DeakinMOVES is like a fitness buddy that fits in your pocket – not only does it allow you to book your workouts at our DeakinACTIVE gyms, it also includes a range of features to help you stay fit on the go and connect with other students while studying from home. 

DeakinMOVES tracks your daily movement or ‘MOVES’ by bringing all your other health app activity into the one place, so you can set goals, commit to challenges and see how everyone else in the DeakinMOVES community is progressing.

What’s happening in January on DeakinMOVES?

Planning to visit the gym?

All COVIDSafe practices and hygiene services are in place so you can feel safe working out at DeakinACTIVE. 

With reduced numbers allowed inside, you do have to book to attend – for both your gym workouts and your group fitness classes. Download the DeakinMOVES app* if you haven’t already, create a profile and head to the ‘Gym & Group Fitness Bookings’ to book in your workouts. Please note this is a necessary requirement to support COVID-19 contact tracing, and we are unable to open the gyms unless we all commit to following the process.

When you arrive, you must check in by scanning the QR code displayed on the posters at entrances and adhere to all specified safety and hygiene practices (please read these rules on the DeakinACTIVE site before attending the gym). If you have any questions about visiting the gym, please feel free to contact the DeakinACTIVE team at your campus gym.

* If you cannot download the DeakinMOVES app please contact DeakinACTIVE.
