The new Get Active Victoria initiative, includes an online platform with free workout videos, challenges and ideas to get moving at home.
AFLW Demons star Daisy Pearce and Australian cricket captain Meg Lanning have also created online challenges for Get Active Victoria to provide some extra inspiration to get everyone moving.
With 80 per cent of children and more than 50 per cent of adults in Victoria not doing the recommended amount of physical activity, the Victorian Government is ramping up efforts to ensure everyone has the chance to flex their muscles throughout the current Stage 3 and 4 restrictions.
From Afro Dance to a juggling challenge, the Get Active Victoria website provides workouts, challenges and tools to motivate and support Victorian families. There are workouts for all levels that range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes with little or no equipment needed. Participants can focus on strength, cardio, flexibility and other options.
An activity tracker allows participants to monitor how much activity they are doing each day, and teams can also be created online.
New features will be added to the website progressively including challenges created by participants while a mobile app is in the works. Planning is also under way for events that will take Get Active Victoria to the community in 2021 with support from key partners.
Get Active Victoria great way to connect with family and friends, support each other and inspire more Victorians to get moving.
