LOCAL wellness coach Ellen Howland has a vision to make Gunnedah a healthier and happier community and is keen to make an impact with the opening of a new lifestyle centre in town.
The Gunnedah Lifestyle Centre will offer healthy lifestyle workshops, mums and bubs clubs, information on health and nutrition and fitness challenges.
It will also be home to a delicious smoothie bar to quench your thirst while you reach your fitness goals.
But the local coach has been thinking about opening a centre since well before that community challenge began.
"I went to Singapore in 2016 and they did a talk at a conference I went to about a similar concept and it's been something that's been on my heart since then," she said.
"My mentor actually runs one on the Sunshine Coast and I've been watching what they're doing.
"We really want to do one here and have a bigger impact, providing people with an opportunity to really improve their health, wellness and mindset and live healthier and happier lives."
A "fun information session" will be held on Tuesday, February 23 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Civic Centre meeting room on 83 Chandos Street Gunnedah for those wanting more information.
Ms Howland said the Gunnedah Lifestyle Centre will be launched in April, with a lease soon to be signed, and a location to be announced soon.
"The premises we are looking at, we should be signing the dotted line for the lease pretty soon, then we will announce where we are going to be," she said.
