Time to get moving! Make a strong start in T2 with DeakinACTIVE

Welcome to a new trimester – we’re so excited to be back on campus!

Whether you’re just starting at Deakin or a returning student, check out our amazing DeakinACTIVE fitness centres once you arrive on campus – it’ll do you a world of good. With research showing that just a few minutes of aerobic exercise can boost your memory, attention and learning for up to two hours, staying physically active between your classes is one of the best things you can do to establish a strong and sustainable study routine for T2. 

And aside from the huge convenience of having a gym next door to your classrooms and facilities, DeakinACTIVE has a range of membership offers which make our gyms as accessible and affordable as possible for everyone at Deakin – take a look!

Join DeakinACTIVE in July

With generous membership packages starting at the cost of just a couple of coffees per week, DeakinACTIVE has an affordable option to suit everyone! And for the first fortnight of T2, during OWeek (5–9 July) and Week 1 (12–16 July), we’ll waive the joining fee on all new DeakinACTIVE memberships and give you a free visit to come and try us out! We’ll also be present on each campus during OWeek to show you our facilities and get you moving with fun activities, so keep your eyes peeled!

Thinking of joining us at the Burwood gym?

Based at Waurn Ponds?

And for our Warrnambool warriors?

All memberships packages include no lock-in contracts, a 28-day cancellation period, and are direct-debited on a fortnightly basis for your convenience. Find out more about our membership packages on the DeakinACTIVE website.

Looking for a challenge?

Every month, DeakinACTIVE holds fitness challenges to get you moving and feeling motivated. To sign up and view full terms and conditions, simply log into the DeakinMOVES app, navigate to the ‘Join our challenges’ section of the homepage, and choose your challenge!

Mingle while you move!

DeakinACTIVE will host a range of DeakinPLAY activities and social sport competitions in July for Trimester 2, and we’d love you to join us! These weeknightly games are the perfect way to stay fit, stay sharp and connect with your fellow students while participating in some good-natured competition.

You’re welcome to gather a group of friends and register your own team, or sign yourself up and we’ll add you to a team looking for individual players of similar experience. Competitions take place on campus after 6pm on the evenings listed below.

Burwood: Monday 12 July – Wednesday 29 September

Waurn Ponds: Tuesday 13 July – Thursday 30 September
