Fitness First opens its doors for locals to move for mental health
WHAT: Fitness First clubs across the country will open their doors to the public during ‘Moodment Week’, 10-16 October, to support beyondblue and encourage people to get moving to promote good mental health.
People of all ages and fitness levels will have the chance to experience the latest fitness innovations, and can take part in fun-filled fitness activities including freestyle group fitness workshops and nutrition talks, for just a $5 donation to beyondblue.
With nearly 3 million Australians experiencing depression and/or anxiety in any one year,1 and movement being a proven way to improve mood, Fitness First wants to encourage more Australians to value all benefits of fitness; not just being physically fit, but feeling mentally strong.
Michael Cunico, National Fitness Manager at Fitness First says, “Friends, family and work colleagues of any age and fitness level are invited to join in all the activities, challenges and community events during Moodment Week, to build mental strength, and embrace the holistic benefits of fitness.”
Anyone interested in participating in Moodment Week can visit their local Fitness First, or go to www.fitnessfirst.com.au to donate and download their seven day Moodment Week guest pass.
WHEN: Monday 10 – Sunday 16 October, 2016
WHERE: All 67 Fitness First clubs across Australia.
