The Women of Doveton is a FREE health program for women aged 18 and over living, working or recreating in Melbourne’s outer South East.

It consists of programs aimed to improve your mental and physical health through a series of workshops, presentations, events and experiences.

Why Women’s health?
Statistically Women in the outer South East are:

  • At increased risk of suicide
  • At increased risk of becoming overweight or obese
  • At increased risk of heart disease
  • Not as physically active as they should be
  • Not as involved in sports or sports clubs as they could be
  • Not eating enough fruit or vegetables
  • At risk of anxiety or depression

Who is it for?
You - if you are over 18, live, work or play in Melbourne’s outer South East.

The program’s physical activity sessions are split into three groups of varying levels including ‘Getting Active’, ‘Active’ and ‘Active Advanced.’

We aim to make exercise fun, achievable and enjoyable – just the way it should be.

So how does a session run?
Each week we start with a physical activity session for an hour with our ”Come and try” different sports or activities including Australian Rules Football and soccer. One week you will be hearing from cancer survivors, the next you will be discussing what it means to have a respectful relationship.

The Women of Doveton program’s physical activity sessions cater for all levels of knowledge and fitness. The sessions are broken down into three different groups:

Getting Active: This group will cater for those women who may not be familiar
with physical activity. Maybe you’re just coming back from rehabilitation or an
injury? Or maybe you just haven’t been active in a while and want to dust off the runners. This group is perfect for those who just want to get moving again with the support of our qualified staff.

Active: This group is for Women who may have a base level of fitness already,
or for those who may have played a bit of sport back in the day. We will look at
making physical activity fun again with plenty of variety and enjoyable activities.

Active Advanced: This group caters for those women who are in good condition and really want to challenge themselves. Here you will really build up a sweat and get a good workout. Are you up to the challenge?

We all have good days and bad days, so please remember that at any time
throughout the program you can move up or down within these groups. Your
health is our priority.
