Get active in April: join a monthly DeakinMOVES fitness challenge

Trimester 1 is ramping up, daylight hours are waning, and chocolate eggs and hot cross buns are plentiful. Could you use a little motivation to get moving?

Staying physically active not only energises your body, but it can reduce your stress levels, boost your mood and amplify your study efforts. 

If you could use a goal to keep you on track, then join one of our April group challenges! To sign up and view full terms and conditions, log into the DeakinMOVES app* and navigate to the ‘Join our challenges’ section of the homepage.

Choose your challenge

Are you based at Burwood or Waurn Ponds? 

You can join our Get Active April challenge by attending at least ten group fitness classes at either the Burwood or Waurn Ponds fitness centres throughout the month of April – why not set a goal to attend as many different classes as you can?

And best of all, for the first two weeks of April, Strive members can access group fitness classes for free!

Simply register via the DeakinMOVES app to get started. At the end of April, two lucky winners will be selected (one from each fitness centre) to receive a free one-month Thrive membership.

Attention all Warrnambool members!

We have a couple of special challenges for you all this month on the DeakinMOVES app, so start tracking your activity to collect as many MOVES as you can

You can choose to join the Beginner MOVES challenge (in which you’ll track at least 10,000 MOVES for the month) or the Advanced MOVES challenge (at least 30,000 MOVES).

One lucky winner from each challenge will win three free personal training sessions with Cyrus, our new PT! 

Help us stay COVIDSafe at DeakinACTIVE

All students coming to campus should be aware of the guidelines outlined in Deakin’s COVID-19 FAQs. COVIDSafe practices and hygiene services are in place so you can feel safe working out at your local DeakinACTIVE fitness centre

With reduced numbers allowed inside, you do have to book to attend – for both your gym workouts and your group fitness classes. Open or download the DeakinMOVES app*, 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.
