After another successful edition of the Sons of the West mens health program earlier this year,

Wyndham council, Western Leisure Services and the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation want women to get involved too.

The Daughters of the West – Free Fitness Program begins again next month, the only edition for 2024.

The program provides a series of informative, fun and hands-on workshops for women aimed at improving their health and wellbeing.

Held at Eagle Stadium in Werribee from July 17, the program will run for 10 weeks and provide participants with the tools and knowledge to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing through a series of workshops, presentations and events.

Wyndham mayor Jennie Barrera urged women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to register.

“Each session is approximately two hours, where participants hear from various experts each week on a range of health topics, including nutrition, social inclusion, and mental fitness,” Cr Barrera said.

“Following the educational component of the program, participants engage in various

activities designed to build connection with one another. This is then followed by

exercise sessions at a level tailored to each participants’ ability, ensuring everyone

has the chance to get moving.”

Cr Barrera said the benefits of the program went beyond just health and fitness.

“So often the support of others helps us on our health and wellbeing journey. This

program helps create a sense of community – I encourage those new to Wyndham

and those looking to broaden their support group to join.”
