The Get Out Get Active program is is a series of programs aimed at encouraging people into physical activity who would be otherwise likely to be inactive.
There are three programs currently on offer, each targeting different groups. Research has shown that these groups would particularly benefit from these types of programs:
- Active Mums – for those with children aged 0-5, wanting to get back into exercise
- Active Women (18-24 years) – for younger women
- Active Teens – for teenagers wanting to get more involved in exercise
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)
A new program, to start next year, aims to provide young women between 18 and 24 access to low-cost activities to help them stay active. Noosa Council received a $10,040 grant from the Queensland Government to fund the Noosa Get Out Get Active-Active Women (18-24yrs) program.
Active Women ( 18-24yrs) starts in February 2018 and includes: Yoga; Stand Up Paddle Boarding; Gym (weights and cardio); Boxing; Group fitness (Outdoor); Pilates; Kayaking; Martial arts, all at only $5 per class.
To register for up to three activities by no later than 21 January, 2018, and to complete the short registration survey, please visit Your Say Noosa.
The new Active Teens program, to commence in 2018, will offer 13 to 17-year-olds females and males easy access to low-cost activities to help them stay active. Council wants to know what sports Teens want to take part in. All interested 13 to 17 years olds are asked to please visit Your Say Noosa and fill in the survey. Activities could include stand-up paddling, surfing, boxing, mountain biking, yoga or belly dancing. Council will then use the information it collects to tailor the program to suit the needs of Teens.
