A free fitness program at Stockland’s Sovereign Pocket community in Deebing Heights is paying big dividends for locals who have shed a combined 157 kilograms since classes began.
Live Life Get Active provides free weekday training sessions in the park plus helpful education on health and nutrition.
The program at Sovereign Pocket has been running for more than two years with the latest statistics showing attendees have lost a total of 157 kilograms and 102cm of waistline.
Almost 200 members are now registered for the Stockland-sponsored sessions which run from Monday to Friday.
David Laner, Regional Manager at Stockland, said the Sovereign Pocket program had seen strong growth in attendance and membership this year, including dozens of new participants over the past few months.
“We are proud to support Live Life Get Active training camps at Stockland communities throughout Australia to help our residents enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle, and to also meet new people,” Mr Laner said.
“Congratulations to all the Sovereign Pocket participants on the great results they have achieved and keep up the good work for the remainder of the year.”
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 Sovereign Pocket 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 Sovereign Pocket camps,” she said.
Sovereign Pocket classes are held at 9.15am each school day with 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.
