Central Coast Go Active 2 Work Day

The Central Coast Local Health District encourage all Central Coast residents, whether you work locally, in Sydney, in Newcastle or elsewhere, to Go Active 2 Work on the third Wednesday of every month … and as often as you can. More workers, more active, more often!

Go Active 2 Work Day aims to encourage and support increased use of active transport (walking, cycling and public transport) for trips to and from work. Active transport offers many benefits to you, your workplace, our region and our planet. Active transport is the healthier and greener choice and in many cases (certainly for short trips), the faster and cheaper choice.

Register here and receive a free 'Go Active' high-visibility backpack cover!* For registering you will also receive a monthly GA2W e-newsletter including a reminder about the next Central Coast Go Active 2 Work Day, the latest news on active transport and chances to win prizes from time to time.

Are you time poor and/or not getting enough physical activity? One of the biggest benefits active transport offers you is the opportunity to fit some, or even all, of the physical activity that you require for good health, into your working week.

Did you know that as an Australian adult you need to put together at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity each week (e.g. 30 mins x 5 days per week) or at least 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity per week (e.g. 15 mins x 5 days per week)? Increasing duration to 300 minutes of moderate or 150 mins of vigorous intensity activity will provide even greater benefits.

TIP: You can achieve this by accumulating your physical activity throughout the day by combining a few shorter sessions of activity of around 10 to 15 minutes each. Making a habit of walking or cycling all or part of the way to work or catching public transport and hopping on and/or off a stop early is a good way to go!

Participation in Central Coast Go Active 2 Work Day is open to all Central Coast over 18s and is totally free.

Make the healthier choice … Go Active 2 Work!
