Expression of Interest – Weekly Fitness Group | Gold Coast
First responder families, join us weekly for a 45 minute workout, followed by a dip in the ocean across the road! This 8 week functional HIIT program has been developed by Fortem Australia fitness professionals, designed to help build cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength and coordination, and of course, mental fitness.
Pending sufficient interest, classes will run weekly from Friday, 1 October.
This is a great way to strengthen family/kinship group bonds, as well as to broaden your social network through connection with other first responder families. Connection is an important part of the path to mental fitness, and can take a protective role in maintaining wellbeing through increased feelings of happiness, security, belonging and self-worth. Being active helps to build resilience and wellbeing, and plays a major role in maintaining mental fitness. It helps us to cope with stress, gives us more energy and confidence, as well as improving mood and quality of sleep. Challenging our minds with new skills, approaches, and information can improve our knowledge and thinking skills, increasing confidence, sense of purpose, and ability to cope with stress.
This activity is free for first responders (check out who we serve here). This class is suitable for all ages and ability levels.
This is a small group activity with limited numbers. Note registration is not confirmed until Fortem sends a confirmation email.
