Pop your joggers on and get moving, Middlemount! Isaac Regional Council will be presenting a special Move It NQ ‘8-week Learn to Jog’ program, commencing on Wednesday, 28 July.
In this free program, local fitness gurus will put participants through their paces with drills, exercises and more with the aim of getting people jogging for longer, or perhaps, for the first time.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said this program is for everybody and no jogging or exercise experience is necessary.
“We’re so excited to partner with Move It NQ to bring this accessible program to the people of Middlemount,” Mayor Baker said.
“What I love about this program is that it’s tailored to each participants fitness level and experience so even if you’ve never jogged before, you’ll be able to keep up.”
The free 8-week program will run every Wednesday from 6.45pm to 7.30pm at the Middlemount Sportsground between Wednesday, 28 July and Wednesday, 15 September. Interested participants can register for the whole program or on a weekly basis, pending availability.
Places are limited so interested participants are encouraged to run to register at speakup.isaac.qld.gov.au/move-it-NQ. Participants must be over 14 years old to take part and those under 18 years will require parental/guardian permission.
Move It NQ is one of the projects of the North Queensland Sports Foundation, aimed at supporting healthier and active lifestyles.
Mayor Baker expressed how grateful Council was to the Foundation for supporting health and fitness in regional Queensland.
“It’s great to see that Move It NQ is committed to providing opportunities for all North Queenslanders to participate in quality physical programming”, Mayor Baker said.
“Council is very grateful to the North Queensland Sports Foundation and the North Queensland Primary Health Network for funding and supporting this initiative”.
