It’s time to get Active Melbourne!

Have you ever sat at your desk and tried to proof read a piece of work you were constructing for hour, only to be told by a passing colleague that you have made an extremely obvious mistake?

There is great truth to the notion that it is extremely advantageous to have a fresh set of eyes proof read your work, whatever your occupation may be. By doing this you can potentially reduce the numbers of mistakes you might have made or even provide you with a different perspective in for presenting the material you have collated.

Alternatively, by getting out from behind your desk and becoming active, you will find when you return to your own desk, that even you can become a fresh set of eyes for your own work. Having taken your eyes away from your computer screen, you will be amazed by the attention to detail your fresh mind can achieve upon your return. It might be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator on your way into or out of the office or as rewarding as participating in a corporate sports series.

The Corporate Challenge  

Want to know the best possible way to spend your lunch break? It has to be the Corporate Challenge, a lunchtime sports competition that provides its participants a selection of fantastic sports in very convenient CBD locations.  Team-based activities are a great way for corporate workers to interact outside the normal office environment, and some examples of the benefits our participants experience include;

Incorporating fun and fitness into your week;

Improved concentration and stress minimisation; and

Building a more cohesive working environment

The current repertoire of sports includes netball, soccer, basketball and lawn bowls. With a strong culture of inclusivity and sportsmanship, the Corporate Challenge has something for everyone.  To register your team visit www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/amcs or alternatively for all enquiries email amcs@ymca.org.au or call us on 9604 8600.

Free yoga and zumba at Fed Square

Yoga and zumba at Federation Square aims to promote exercise during lunchtime as the perfect opportunity to get active. No experience necessary, just bring your enthusiasm down to Federation Square early in the new year. Brief descriptions of the programs include:

Are you ready to party yourself into shape? That’s exactly what the zumba program is all about. An exhilarating, effective, easy to follow, Latin-inspired, calories-burning dance fitness party that is moving millions of people towards joy and health; and

Yoga sessions will place emphasis on safe, thoughtful movements, promoting a sense of kinesthetic awareness. Stretching and postures will focus on controlled breathing aimed to improve key health areas of core strength and flexibility. Take a break from the busyness of city life and incorporate meditation and tranquility into your day.
