Re-launch of Get Active in Noosa Program 
 
The Get Active in Noosa program starts its fourth year with a Spring Session launching on Monday 3 September.   Get Active in Noosa (GAIN) consists of a range of physical activities held all over the Shire, from the Hinterland to the Coast.  
 
Noosa Council Recreation Development Officer Wendy Guthrie says, "The aim of the GAIN program is to encourage residents to become more physically active and engaged in community life. The project provides 'tasters' for people to trial a range of physical activity programs in safe and structured environments, with the opportunity to continue the activities independently as part of personal physical activity regimes."
 
Over 2007/08, GAIN will again be split into seasonal sessions with activity timetables changing each season.  The Spring Session (September, October, November) includes the ever popular, Tai Chi, conducted by Ian Cameron every Monday, Thursday and Friday morning at Cooroy, Noosaville and Pomona, respectively.  The ancient art is beneficial for improved balance, flexibility and strength, body posture and is recommended for conditions such as high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, stomach ailments, heart problems and nervousness.
 
Also continuing this year are the Fitness Circuits.  Glenn Trewin of GT Fitness will conduct Fitness Circuits each Monday and Wednesday from 6.30am at Noosaville Lions Park.   Glenn Trewin says, "fitness circuits are the complete cardio, upper and lower body workout, using a range of simple fitness equipment." 
 
"The circuits are suitable for all ages, sizes and levels of fitness.  Exercises are self-paced, which means you can do as many or as little of each as you wish," he explained.
 
During the Spring Session Roger and Lee Newton of Bike On Australia will conduct monthly mountain bike riding excursions, commencing from Noosaville's Lions Park.  "Mountain" refers to the style of bicycle, not the terrain to be traversed.  Bikes are supplied, along with helmets, water and a delicious morning tea for an ideal way to discover Noosa's extensive bicycle networks.   Bookings (5449 5100) are essential for this activity as numbers are limited.
 
Council is also pleased to reintroduce Power Walking to the suite of Get Active in Noosa activities.  Join Noosa's Lazy Runner, Marie Bean, for a brisk walk through one of the National Park tracks, back along the boardwalk to Noosa Main Beach or perhaps up the challenging Viridian Steps.  Marie is a qualified personal trainer and can assist with technique and tips.  Meet at the entrance of Noosa National Park Fridays at 6.30am.
 
A $2 donation is requested for all activities to help keep the program operating.  For more information please contact Noosa Council's Community Development Unit on 5449 5100 or visit the "Ways to Get Active in Noosa" pages on www.noosa.qld.gov.au
