Are you interested in learning about your health, getting active with a range of fun workouts, making new friends and being involved in your local community?  Then Daughters of the West is for you! 

Facilitated by the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation in partnership with the City of Ballarat and Sports Central, Daughters of the West is a free ten-week health program commencing on Wednesday 14th July.

What's involved?

The program runs for ten weeks, with each session lasting for two hours. In the first hour you will have the chance to hear from different experts on a range of health topics. After that we’ll get into physical activity. Most sessions have three levels of intensity to choose from each week:

  • Getting Active – For those women with injuries, haven’t exercised in a while or are still finding their feet. This group focus on low intensity exercise.
  • Active – For women with a base level of fitness, this group will do something different each week, anything from Tai Chi to yoga to netball. This group will support each other to try everything!
  • Active Advanced – For women that exercise regularly, this group will be put through their paces by our personal trainers and get a high intensity work out.
