Local residents are about to hit the gym in an effort to shed those unwanted holiday kilos, Jessica Phillips from the Charleville Hospital is encouraging everyone to participate.
“We’re running a program called the battle of the budge starting in February. Battle of the budge is a 12 week challenge program so we’re inviting the community of Charleville to register teams to compete in the battle of the budge,” says Jessica.
Not only is the program set up to help residents lose weight it has been established to ensure a healthy lifestyle.
“Our battle of the bulge program also links in with some broader state wide programs, so that’s the healthier happier campaign, available on the QLD health website.
“So healthier happier campaign has lots of great resources on their website, things like great recipes, different work out programs they’re actually got workout videos that you can sit in your lounge room and copy but they’re also got a great tool called the health and fitness age calculator,” says Jessica.
Jessica says choosing a weight loss plan that will be compatible with your particular fitness goals and lifestyle is a good way of making some headway on those seemingly unattainable weight-loss targets and the battle of the bulge challenge is expected to do just that.
