Active in the Park classes will resume for the Spring/Summer outdoor season in October 2020.

The Healthy Melville team are looking forward to getting active with you all again later this year!

Active With a Bark!

Fitness has never been so much furry fun!

Are you a dog owner wanting to join a fitness class but feel guilty leaving your pooch at home? Do you love exercising AND dogs, but don’t have a dog? Would you like to combine both these passions and have lots of laughs?

The class involves a variety of bodyweight exercises and low impact moves. Your furry friend must be well socialised and remain on a lead during the class.

This class runs fortnightly on Fridays, 8.30am to 9.15am at Shirley Strickland Reserve, Mount Pleasant.
