Redlands Healthy & Active program back by popular demand!

Redlands Healthy & Active is back by popular demand, with a third program of low cost activities kicking off on 16 July, coinciding with Term 3 of the school calendar.

Redland City Mayor said it was great to see the impact the program was having in encouraging residents to try new activities and schedule regular exercise into their busy lives.

“So far more than 1300 people have participated in more than 20 different outdoor activities – with Zumba, Yoga and group fitness among the most popular.

“We’ve had wonderful feedback, with many of those who participated in the first two terms of the group physical activities calling for the program to continue.

“With the Redlands Healthy & Active program supported by state and federal grants for the first two terms, Council is now transitioning to a sustainable model; one that provides low-cost sessions to residents and makes it viable for local health and fitness professionals delivering them,” Cr Williams said.

“QSuper has come on board as a supporter so participants will only contribute a $5 co-payment to each weekly session, well below the market rate. A ten session pass (for the price of nine) will also be available for purchase at the first session or online.

“Providing a $5 saving, the pass presents an incentive to commit to the entire term of sessions. Those leading the classes will also benefit from having a greater guaranteed income ahead of the term.”

Again, a broad range of activities inclusive of all abilities and experience are on offer – most with wet weather contingencies – with online registration through Team App.
