Laid-back Rosewood – it’s time to get active.
Ipswich City Council is running a free low impact fitness class every Monday morning (9.30am) at ANZAC Park, Rosewood, during school terms. It is essentially a bootcamp-style activity which can be tailored to beginners, seniors, mums-with-babies, in fact anyone and everyone. Division 10 Councillor David Pahlke said the free weekly physical activity class at Rosewood (and at other parks in Ipswich throughout the week) was an ideal way to get fit. “Participants are asked to bring a hat, towel and water bottle, everything else is supplied. So come on Rosewood, get off the couch and get active,” he said.

The Heart Foundation has begun a major push to recruit hundreds of walkers in the Ipswich region to help Aussies live more active, healthier lives. Heart Foundation Walking is inviting community members to become volunteer Walk Organisers and establish small groups of walkers in their local area. “These walking groups are perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels, but are especially good for people who aren’t currently active and want to change that. I’d love to see one in Rosewood,” Cr Pahlke said. To join a walking group or start one of your own in your area, visit: http://walking.heartfoundation.org.au or call 13 11 12
