In 2020, Exercise Right Week will be held from the 25th – 31st of May.
This year, the theme is “Movement is Medicine“.
The aim of the week is to highlight how powerful exercise, physical activity and movement are for your physical and mental health.
The Week also showcases that exercise is for everyone, regardless of age, weight, background or health status, and helps everyday Australians understand where they can get the right advice for their individual needs.

Cambridge Kids Taekwon-Do It Through COVID-19
A local Taekwondo group has kept children’s spirits high and remained a popular after-school activity in Cambridge, during the COVID -19 related facility closures and restrictions.
Local organisation, Active Taekwon-Do, has been running classes in the Town for more than 17 years, including classes with local primary school students at the Town’s Wembley Community Centre.
When the group could no longer train indoors, they took the classes outside and adapted their sessions for Term 2.
Even the recent storm that hit Perth was not enough to deter the brave group, who used the undercover area at the Community Centre to continue the sessions.
Active Taekwon-Do owner/teacher and City Beach resident James Scott said taekwondo was an excellent way for children to improve their fitness, build self-confidence and most importantly, develop strong mental resilience.
Mr Scott believed mental resilience was the most invaluable skill for children to learn, particularly in the current environment and when navigating through the world of social media.
He said he had always loved teaching and sharing that experience with someone who does not know how to do something, then with their help, they suddenly can.
Active Taekwon-Do does not use modern forms of marketing to promote the business. Its success is the result of word-of-mouth recommendations rather than advertising online or via social media, proving the popularity of the program speaks for itself.
All sessions are held at the Wembley Community Centre and Matthews Netball Centre in Floreat, with 95% of students being Cambridge residents.
Active Taekwon-Do accommodates all ages and levels, from beginners through to Senior Black Belt.
