Active Breed is a 12-week program focused on encouraging men to improve their physical and mental health and lose weight through a series of weekly education and exercise sessions. Each session will run for approximately 90 minutes and will focus on topics including:
Practical exercise sessions will cater to all fitness levels and will include football skills and drills, supervised gym sessions and small-sided social games. The sessions will be held at and around Belmore Sports Ground and will be run by health experts, Active Breed coaches and Bulldogs legends.
We are recruiting men aged 35-64 years from South-Western Sydney with a body mass index (BMI) of 25-42 kg/m2

After the success of our 2018 pilot program, we asked a few members of our Active Breed alumni to tell us about the impact the program has had on them.
"Active Breed has made a positive change in not just my personal life, but has also improved communication and positive reinforcement with my family. Family has seen a massive change in the way I communicate and openly talk about anything and everything - plus I am much more approachable which makes family life a lot more enjoyable."
If you are thinking about joining..."There is absolutely nothing to lose (besides weight!) You will meet a fantastic team as well as a dedicated support group which will help facilitate every step of the way."

"It has totally changed my outlook in life through my mental, physical and emotional state. I thought I was going in there to lose weight but more than that, I gained knowledge and life long mates. The program prepared me to take on the challenge that I recently went through with my mum who is battling a rare form of Leukaemia. Through the program's education on mental health and reaching out, I was able to remain mentally strong and healthy (during the tough times) as I was able to open up and communicate my thoughts and fears to my support group and loved ones."
If you are thinking about joining..."There nothing to lose (except weight) and everything to gain (except weight)."

"The bond between team members and facilitators was amazing making it a brilliant learning environment. The program sticks with you when you leave, helping you achieve your goals."
"The biggest change has been my diet. I have lost weight, gained energy and feel much better. It's not hard to do and I still enjoy a scotch or beer when I feel like it. If you need a nudge to make positive changes then Active Breed will help you. As part of a team, you will get the support from everyone along with information on mental, physical and dietary help."
"The experience had a big impact on my overall physical and mental health. Helped with a more positive attitude to life in general."
