Improve lives through physical activity and social connection. 

Greg is on a mission to prevent some life-threatening problems. There is no sugar coating this; 

  • Men are living longer but not necessarily better. Now with a life expectancy at 80.4 years, however this is still much lower than women.  
  • Obesity increased from 34% in 1989 to 67% in 2018, with 74.5% of men being overweight, compared to 56% of women 
  • Mental illness is at an all-time high with over 20% of Australians reporting a mental health episode in 2017-2018 
  • Suicide is at a record level with men being 3 x more likely than women to commit suicide 
  • Calls to MensLine about family violence increased by 56% in 2020 

Get connected. Get active.

The research has repeatedly shown that exercise and socialising improve health outcomes. In fact playing sport or being active  4 + a week within a team or group reduces psychological distress by almost 50%. 

Being physically active*; 

  • Protects against mental health concerns 
  • Decreases depression in older adults 
  • Is as effective as mediation for mild to moderate anxiety and depression 
  • Improves self-esteem and cognitive function in young people 
  • People who participate in sports clubs and organised recreational activity enjoy better mental health

Who is behind Greg?

Craig, John & Simon, old football mates. 

After finishing up with football in the 2000’s they all went their separate ways. Fast forward 10++ years, they all realised what they were missing, that sense of belonging and mateship that comes with team sports and club culture. The team set out to change it. Creating Greg to connect people with activity and get on the journey of living a healthy lifestyle. 

With some help from their mates; 

Clair and Jordan, both graduates of Recreation Planning and Management and are passionate about leading healthy lifestyles.
