Training gets Docklanders moving

Training gets Docklanders moving Image

Docklands residents and workers can join a free community fitness training program called Live Life Get Active every weekday morning at 6.30am at Yarra’s Edge.

The community initiative has been running in Docklands for almost two years and has successfully made the local community fitter by cutting down 50cm around the collective waists of 150 members over two years.

Jane Flemming, co-founder and director of Live Life Get Active, said the free training sessions were all about engaging the community with a healthy lifestyle.

“Our philosophy is to make it as easy and convenient as possible to get the local residents moving and be more active,” she said. “People living and working in Docklands all have a very busy lifestyle and we want to make exercise part of their daily routine and it’s great if they can get it done before they go to work.”

The program now has more than 200 members in Docklands and the number is still growing.

People from all age groups and fitness levels are welcome to join through registering on livelifegetactive.com.

“It’s fantastic to see so many people getting involved in Docklands. People get to know their local community and their neighbours through the sessions,” Ms Flemming said. “It’s all about the community and the people.”

The sessions include running, boxing and yoga and Live Life Get Active provides all the equipment so the members simply need to show up to get going.
