate to their health and wellbeing.
Get Active aims to engage individuals of all ages, shapes and sizes who are not currently physically active and who may experience barriers to physical activity, such as suffering from a chronic health condition, lack of motivation and having the knowledge about how to get started with an exercise program.
A 10-week program targeting men in the Derwent Valley will be held at Freedom Health & Wellness, starting on Monday from 11.30am.
Each week participants will take part in an exercise component and an education component covering topics specifically related to men’s health and wellbeing.
The benefits of regular physical activity include reductions in the risk of health conditions such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, certain forms of cancer, depression and some injuries.
If you are male and want to improve your general health and wellbeing, improve your balance and coordination, feel, function and sleep better, and spend time with a great bunch of blokes in a fun and supportive environment, this program is for you.
The subsidised cost to participants for the program is $30 for the 10 weeks.
