Inaugural Fiordland Men’s Muster - Helping Men Help Themselves To Health

Local, regional and national coverage has meant that the Men’s Muster had a groundswell of exposure and interest. The 3 day event offered guys a men’s health & wellness event combining learning, camaraderie and community with a Lake2Lake Challenge for a bit for competition, fun and achievement; participants came away, having learned something new, tried something new, made some awesome muster mates … and hopefully came away equipped to apply something new in relation to their own wellness.

Designed to lift participants, Men’s Muster featured bits of education, exploration, engagement, challenge and fun; rewarding participants with strengthened connections, collaboration and community. All critical elements to strong health & continued wellness.

Individuals or groups of 4 mates/workmates came to Men’s Muster as a team and take part

in the Lake2Lake Challenge and learning how to ensure their own health & wellness..

An inaugural event during Men’s Health Week in June 2021, Men’s Muster was blessed with incredible Keynotes, excellent workshops (Work/Life balance), superb insight (Conrad Goodhew, Chris Skellett) and opportunities to explore Fiordland.
