A new community fitness initiative, Live Life Get Active, has kicked off in gold medal style, with Australian Olympian Jane Flemming, officially launching a free outdoor fitness camp at Wirraway Park.
Live Life Get Active promotes holistic health and wellbeing by offering a range of free group fitness activities including boxing and yoga—held at 9.30am each weekday.
Participants also gain access to free nutritional plans and can track their progress online.
DHA has collaborated with Live Life Get Active to create this exciting new opportunity for families living in Wirraway to connect with their community and embrace a healthier lifestyle.
‘Live Life Get Active is a social initiative that was established to build a fitter, healthier and happier Australia by encouraging participants to get moving and have fun along the way,’ Ms Flemming said.
‘Community-based programs like Live Life Get Active also play a vital role in combatting social isolation and can significantly boost emotional wellbeing by offering residents more opportunities to interact in a relaxed, friendly environment.’
‘We had 20 people attend the first session at Wirraway, which is a fantastic start. As word spreads we know it will only get bigger and better!’ Ms Flemming said.
DHA Development Manager, Gully Coote, said that the newly opened Wirraway Park was a perfect venue—designed to bring people together in the outdoors, just like this.
‘DHA just launched a $1.6 million community park at Thornton, designed to encourage social inclusion and provide a place where neighbours can get together,’ Mr Coote said.
‘Spaces like Wirraway Park promote health and well-being, and strengthen community connections—we want neighbours to know each other and for kids to play outside again.
‘We are very proud to launch this exciting program in Wirraway and wish all participants well on their journey,’ Mr Coote said.
