Our entry level fitness programs are a great way to get up & going!

Encouraging healthy habits, and increased fitness and mobility, the Active8 fitness programs focus on maximum results for entry-level fitness.

The Active8 Fitness program is subsidised by the Douglas Shire Council to help support bringing affordable fitness options to the Douglas Shire community. In the event of adverse weather conditions, fitness sessions may be cancelled – updates will be posted on Council’s Facebook Page.

Bookings are not required for all classes and are currently at no cost.


Tai Chi for Health is a program designed to improve balance, strength and coordination. This program suits all ages and abilities. Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body.  This class has been so well attended that we are now proud to be delivering classes in both Mossman & Port Douglas.

If you have a disability or recovering from illness you may bring a chair and the class can be adapted to support you.
