Premiers Active April
North Melbourne’s Jack Ziebell recently geared up for Premier’s Active April, showing his support with local school kids at North Melbourne Primary.
The North Melbourne football star shared his footy secrets, showing how to kick that winning goal and inspiring kids to get excited about participating in Premier’s Active April.
As a professional AFL player, Jack understands the importance of staying fit and healthy, and says keeping active is a way of life for him.
‘I’m really looking forward to being part of the Premier’s Active April initiative, and helping to motivate others to sign up, get out and get active,’ Jack said.
‘While not everyone can run and train as much as we do, I’d just encourage everyone to make the most of any spare time. Get out, have a kick of the footy or go for a walk – not only is it good for you, it’s always nice to get out and enjoy some fresh air.’
Premier’s Active April encourages all Victorians, no matter what age, gender or fitness level, to do 30 minutes of physical activity a day for the month of April, with the aim of establishing long-term healthy habits.
Even though everyone should enjoy the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, research shows it’s not the case. Around 80 per cent of children don’t exercise enough, and 60 per cent of Australian adults fail to meet the recommended levels of physical activity.
Premier’s Active April is a great way for schools, families and the community to teach kids from a young age the importance of regular exercise to their long-term health and wellbeing.
