Welcome to our latest North Harbour missive. This week we’re getting fit and sporty with a new local community partnership, updates on our sporting sponsorships, Village Park Boot Camp info and a focus on home gyms with GJ Gardner.
Our big news this week is our new community partnership with local AFL Club Moreton Bay Lions ASFC. The Lions’ state of the art AFL Precinct is located under five minutes from North Harbour, in the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex and has been described by AFL Chairman, Mike Fitzpatrick as “comparable with the best community sports facilities in Australia”.
The Club has Senior, Women’s and Youth/ Junior teams with plenty of on and off the field fun to be had. As regular readers will know, North Harbour’s masterplan includes having a sporting complex of our own in the future, and sport and recreation are big on our list of must-haves for our residents.
We are very pleased to be able to sponsor The Lions’ 2017 season and to help the Club achieve its vision of becoming the Club of choice for players and supporters of Australian Football in the Moreton Bay region. You’ll see our North Harbour signs across the grounds and the Club and look out for upcoming Club offers for North Harbour residents on our Facebook page.

Boot Camp with Cam at The Village Park
As you may remember, North Harbour resident and Boot Camp guru Cam started a new Boot Camp in our Village Park at the beginning of the year. The training sessions have been extremely popular with a great take up from North Harbour residents.
In fact the Boot Camps are so popular that Cam has started up additional classes. We’re really pleased to see our Village Park getting such great use! As Cam says: “When I saw the North Harbour Village Park it was like a dream come true. Every trainer wants to have the perfect location with lights, plenty of grass and shelter. I found what I’ve always wanted and it was right where I wanted to live so I consider myself very lucky!”
If you’d like to come try Cam’s Village Park Bootcamps they are currently on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6pm as well as an 8am session on Saturdays and more days to come. Your first session is free and prices start at about $8 per session. For more info you can contact Cam on 0403 932 060 or visit www.cam-fit.com.

Having a Gym at Home
One of the best things about building your own home is the fact that you can design it with your needs in mind. And, if you’re keen on fitness and buying a new home at North Harbour you might be thinking of putting aside some space in your new abode for home workouts.
Many of the designs in our 35 Home Display Village include options for media rooms, playrooms, study nooks and home gyms! If it’s something you’re interested in, check out the links below and have a chat to your chosen builder.
That’s it from us for this week – I’m off for a run around the park! Have a good one ?
