Horsham Rural City Council is partnering with local fitness and wellbeing providers to deliver free sessions at Sawyer Park on Saturday mornings.
Residents young and old can take part in the ACTIVE Horsham Health and Wellbeing Sessions from 9am with registration not required.
The program is scheduled to run every week until November. Instructors from the YMCA will lead the inaugural session this Saturday and Lisa Cosson from Planet Feelgood will host the remaining three dates in March.
Ms Cosson said there would be a diversity of sessions provided across the year.
“The sessions will cater for all abilities and ages. People can show up at 9am each Saturday and it will be on,” she said.
“We know that not everyone in our area currently accesses professional fitness and wellbeing services, so this is a chance for everyone to come and try different classes for free.
“The other bonus is that each local fitness service will have the opportunity to shine as a business offering. Different themes will be rotated through, for example dance clubs and martial arts groups will run the sessions at some stage,” Ms Cosson said.
Council is delivering the program thanks to funding from the Victorian Government’s COVID Safe Outdoor Activation Fund.
