Sport Australia’s annual AusPlay survey has confirmed that on average, regular physical activity levels are on the rise amongst Australians across the country. However, the study also found that “it is estimated physical inactivity now contributes to the deaths of 16,000 Australians every year.”
ANU Sport is committed to helping to continue the upwards trend in physical activity and to improving the health prospects of students and the Canberra community alike: here are four ways that we can help you improve your mood and physical health this year!
- Commitment not your style? Test the waters with a free trial!
Free trials are available for our fitness centre, so you can check out what we have on offer. You can come and test out our gym, cardio theatre, group fitness classes, strength and conditioning room (with Olympic lifting platforms!), indoor cycling studio, all for free!
Once you decide that the gym is for you, we have a variety of different membership options for students, staff, alumni, sporting club members and general members, including no lock-in contracts ($8 per week for students, say what?!). You can find more information about joining the gym here.
- You'll receive five free guest passes with every membership purchase so that you can bring a friend along to join you!
Did you know that when you join our gym, you receive five guest passes you can use to bring a family member or friend into the gym or a group fitness class with you? Training with others is a great way to stay motivated – there’s no staying in bed when someone is waiting at the gym for you!
Alternatively, do you know someone with a membership at ANU Sport? Ask them to take you next time and get them to show you the ropes!
- 70+ group fitness classes each week, so you don’t need to train alone!
With a group fitness class to suit everyone, you’ll never feel lonely or awkward when training with us at ANU Sport. From the intense cardio work-out you’ll get at BODYATTACK or RPM, the core-strength and mindfulness you’ll acquire at Yoga or Pilates, to the strength you’ll gain in BODYPUMP, there’s a class for you regardless of your goals.
For ANUSA & PARSA students at the ANU, we offer a variety of free group fitness classes throughout the week - check out the timetable here.
- Don’t know where to start? You can ask one of our expert personal trainers!
With personal training sessions on offer with any of our talented and highly skilled personal trainers, there’s no excuse to fall off the wagon once you start! Our trainers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and speak a variety of languages, so you’re certain to find one that you like to help you along your fitness journey. Book a session now.
