Mareeba PCYC’s Health and Wellbeing program is about to recommence and is free for anyone over the age of 18.
Health and Wellbeing is an exercise and nutrition/education program that aims to inform people about the proper procedures when it comes to healthy living.
The program is available for adults over the age of 18, who are receiving support from either their general practitioner for mental and physical health, a clinician in a public or a private health service or a community organisation that specialises in mental and/or physical health conditions.
There are weekly sessions available that are two hours in duration, one hour for education and one hour for exercise.
All activities are delivered by certified health professionals: exercise physiologists and dietitians.
Program Co-ordinator Paul Spooner is excited for the program to be back and is encouraging eligible people to give it a go.
“If you’re on the fence about participating, it’s ok to come down and have a look around,” he said.
“Instead of saying ‘it’s not for me’ come down and familiarise yourself with the staff and the facilities.
“We go through an individual analysis which leads to a personalised program, eventually leading into the group sessions.”
The PCYC Health and Wellbeing program has two sessions that run from 10am to 12pm and 11am to 1pm on Fridays.
For more information about the program and its possible health benefits contact Mr Spooner on 0438 349 736.
