"Council's Live Well Logan program is very popular, with sessions at 95% capacity," Cr Breene said.
"There have been more than 50,100 attendances at 92 regular activities during the first half of this year.
"We've had positive feedback, with 92 per cent of attendees saying the program helped them improve their eating habits and 97% saying they had increased their general physical activity.
