Free fitness camps perfect for all activity levels to boost well-being

IF you want to improve your fitness but the idea of going to a gym makes you cringe, then The Live Life Get Active (LLGA) program could be for you.

Free fitness camps along with yoga, boxing and circuit training classes are available in 12 new Western Sydney locations including at Auburn, Lidcombe, Merrylands and South Granville.
The camps are run in partnership with the Western Sydney Diabetes (WSD) Alliance, and the Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN).
WSD administrative officer Katrina Paragalli is a keen advocate of the program, as well as a personal trainer with LLGA at Norwest Marketown, and says the best thing about it is that it’s perfect for all activity levels.
“Some people in my class have never exercised and it’s a great way to start,” she said.
“There’s no judgement and the best thing is the classes are free.
“Exercise is not just great for fitness, but it also improves your mental health and keeps you feeling energised and mobile no matter what age.”
WSPHN Primary Care Development and Integration, acting director Jane Assange, said based on the success of camps initially in Rouse Hill, followed by Mount Druitt and Lidcombe last year, the expansion was possible thanks to funding by WSPHN.
“Our goal is to provide accessible exercise to residents in western Sydney to increase the levels of physical activity and combat the high rates of obesity in the area,” she said.
