How to stay healthy in the Hills

Let’s face it, health and fitness takes both time and effort. There’s putting in the hours at the gym, eating fresh and healthy produce, getting enough sleep, using the stairs instead of the lift – even when you’d rather sit on the couch and attack a family pack of Cadbury’s.

To do all that, your motivation needs to be at an optimum level, and a way to assure that is to make your health and fitness routine convenient. That is, no point in signing up to classes that’ll take you an hour to get to because, chances are, the couch and Cadbury will win.

Thankfully, The Hills has an endless stream of fitness venues, healthy food options and markets to keep you on track.

Trouble Free Fitness

The Hills has both a convenient fitness offering, along with a community spirit for added motivation.

That is, if you’re feeling a little flat, the Hills Shire offers ways to stay in touch with likeminded people that share the same healthy aspirations as you do. For example, Meet Ups, posts regular group fitness activities and provides a means to meet your next gym partner.

If classes is more up your alley, Virgin Active Norwest has a vast selection of classes — from hot yoga, to ballet barre, to fit ball, and aqua zumba in their olympic-sized pool — to make sure you’re never bored.

For fitness at any hour of the day, Snap Fitness and Anytime Fitness has you covered.

Or take it outside and hit the tracks, cycle ways, and skate parks throughout your local area

Easy Organic

Why bother with anything less than the best produce that can be found in your local area?

The Hawkesbury Harvest Farmers & Fine Food Markets, in Castle Hill, celebrates local produce and promotes sustainable local agriculture. Here you’ll find fresh, seasonal produce, along with freshly ground coffee beans, freshly cut blooms, extra virgin olive oils, a variety of goats cheese, to enjoy with crunchy sourdough breads…

For certified organic produce, opt for the Organic Food Markets at Rouse Hill. Come rain or shine, you’ll fill your cart with a range of premium fruit and veg at one convenient location.

And, at Parklea Markets, you can get anything from seafood, meats, fruit and veg, the kitchen sink, all under one roof.

Healthy On The Go

A quick and easy way to assure your health needs are met is to find takeaways and food options that won’t break the budget, or your belt.

The Hills is abundant with healthy food stations, and cafes serving fresh and low-cal food, or fresh-pressed juices…

Or, you can opt for a healthy salad or main — such as the warm Tuscan salad, Poke bowl, or crispy skin Atlantic Salmon —  in beautiful surrounds at Bella Vista Hotel.

If you do go for the heartier options, we promise not to tell anyone – especially your personal trainer.
