Mulpha has teamed up with Live Life Get Active to offer the Norwest community free fitness training sessions, the first of many initiatives to foster a sustainable and connected community at Norwest.
The sessions will be held Monday to Friday from 5.30pm to 6.15pm to help Norwest residents and workers to enjoy a workout, connect with new people, and skip the evening peak hour traffic into and out of Norwest.
Mulpha Norwest Executive General Manager, Tim Spencer, said Mulpha is committed to the health and wellbeing of residents, workers and the local community.
“Part of our vision for the transformation of Norwest is to provide an environment which fosters health and wellbeing,” said Mr Spencer.“We wanted to introduce a community initiative that would assist not just physical fitness but mental health and general happiness.
“We are also keen to help people build friendships and a sense of belonging in this growing community, connecting people to nature and their neighbours.
“We want to establish an environment that truly delivers on liveability and productivity.”
Live Life Get Active’s ambassador Jane Flemming said she was thrilled Mulpha was taking part in not only funding the program, but also embracing a holistic wellness philosophy to foster greater health and happiness among the broader Norwest community.
“Getting up and active each day can do so much to improve quality of life by reducing the risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and improving our mental wellbeing,” Jane said.“We sit for so many hours each day, it is vitally important that we take time out.”
Free outdoor fitness camps will be held throughout the week for 45 minutes and include boxing, cross-training and yoga classes for all levels, whether you are a business worker, resident or live locally in Norwest. All you need to do is register, book a session and turn up on the day.
Every person who signs up to the fitness camp also receives a tailored nutrition plan based on the information they have supplied and their personal goals.
As well as health and fitness, Mulpha is investigating a number of initiatives to deliver a highly liveable Smart City at Norwest and create a strong sense of community amongst its residents and workers. These initiatives include transport, culture, health, sustainability and lifelong learning.
