Get up and active in April


THIS month, the local community is being urged to get up and active as part of the 2019 Premier’s Active April Health and Fitness Challenge.

Premier’s Active April encourages all Victorians to commit to doing 30 minutes of physical activity a day during the month of April.

As part of the challenge, Greater Shepparton City Council is offering participants a number of incentives to get active including a free pass to the Shepparton Sports Stadium Older Adults Fitness Session, free activities held in parks and reserves throughout Greater Shepparton as part of the Activities in the Park program and 10 free full centre passes to Aquamoves.

Once signed up to active April, participants will need to download a copy of their registration card, print it off and take it with them to redeem at Aquamoves and the stadium.

Local resident, Jill Maude, who is also participating in Premier’s Active April, said the challenge can be a great reminder to be physically active every day.

“My family enjoys participating in the Activities in the Park program so we are looking forward to going along to more of the activities while the weather is still warm,” Jill said.

“We can’t wait to become more familiar with the programs offered at Aquamoves and the Shepparton Sports Stadium by using the free passes.

“And we are keen to give the new exercise equipment at Victoria Park Lake near the All Abilities Playground a try, so this month seems like a good time to start.”
