Woman working out at Burwood Campus gym

Boost your mental and physical fitness between classes at an on-campus DeakinACTIVE!

Finding time to be active can be a struggle – we get it! Many of us are balancing studies with work, family and social commitments. And with exams just around the corner, you’re probably getting ready to hunker down for some serious study sessions.

But did you know that just a few minutes of aerobic exercise can boost your memory, attention and learning for up to two hours? Staying active also plays an important role in stress management and fortifying our wellbeing, so physical activity should ideally be a central feature of your study routine. 

What motivates you to commit to a fitness routine?

We understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to staying active, and setting realistic goals is important when it comes to balancing your health with other commitments. Here’s three good reasons why you consider trialing a DeakinACTIVE membership at your local campus fitness centre.


If you’re keen to fit in more exercise but you’re time-poor or want to avoid extra commuting, why not try out the DeakinACTIVE fitness centre on your campus? 

We have three great facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and a range of fitness classes on offer at the Burwood, Waurn Ponds and Warrnambool campuses. And if you want to squeeze in a quick workout before or between classes, we have shower and locker facilities so you can freshen up before you head off!


Need some fitness inspo to get you started? Then look no further than our beautiful and fully appointed spaces!


With generous membership packages starting at the cost of just a couple of coffees per week, we have an affordable option to suit everyone! 

For those of you at Burwood or Waurn Ponds, we’ve can offer you the following benefits to help you reach all your fitness goals.
