Women Challenged To Out-Do Men Again At Active April

Last year more than 104,000 people made a pledge to do 30 minutes of exercise each day during April, and collect some great prizes.

Of these registrations, 60 per cent were women. This wave is tipped to continue with record numbers of women and girls expected to sign up to get involved at grassroots clubs across Victoria.

Recent research shows Victorian women are now outperforming men when it comes to keeping active. It reveals 61 per cent of women are exercising at least three times a week compared to 57 per cent of men.

Getting involved in Active April can be as simple as taking a regular walk, riding to school or work, exercising during your lunch break, getting out in the garden or joining your local sports club.

Sign up today at www.activeapril.vic.gov.au or join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Registrations are open until April 30.
