It’s time to get moving

You know things are serious when the pollies get involved! As the Million Moves (MM) representative for Moreton Bay and the electorate of Longman, Member for Longman Terry has laid down the fitness gauntlet to his neighbouring politicians, all in the name of getting the community moving. 

In a recent gym session, Mr Young taunted Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien that the challenge is more about exercise than sipping lattes overlooking the beach break. It seems Mr Young has set his sights on more than just Ted O’Brien for the MM challenge, with his target the entire Sunshine Coast region.  

Determined to put the electorate of Longman and the Moreton Bay region on top for the Million Moves Challenge, Mr Young is putting a call out for assistance to reach the million milestone first. The aim of the campaign is to get the community moving so that they feel better and they can win prizes in the process! 

For 21 days (starting May 1), people of all ages living in the electorates of Longman, Fisher, Fairfax and Wide Bay are invited to join the challenge and complete 75 moves a day to help their electorate reach the million milestone first.  

Research shows 75% of Australians don’t get the required amount of physical exercise a day. Million Moves aims to highlight this statistic - and break it - by promoting 75 moves a day over three weeks – the time it takes to form a new routine.  

Mr Young said Million Moves was about promoting physical activity to help improve overall health and wellbeing. 

“Health and exercise is such a good preventative measure, when it comes to health, both mental and physical, so let’s get off the couch and get into it!” Mr Young said. “I’ll be getting out with the people from Dragon Boats on Bribie and going for a paddle and just doing a few simple things like doing a few star jumps or push ups each day. It all makes a difference, so I encourage everyone, get involved, it is going to be a great initiative.”
