More than just swan­ning around

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -­mu­ni­ d481903

A GROUP of women are try­ing to en­gage the com­mu­nity to be phys­i­cally and men­tally healthy through free fit­ness ses­sions along the river.

‘For the Ev­ery Woman’ is a con­cept by Bur­swood res­i­dent Jor­dina Quain, Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent Kelsey Atkin­son and Como res­i­dent Darci Miller.

The trio, along with other women, meet at the Bur­swood Park Play­ground on Mon­day, Wed­nes­day and Fri­day at 6.15am for a 6km walk, jog or run along the river.

Ms Quain said the three women hold pub­lic health de­grees and were in­ter­ested in a holis­tic ap­proach to health.

“We have about 10 to 15 par­tic­i­pants who say they wouldn’t nor­mally get out of bed so early to ex­er­cise if there wasn’t a group to meet,” she said.
