Aquamoves is getting involved in all the fun and excitement of Rural Health Week (16th to 22nd May) and is providing demonstrations and information at the Greater Shepparton launch.

Leanne Mulcahy, Manager for Aquamoves, said on Monday 16th May at the Victoria Park Lake’s S-CAPE Regional Skate Park from 10.00 am, Aquamoves staff will be playing their part in motivating others to lead more active lives and to consider new, simple exercise and eating regimes.

“Our Aquamoves instructors will be demonstrating alternative exercise classes including Tai Chi, Boot Scooting and BodyBalance. Other demonstrations are also being held at the launch including multicultural dancing and Life Ball.”

Ms Mulcahy said, “We will have information available on how people can change their lifestyles and tailor their exercise regimes to fit their busy schedules. There will also be plenty of valuable nutritional and health-related information available.”

“As part of the launch, Aquamoves staff will also be getting people involved in the group walk around the Victoria Park Lake. The walk is aimed at promoting to people the need for a healthy and balanced outlook on life,” she said.

Once they have completed their walk, participants will be provided with SPC Ardmona snack packs, fruit and water.

The theme of this year’s Rural Health Week is ‘Learning Today for a Healthier Future’ and the Greater Shepparton focus is on ‘Walking, Fruit and Water’.

“Now’s a great opportunity to get active and healthy; and with winter just around the corner, the indoor facilities at Aquamoves provide a great alternative to having to rug up and face the cooler weather,” Ms Mulcahy added.
