August 2014 saw the launch of Fraser Coast Health and Fitness Community Action Group. Now re-branded to the simple and easy to remember ‘Fraser Coast Fitness & Health’ (No more tongue twister, soothing new colours, easy to remember, new directions, new activities, new goals & new timetable.)
Good friends Jeanette, Cheryl & Florian are excited about the new direction!
They are a team of passionate people and businesses in the community that are vested in helping others achieve a new way of life and thinking that is healthy, exciting, fun, productive and will make them happy and confident! I want to share with you their enthusiasm, motivation, professionalism, qualifications, encouragement, support and life experiences and encourage you to go on this amazing journey with them!
Jeanette is a qualified personal trainer and life coach who is extremely passionate about her fitness, striving for excellence in all aspects of her life, motivating and inspiring others on their journey. She definitely ‘Walks the Talk!”
Jeanette is a published author and has written the “4 Week Program” being a mind, meal and exercise plan that has proven to really work.
Since 2012 Jeanette has been leading people on mountain hikes, free 20km Community hikes on Fraser Island and free monthly 10km challenges in Hervey Bay (run or walk).
Her next 10km Challenge is on Saturday the 4th of July starting at Scarness Car Park at 6am. All welcome, take the Challenge, or go half way and do 5km!
Cheryl Virgo is a qualified natural therapies & massage therapist plus life coach with 15 years experience specialising in energy work.
Cheryl takes a free 6.5 km beach walk from Torquay Jetty to the Pier return each Wednesday at 6 am. All are welcome and you will experience the most magical sunrises on the East Coast!
