The CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program) 6 Week Fitness Program delivered in collaboration with ACH has finished. However, it looks to be an inspirational beginning as well.
All of the seniors were happy and social throughout the program.
At the beginning of the program, participants underwent a pre-fitness assessment and set some goals.
We are pleased to report that those who attended the workouts regularly reached their goals!
The regular participants who came every week built a strong connection with each other and offer each other encouragement.
The lesson learned is that when it comes to fitness and well-being: consistency is everything!
We look forward to supporting our seniors into the future with their fitness and well-being goals.
Last week the SGP (Settlement Grant Program) Youth Group had the opportunity to shake things up at Fernwood with a Zumba session!
The session had been organised as part of the holiday program, for the girls to have some fun as well as to introduce and familiarise the newly arrived girls with a gym environment.
Almost 30 girls, coming from different backgrounds, attended – and every single one enjoyed it. For some it was their first time doing Zumba. The Instructor was incredibly energetic and afterwards everyone was feeling the benefits of a good workout.
The visit to Fernwood included the Zumba session as well as a tour of the facilities and information about membership options. The staff were very cooperative and patient.
The girls are keen for future fitness sessions and some are looking into taking out their own gym memberships.
