Basketball, badminton and boxing are among the free and low-cost physical activities featured in the Active Wyndham Calendar.
Wyndham council is encouraging residents to take up a sport or exercise class listed on the calendar this winter.
Wyndham’s active city portfolio holder, Cr Peter Maynard, said the calendar included everything from seniors’ exercise classes to women’s-only and men’s-only activities, dance classes and more.
“These activities are tailored for most abilities, experiences and fitness levels, so you’re sure to find something that’s right for you,” Cr Maynard said.
“The Active Wyndham Calendar is also a great opportunity for Wyndham sporting clubs and fitness providers to promote their programs and services directly to the local community.”
Cr Maynard said the calendar was a key part of the new Active Wyndham initiative, which aims to make it easier for Wyndham residents to regularly participate in physical activity.
“Australian physical activity guidelines recommend adults achieve 150 minutes of moderate intensity, or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity physical activity each week however, more than half of all Wyndham adults fail to meet physical activity guidelines,” he said.
“Through Active Wyndham, council will deliver a range of free and low cost programs that help people of all ages and abilities get active – whether that be in public open spaces, at sporting and fitness facilities or at home.”
Weights with Mates sessions, Kids Sports Days, yoga and park runs are also included on the Active Wyndham Calendar, which can be viewed at www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/activewyndhamcalendar
