The Circular Head Council developed a holistic approach to caring for the community, through the implementation of a health and well-being program - balance your life, which was launched on Wednesday 23 February, 2010 at the Community and Recreation Centre, Grant Street Smithton.

balance sees Council facilitating the coordination of services and programs which promote wellness in the community. balance builds on existing activities already undertaken by Council as well as introducing new initiatives such as 'Lose kilos for the Community'.

It fits perfectly with the federally funded 'Healthy Communities Initiative', which was introduced in Councils across the Cradle Coast Region in 2010.

"balance your life is not just about instigating physical activity. It builds on existing recreational infrastructure and facilities provided by the Council, and programs with young people, seniors, our multicultural community and people with disabilities that also sit under the balance banner.

Emergency management and road safety initiatives, such as the Mayor's 'Look out for your Mates' campaign, contribute to safe communities, while community events and festivals such as the Australia Day and National Youth Week celebrations and the annual Christmas Parades help to develop a sense of community connectedness. Inclusive communities are more likely to attract and retain skilled workers, therefore initiatives such as balance your life have a potential economic development role.

Fitness on the Foreshore

One of the initiatives delivered under the balance your life banner is Fitness on the Foreshore.  This facility is a range of exercise equipment available at East Esplanade, Smithton.
