Holiday program

Active & Healthy lifestyle

When it comes to getting active, doing is believing. Once people become healthier and more active, they realise all the benefits - sleeping better, feeling better, making friends, maintaining a healthy body weight - and this provides intrinsic motivation to do more.

Active & Healthy Lifestyle Program 2020-21

Physical activity is one of the most important things you CAN do to improve your overall quality of life. The situation created by COVID-19 is unprecedented and the physical, mental and financial impacts are unknown. What we do know however, is that helping one another to stay positive and physically active is even more important now than it's ever been.

The 2020-21 Active & Healthy Lifestyle Program offers affordable activities delivered by qualified and supportive professionals who are there to help you become stronger, healthier and - most importantly - happier.

Partner with us

Active people live longer and live better, so it’s no wonder that we advocate for all residents to move more. Across the Gold Coast, government agencies, not-for-profits and local businesses are all working together to create platforms, programs and social responsibility initiatives to encourage participation in physical activity and sport.

In order to make physical activity a more desirable, accessible and vital part of everyday life on the Gold Coast, we aim to give people opportunities to move more, and support them to do it. We realise that all of us could be more active, which is why our target includes everyone: not just the vital aim of getting inactive people to become active, but also supporting those who already do something to do a bit more.
