Positive results as Southbank gets active during lunch Image

Get Active Southbank attracted a good crowd to Queensbridge Square last month, as it encouraged locals to use their lunch break as a chance to get some fresh air and exercise.

The initiative, run by Active Melbourne City Sports (AMCS) in conjunction with Southbank Local News and the Yarra River Business Association, held three exercise sessions during June and July.

Active Melbourne City Sports’ Peter O’Rourke said he was encouraged by the events, which were well attended and enjoyed by the participants.

“I was really pleased with the first year event. AMCS will continue to grow the event and continue to provide free community activation events,” Mr O’Rourke said.

He also pointed out that of the participants who responded to the AMCS survey, 100 per cent of people enjoyed the utilisation of lunchtime to engage in physical activity.

“I believe that the biggest barrier to participation comes from a lack of internal promotion and support within the workplace. It takes ownership and leadership from within this environment to drive participation,” he added.
