Healthy Sunshine Coast encourages people to be well and stay active.  This council initiative offers you opportunities to participate in a variety of different physical activities, workshops and events to maintain or improve your fitness levels and overall health and well being.  Across the Sunshine Coast you will discover activities which are:

  • free or low cost
  • suitable for all ages and fitness levels
  • great for beginners or people returning to exercise
  • ideal as a 'come & try' introduction
  • available on a casual basis - no memberships or extra fees
  • a good way to socialise and meet new people

How do you Choose To Move?

We've kicked off 2020 with our 'Choose to Move' campaign which offers choices from Aqua to Zumba, Boxing, Circuit to Tai Chi, Pilates and Yoga and more including lifestyle workshops covering health and nutrition and mindfulness courses.   You can choose to exercise at an outdoor session in some very special locations or head indoors for a class in one of the many community halls or smaller community based gyms. There's fast paced group fitness, running and adventure or low impact gentle movement, walking and classes especially for seniors.   View 2020 launch eNewsletter
