Get Out Get Active Get Out Get Active

The 'Get Out Get Active' is a series of programs aimed at encouraging inactive people to get involved in physical activity. 

There are four programs currently on offer, each targeting different groups. Research has shown that these groups would particularly benefit from these types of programs:

  • Active Women (40+ years)
  • Active Mums – for those with children aged 0-5, wanting to get back into exercise
  • Active Women - for younger women (18-24 years)
  • Active Teens – for teenagers (13 - 17 years) wanting to get more involved in exercise

Active Women (40+ years)

The Get Out Get Active - Active Women (40 + years) program started in April. This is an 8-week program with all sessions at a cost of only $5 per class.

Women can still register during the program by contacting providers directly. The activities include yoga, gym sessions, outdoor group fitness, Pilates and boxing. The Queensland Government provided $10,040 grant to the Noosa Active Women Programs to get women and girls active for life. Council will contribute an additional $4,950 to the program.

See contact details and further information on each program via the YourSay Noosa page. Registrations may be accepted after the program start dates if there is space.

Active Mums

Active Mums Noosa is a program that is designed to get more mums involved in a regular physical activity and increase the number of opportunities in the local community to do this. By joining up, participants get access to all Active Mums classes for $9.95 per week (direct debited fortnightly) at the Noosa Leisure Centre and Noosa Aquatic Centre. Child-friendly classes and crèche available for most classes. To be eligible participants must have a child aged between 0-5 years. For more details on Active Mums classes and memberships please email or call the Noosa Leisure Centre on (07) 5329 6550.

Free Core Foundation Class

A total of 10 free Core Foundation classes are available to all mums (no need to be a member). The Core Foundation Class is strongly recommended for all recent mums or any mum who hasn’t exercised for a while. Classes are specially designed to help mums re-establish their core muscle function after childbirth. This ensures that the pelvic floor, abdominals and glut muscles are strong enough to stabilise the spine and joints before advancing into the program, therefore reducing the chance of injury. It includes both cardio and resistance training in each session and is progressive based on the individual participant’s strength. 

  • Thursdays 9am – 10am
  • Cost: Free (each mum can complete a series of 10 classes once)
  • Noosa Leisure Centre, Wallace Drive, Noosaville
  • Crèche available

Active Women (18-24 years)

The Get Out Get Active - Active Women (18-24 years) program started at the end of February. This is a 12-week program with all sessions at a cost of only $5 per class.

Women can still register during the program by contacting providers directly. The activities include yoga, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, gym sessions and Jiu Jitsu.

The Queensland Government provided $10,040 grant to the Noosa Active Women Programs to get women and girls active for life. Council will contribute an additional $4,950 to the program.

Active Teens

The Noosa Active Teens (13-17 years) Program and timetable was released at the end of February and starts the week of 18th March. This program offers low-cost activities ($5 per session) for teenagers aged 13-17 years in the Noosa Shire for 12 weeks. The activities included in the program are gym sessions, stand up paddle, surfing, mountain biking, boxing, Jiu Jitsu and self-defence and yoga.

For health benefits, young people aged 13 to 17 years should be doing at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity every day. 2016/2017 AUSPLAY Survey results showed only 47.6% of teenagers aged 15 to 17 participated in physical activity at least three times per week – lower than the stats for adults of all ages – and only 24.7% participated seven times per week.

The Queensland Government has provided a $16,500 'Game On Queensland 'grant to Noosa Council through the 'Embracing 2018 Legacy Program' to create a program that fills the gap.
