Stay healthy and connected this winter

Enjoy the many and varied activities on the Sunshine Coast.

With the cooler months arriving, now is the perfect time to get out and move, with a range of health and wellbeing activities on offer as part of the Council’s Healthy Sunshine Coast program.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Rosanna Natoli said this was your chance to try a new activity, with more than 50 regular fitness and wellbeing programs available across our Sunshine Coast.

“Healthy Sunshine Coast is an affordable and holistic community health and wellbeing initiative that supports and encourages our community to be healthy, have fun and meet new friends,” Mayor Natoli said.

“Here on the Sunshine Coast, we’re connecting and engaging with our communities to build a better future for everyone.

“The program offers Chair Yoga in Maroochydore, Zumba in Buderim, Mind Fit in Maleny, Outdoor Fitness Circuit in Mudjimba and so much more.”

The aim of the program is to encourage: positive mental health and resilience, regular physical activity, healthy eating, strong social connections and participation across all ages and abilities.

Registration for the program is free, but essential. Once signed up, local residents will be able to attend a range of low-cost health and wellbeing activities around the region, which are either $10 (or $5 with a Health Care/Pensioner card).

Registered participants will receive a regular newsletter with class information, program updates and more.

Residents must ensure they are registered to keep up to date. For more information and to register, visit the Council’s website and search ‘Healthy Sunshine Coast’.
