2024 is the year to smash your health and fitness goals, with City of Moreton Bay’s Healthy & Active Moreton program sure to get you moving.

The Healthy & Active Moreton program provides the community with hundreds of free or low-cost activities for all fitness levels and abilities across local parks and venues in Moreton Bay.

Mayor Peter Flannery said Council is committed to enhancing the quality of life for its residents by fostering a healthy and active community.

“We want to minimise the barriers to participation which includes making sure there are accessible activities for every body - regardless of age, mobility, fitness level, interest or location,” Mayor Flannery said.

“With roughly 100 activities per week like wheelchair dance and basketball, adaptive skate sessions, online classes, and specialised senior activities there’s something for everyone to come and try.

“The latest Census data revealed that 37.3% of the Moreton Bay population are living with long-term health conditions, a higher rate than in Greater Brisbane (32.8%).

“The good news is that many of our activities can benefit people who are living with these conditions, and they are a great way to keep your body and mind healthy.

“The program aims to improve health and wellbeing by offering affordable sport, recreation and wellness activities that supports and encourages our community to become more active and also develop social connections.

“The popular Healthy and Active initiative continues to feature our all-time favourite classes such as bootcamps, group fitness, yoga, pilates, soccer, dance, surfing, stand up paddling and more.

“And, for those preferring a gentler approach, there’s chair yoga, tai chi, meditation, mindfulness and nutrition workshops.

“All sessions are led by qualified professionals in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment, supporting you every step of the way.

“Jump online today and search the calendar for affordable and enjoyable activities near you and let’s get healthy and active together.
