Tesch supports health and fitness program

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is encouraging Peninsula residents to take advantage of a health and fitness program that has just returned to Umina.

According to Ms Tesch, locals hoping to get fit for free need look no further than the Live Life Get Active program.

The free program is held at the Umina Recreational Precinct and consists of a trainer guiding participants through circuits, boxing or yoga.

"This program is tailored to suit all ages, genders and abilities with a wide range of activities in which to participate and Term 3 of the program has just commenced," Ms Tesch said.

"I got involved in the circuit training last week and it was amazing to see young mums getting back into shape with their babies resting in their prams or young ones running around in the playground having their own fun, exercising alongside active seniors.

"The program is child friendly and the fantastic location provides a great dual purpose," Ms Tesch said.

The program is funded by Central Coast Council and is held rain, hail or shine.

Ms Tesch said program trainer Ms Lisa Buechel ran the activities and provided homework for participants so they could integrate a healthier lifestyle into their busy schedules.

The program runs during the school term from 9:30 to 10:15 each weekday and can have up to 30 participants.

Registrations for the program are taken online.

Ms Tesch said: "In my experience as a Paralympian, wheelchair basketball player and sailor, I understand just how much an active lifestyle can change not only your physical but also your mental health.

"Live Life Get Active is supporting healthier lifestyles in our community and I encourage everyone to take part in the program so we all live a healthier and happier life," Ms Tesch said.

More information about the program is available at the Live Life Get Active website.
