Most people have come into direct contact with the work of the Royal Children’s Hospital at some stage in their life, but for Woodlea resident Olivia Scalzo, it was very close to home, with her sister becoming the youngest child to successfully have a spleen removed at just three years old.
It is for this reason that Olivia has thrown her support behind this year’s Run for the Kids 2019 and with Woodlea being the first ever sponsor of the 5.2km Short Course, she’s volunteering her time to help locals prepare.
As a qualified personal training and the founder of Liv PT, Olivia is lending her expertise to inspire the community to take part in the run with weekly training sessions, designed to help families prepare for the fun run, while giving them the confidence that they are up to the task.
“These training sessions have been created to give people the opportunity to practice and train, as a lot of people don’t know where to start when they are training for a fun run, or are unsure if they are fit enough.
“If you’ve done training you can look at the fun run as an opportunity to push yourself as high as you can! But if it’s your first time, then it’s important to remember that this is a run for everyone, so there are opportunities to walk and to run - just find the level that works for you and have some fun with your family and challenge yourself,” she said.
The sessions will begin with a test to assess each attendees fitness level and finish with the same test to measure how they have improved. The program will cover a range of exercises, with a strong focus on cardiovascular training.
Olivia explains that there are many benefits of participating in a fun run, both from a social and health perspective.
“It’s not only a great way to meet people but also a chance to prove to yourself that you are capable of participating and making a commitment to your health.
“Being active is going to benefit your health, your physical self and your body,” said Olivia.
Olivia has lived in Woodlea for over 18 months and believes that the community spirit is what makes it unique.
With a vision to become Australia’s healthiest community, Run for the Kids sponsorship is just one of the many initiatives Woodlea is implementing over the next 12 months, with footpath decals now installed throughout the Woodlea estate to map out five-kilometres.
The training sessions will be located in Frontier Park and will take place every Tuesday from 6pm. For more information about Liv PT, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/liv.pt.fitness/
