BOOKING SYSTEM
As we move towards a COVID normal, restrictions are easing but we still need to maintain social distancing and 1 person per 4sqm inside our facilities. Masks still need to be worn indoors, only removing them during high intensity workouts eg. running. Once you have completed your run you must place your mask back on inside the gym again.

We still need to track attendance and numbers inside the facility so you need to book via the DeakinMOVES app, however there is no limit on how many workouts you can now book for the week. Bookings are now for 1hr. High touch points and surface areas will be cleaned and wiped down to maintain hygiene and a clean, safe place for you to workout. You can also make back to back bookings for a longer workout if you prefer.

To book the gym floor:

  1. Open the DeakinMOVES app
  2. Click the ‘Gym & Group Fitness Bookings’
  3. Find a day and time slot that you would like to train
  4. Select the DeakinACTIVE Gym Floor and click the ‘Book’ button
  5. When you arrive for your workout, you will need to sign in with DeakinACTIVE reception and start your workout via the app. This is a necessary requirement to support contact tracing in the instance of a suspected or positive COVID-19 case.

To book a group fitness class, follow the above process but select your preferred day/time/class and click the ‘Book’ button to reserve your place in the class.

If you can’t make your booking, please cancel out so someone else can take your place, with more than 2 hours notice.

We understand this is a new process, so if you have any queries please feel free to reach out to us.
*If you cannot download the DeakinMOVEs App please contact DeakinACTIVE.

 

HYGIENE & SAFETY REMINDER:
We ask that you maintain these practices while you work out:

  • 1.5m physical distancing must be kept at all times
  • Wear your mask at all times inside the facility (unless you are running/high intensity)
  • You must wash your hands prior to entering the gym
  • BYO filled water bottle (water cooler temporarily closed)
  • BYO towel. No towel = no workout. No excuses
  • Equipment will be wiped down frequently by staff. You also need to wipe down your own equipment using the supplied antibacterial wipes before and after use
  • Please use hand sanitiser before and during your workout
  • No ‘spotting’ of weights will be allowed
  • Changerooms are now open. Please bring thongs to wear during your shower
  • It goes without saying but if you are feeling unwell please do not attend
  • If you display signs of being unwell you may be asked to leave the premises
  • By attending DeakinACTIVE you are agreeing that you are not experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, you have not returned from overseas in the past 14 days, and that you haven’t come into contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the past 14 days. If you do experience any of these symptoms, please inform a DeakinACTIVE staff member.
