Why Get Active?

Physical Activity Presentation - ACTIVE Halifax Communities will come to your school or organization to deliver a presentation on the benefits of physical activity. This presentation talks about how much physical activity do we really need to maintain our health and discusses ways to get active in and around your community that don’t require a gym membership.

 This one hour presentation can be modified for target audiences and includes background information on physical activity for children youth and families, and the health risks associated with inactivity. The bulk of the presentation delivers recommendations on how to incorporate activity into your daily life and why being active can be fun for the whole family.
