BOOKING SYSTEM
With reduced capacity allowed inside DeakinATIVE facilitie (either to use the gym or attend an indoor/outdoor classes) at any one time, there is a limit on member attendance. This means you will need to pre-book your workout time and classes via the DeakinMOVES app. Gym bookings are for 45min blocks (on the hour) to allow for 10min cleaning between bookings. You can book up to 4 workouts per week and 2 bookings per day. This is to manage equity and fairness for all members.

To book the gym floor:

  1. On the home page, scroll down to Class Timetable
  2. Find a day and time slot that you would like to train
  3. Select the DeakinACTIVE Gym Floor class and click the ‘Book’ button
  4. 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 so someone else can take your place, with more than 2 hours’ notice. If you don’t cancel and are a no-show, you will be given a penalty. Please respect that there is limited availability and we want everyone to have a fair opportunity to return to training.
If you arrive after your allocated starting time, you will still be allowed entry for your given 45-minute booking, but will need to be out of the fitness centre at the end of that 45-minute time slot.

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 (unless you are running/high intensity)
  • You must wash your hands prior to entering the gym
  • All change rooms are temporarily closed – please arrive in your workout gear
  • 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
  • Your workout time is for 50min only. No loitering after your workout. It’s harsh but our new mantra is ‘Get In, Train, Get Out’
  • It goes without saying but if you are feeling unwell 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
