A free fitness program at Stockland’s Newport community on the Redcliffe Peninsula is paying big dividends for locals who have shed a combined 105 kilograms since classes began 12 months ago.
Live Life Get Active provides free weekday training sessions in the park plus helpful education on health and nutrition.
The program at Newport commenced in October last year with the latest statistics showing attendees have lost a total of 105 kilograms and an impressive 161cm of waistline.
A total of 175 members are now registered for the Stockland-sponsored sessions which run from Monday to Friday.
David Laner, Regional Manager at Stockland, said the Newport program was launched well in advance of the first residents moving into the community and was proving to be hugely popular with residents in the region.
“We are proud to sponsor Live Life Get Active training camps at many Stockland communities around Australia to encourage our residents to be active and healthy, and to also meet new people,” Mr Laner said.
“Congratulations to all those who have participated in the Stockland Newport classes in the first year,” he said. “We look forward to many more people joining the program as the population of Newport increases in the months and years ahead.”
Live Life Get Active is a private social initiative created to encourage Australians to become fitter, happier and healthier.
Proud ambassador and Olympian and Commonwealth Games champion Jane Flemming said it was fantastic to see the collective weight loss and waistline reduction reported by Newport members.
“This is exactly the type of results we established Live Life Get Active to achieve and I would also like to congratulate everyone involved in the Newport camps,” she said.
Newport classes are currently held at 6:15am each weekday during school terms and feature boxing, cross training or yoga sessions running for 45 minutes.
Anyone interested in attending can register online at www.livelifegetactive.com and then start booking sessions. Participants also receive a free tailored nutrition plan and can track their progress and monitor weight loss and fitness.
Live Life Get Active is suitable for adults of all ages, body shapes and fitness levels and has a ‘go at your own pace’ philosophy to exercise.
