AS a new mum, it can be hard keeping up with young children, but a new, free pilot exercise program to help local mums reach the suggested target of 300 minutes of exercise per week, was launched in Shepparton today.
The Keeping up with the Kids program is targeted at mothers with ‘kids’ aged under six who live in the Kialla area and will give participants the chance to take part in activities they choose, as well as join in group activities and nutrition sessions.
Greater Shepparton City Council’s Acting Manager Active Living, Anthony Nicolaci encouraged people to get involved in the program.
“Aside from improving physical health and wellbeing, we also want to educate people as to what facilities are available and how you can access them.
“We have identified a range of activities participants might be interested in such as joining a social netball or tennis competition, walking group, beach volleyball, Seven Week Challenge, boot camp or meditation/yoga classes through Aquamoves.
“You will be fully supported by qualified staff and by your peers and all activities will be free.
“If you are interested, I encourage you to get in touch with the team at Aquamoves or join the Keeping up with the Kids Facebook group.”
