Who We Are

S.H.A.R.E.

Self Help Association through Responsibility and Enrichment

SHARE was established in 1983 (Incorporated in 1986). SHARE is a not-for-profit organisation supported by NSW Health for residents living in the areas covered by the Sydney Local Health District.

We seek to empower our people to make healthier choices by eating healthier and engaging in physical activities through the provision of education and information. By doing so SHARE is Building Healthier Communities.

SHARE holds strong values, which include passion towards the business’ mission, maintaining professionalism, always striving for innovation, and ensuring a compassionate, caring and trustworthy environment.

What We Do

Built on SHARES’s existing expertise, experience and reputation we offer affordable exercise and education classes to the adult community through a network of trained community educators and accredited fitness instructors.

SHARE’s well designed, specialised exercise classes include targeting Falls Prevention and chronic diseases. Our strategy is closely aligned to NSW Government Health’s “NSW Healthy Eating and Active Living Strategy” which includes tackling overweight and obesity.

Our community-based exercise programs are effective and the collaborative approach enhances exercise opportunities to people in our community. SHARE also supports several aspects of the community with its provision of high quality and affordable Gentle Exercise and Health Education programs. This includes developing tailored programs that cater to all disadvantaged groups such as: People with a disability; Indigenous people; Mature-aged people and groups from non-english speaking backgrounds.

SHARE classes are run by fitness leaders who are registered and accredited by Fitness Australia. All our leaders are experienced in catering for older adults and are able to provide guidance and helpful advice. We provide bilingual leaders for groups from non-English speaking backgrounds where possible.

SHARE classes are run at a number of convenient locations throughout Sydney, and tailored programs for your organisation can also be held at your own venue.

The types of classes we offer include Tai Chi, aqua fitness, aerobics, resistance training, and stretching and relaxing. You can find out more about our classes on the Courses page.
