PARC introduces Active Women’s Month!

During March, PARC will be celebrating, supporting and inspiring women to be active! Whatever your situation or ability level we want you to fall in love with exercise and make your health and fitness a priority. 

We want to empower our female members and the broader community to challenge themselves and put their health first. So, we’re hosting a range of seminars to educate and motivate on a range of health and fitness topics: 

 

  • Thursday 11th March, 6.30pm: Women’s Nutrition and challenging your mindset around health & wellbeing 

Join Mel and Mary in an activity based seminar where you can set yourself goals and challenges around nutrition and health and leave with a plan of attack and tips & tricks to succeed!

 

Kim and Erin from the Women’s Spirit Project, which aims to inspire and empower women experiencing disadvantage to transform their lives through fitness, health and wellbeing activities, will join us to talk about the organisation and its inspiring work. 

This promises to be a thought-provoking event where you can learn about this organisation and find out more about the upcoming Frank to Schank Challenge Event Fundraiser in April.

 

  • Thursday 25th March, 6.30pm: Brodie Harper on her active journey in conjunction with This Girl Can week!

We’re supporting the Victorian Government, This Girl Can initiative encouraging more women to give activity a go or return to exercise after a break. Local celebrity and TV host, Brodie Harper, will be joining us to talk about how she got back into exercise after a break.

 

BOOK NOW FOR FREE through the MyPARC app or via our Group Exercise timetable on the website and they’re open to everyone, PARC members and non-members. 

 

It’s International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March and this year the focus is #choosetochallenge so why not think about how you can challenge yourself this month and start a new routine that enables you to get more active? 

We’re also supporting the Victorian Government initiative, This Girl Can Week, that aims to provide opportunities for women to give physical activity a try. From Monday 22nd to Friday 26th March we will be showcasing our beginner classes within our timetable.

PARC loves a challenge and our team is always here to support you every step of the way. We want to celebrate your successes and inspire you to be your best, so get on board and get active this March!

This week is Men’s Health Week, an important time in the year to raise awareness in preventable health issues in men and encourage the early detection and treatment of diseases amongst men and boys. 

With only 27% of men being active enough to stay healthy, it's important to prioritise your health and get movement into your day. 

To help raise awareness for the week, we interviewed Mark. One of our very dedicated members of PARC who has gone through his own journey to become active and healthy in his life. We spoke about the start to his health journey, his relationship with the PARC community and why he thinks that men's health is so important.

To read our blog interview with Mark head to the link in our bio.
