Active Grocery Shopping Excursion

Home > Brisbane > Community Events | Free | Health and Fitness | Shopping
For many of us, grocery shopping is a chore we'd rather hire someone else to do. What if you could turn that menial task into a fun and active shopping excursion?

Brisbane City Council is hosting a free event called the Active Grocery Shopping Excursion through their GOLD (growing older and living dangerously) program. This program provides lively and healthy activities (both free and low-cost) for residents aged 50 years and over.

Complete Performance Solutions are the hosts of this free event. They'll teach you how to maximise your shopping experience by getting fit and increasing your strength while having fun.

The free Active Grocery Shopping Excursion is running two separate groups for this event, both held on Tuesday, 13 September, 2011. The first group will experience an active shopping excursion at Westfield Chermside, Gympie Road from 9 am to 10 am. The second group will exercise while shopping at Westfield Carindale, Creek Road, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.

There is a maximum of 15 people per group and bookings are required. For additional information or to reserve your spot for either location telephone the Brisbane City Council on (07) 3403 8470.
