4 Week Theraband and Bodyweight program
December 6 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pmFree
First responder families, shake up your day and incorporate some lunchtime movement into the next 4 weeks! Get your 30 minutes of activity in the middle of your day and learn about the different modalities of strength and mindfulness that can assist in mood management and wellbeing. This 4 week bodyweight and TheraBand program is run by Fortem’s exercise physiologist, and targets physical health and wellbeing through the use of resistance training. This is a progressive program, so participation in all 4 sessions ensures maximum benefit – of course we understand that being on the front line in the community often comes with a changing schedule, and you are welcome to join in those sessions you can attend. Just bring yourself, a water bottle, and a TheraBand – and join online from the comfort of home.
Sessions run on Mondays at 12pm on the following dates:
- 29 November
- 6 December
- 13 December
- 20 December
This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check out Who We Serve here). Register individually, or with up to one other adult (your partner, family member or someone from your inner circle). Encourage a first responder colleague to register too.
All Fortem Wellbeing Activities are underpinned by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing – a set of practical lifestyle habits which contribute to our overall mental fitness. This model by our partners at The Royal Melbourne Hospital is based on widely researched, effective strategies for improving mental health and wellbeing, and forms the foundation of all Fortem Australia events, programs, and activities.
