Cooma - Snapshot
Residents of Cooma-Monaro are on their way to losing weight as part of the NSW Healthy Town Challenge. Over the next few months, participants of the Cooma Get Healthy Town Challenge will be participating in a variety of activities to support their weight loss journey. Activities range from Green Gym Equipment sessions and Hula Hooping to nutrition based activities including the Foodcents program and recipe sharing.
On Saturday 22 November 2014, participants attended the first Green Gym Session. Local resident Kingsley Vance demonstrated how to use the equipment safely and effectively. Over the next few weeks participants will be progressing through four of the eight fitness stations locatd around Cooma, including Rotary Oval, Snowy Oval and Monaro High School.
