My speech & some images from the day:
In Queensland 65% of adults and 28% of children are overweight or obese which includes 50% of the Fraser Coast being overweight or obese.
Therefore being very passionate about fitness, fun & health I’ve organised today’s ‘Step into Spring’ FITNESS & HEALTH EXPO to raise awareness, promote prevention and help educate about Fitness & Health on the Fraser Coast! Please note: Audience participation is compulsory!
I have written and published a ‘4 Week Program’ which is a Mind, Meal & Exercise Plan that teaches people the tools and skills to apply for a long term happy healthy lifestyle, which will is available at the Zumba stall as I hope to revolutionise the Fraser Coast! I find the Fraser Coast obesity epidemic very serious and am working towards creating a massive community lifestyle overhaul campaign with the help of other like minded professionals!
This event would not be possible without the Awesome support of Karen Chatfield the site manager and the Hervey Bay Council for the Arts who generously gave us one of their open mike days for the event, covered the insurance plus all stall fees have been donated back to them for their support of this fun day.
I would like extend a huge thanks to Katie form Z Club Dance Fitness for kindly providing the use of her awesome sound equipment for the day, plus she will be doing some high energy zumba for us to participate in also!
I would like to thank my ‘Fraser Coast Fitness & Health‘ friends, where are you, hand up ladies, if you have any questions today just ask the girls. We also go for a walk every Wednesday at 6:30am with Cheryl from the Torquay Jetty to the pier return and all are welcome to join us.
A massive thank you to the Amazing team of local businesses have come on board to showcase the high level of professional services, products, skills, tools and knowledge available to all. This will be a huge day of fun with maximum audience participation! There are stalls, performances, talks and demos including and on – Bio-aging, Massage, Foot Reflexology, Crossfit, Gyms, Meditation, Yoga, Face Painting, Zumba, Belly Dancers, Martial Arts, Tennis, Burlesque & Fitness Demos plus heaps more.
We will also be raising funds for Bayside Transformations one of our local Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation non for profit Program, who will be manning the ‘healthy option’ BBQ and they have a stall with more info. I would also like to mention that Climbmax the rock wall here is donating 10% of their profits from today to Bayside so make sure you have a climb! We are a team of passionate individuals and businesses on the Fraser Coast that work together to raise awareness and help others achieve a new way of life and thinking that is healthy, exciting, fun and will make you happy!
Our only competition is laziness, a sedentary lifestyle, poor choices, mental health, fast and junk food plus the television!
