Happy Holidays Fitness Challenges & December Updates

It’s party season at DeakinACTIVE! Start the new year strong with these great summer offers

The holiday season is upon us – yay! Let’s soak up the warmer weather and get MOVEing to stay happy and healthy for the summer months ahead.

Remember the DeakinACTIVE gyms on each campus will remain open until Wednesday 21 December 2022 but don’t worry about missing your workouts over the break – once the gyms close until the new year, you can still access our online classes via the DeakinMOVES app and on social media.

Following the break, the Burwood and Waurn Ponds gyms will reopen on Thursday 5 January 2023, and Warrnambool will open again on Monday 9 January 2023.

What’s on at DeakinACTIVE over summer

Want to get fit and strong for the holidays? Perhaps you’re looking to set some fitness goals for the new year? We’ve got some great fitness programs and offers available.

Finish the year feeling fit

The end of the year is a fun time for indulgences, but it can leave us feeling a bit blah. You can keep MOVEing this party season and over the break by joining our fun December fitness challenges and programs on the DeakinMOVES app!

  • For our Skip into Summer fitness challenge, everyone who totals 10k MOVES over December goes in the running to win a one-month free membership.
  • We’ll also be running a Merry Fitmas program across December, where we’ll be serving up 24 Christmas-themed home workout sessions to keep you feeling merry.
  • And over the break? Join our New Year Jumpstart workout challenge, beginning from 22 December 2022 to 4 January 2023, in which everyone who completes 10 or more workouts goes in the running to win a 30-minute personal training session.
