MATES beyond WEIGHTS

This event is for men who are passionate about their physical wellbeing and know that mental health is an integral part of it. Taking care of your mental wellbeing and health is no longer a stigma, it is a neccessity for a modern man who wants to live a happy and fulfilled life.

At MATES beyond WEIGHTS, Peter Balcarek and Ted Voges from New Man Today will share quick tips on how to improve mental wellbeing, how to find the courage to share struggles and be open about not being ok, those times when you feel "off".

Why to come along?

Mental health and wellbeing is becoming quite a problem in Australian society impacting severely young man. This results in depression, anxiety and general feelings of stuckness, emptiness and purposelessness. In Australia, men aged 35 to 44 have the highest rates of depression, with one in 12 having experienced depression in just the past 12 months.

Gyms are usually where mates and blokes come together for a good workout and for the so called "real men activities". Often gyms are the places where men take down their guards, relax and feel the most comfortable.

Primal NRG Fitness led by Ray Low is such a place where men can come together and be themselves. Its phiosophy is Progress, Purpose and Comradeship. Perfect place to share what men struggle with on day-to-day basis.
Ray has wealth of fitness knowledges having been in the industry for decades. He will present some really great insights into how physical fitness impacts our mental well being and how it aids mental fitness.

MATES beyond WEIGHTS will be men's real get-together where we'll talk about real things. Who wants can lift a bit of weights and we will finish up with a barbecue.
