Somerset’s Popular Active Ageing Program Returns

SOMERSET Regional Council is again running its popular Active Ageing program which encourages residents 50 and over to keep active and healthy.

The program will be held between April and June at various locations in Somerset with the support of various qualified instructors.

The free clinics are aimed at preventing and reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

An accredited health professional will supervise the sessions, which are also designed to help improve mobility and performance of daily activities.

The program is structured to include a 30-minute nutritional workshop plus one hour of guided group exercise.

The first four week program will get underway in Kilcoy on Tuesday, 3 April and Fernvale on Wednesday, 4 April.

Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the program was increasing in popularity.

“The initiative not only improves people’s wellbeing, but also provides an outlet to form new friendships and develop new skills,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Council is proud to fully fund this activity in our community as we value the importance of supporting active and healthy lifestyle choices.”

Council has engaged the services of qualified personal trainer, Jayne McKenzie, to deliver the program across Kilcoy, Fernvale, Toogoolawah, Lowood and Esk.
