June Updates, Fitness Challenges, and more

Finish T1 strong with these great winter offers from DeakinACTIVE

As the days get shorter and temperatures drop, it’s more important than ever to implement ways to keep moving every day, just like you would commit to a study routine.

It’s well established that exercise improves mental health and cognitive function, so make sure you’re getting at least 30 minutes a day as you enter revision mode for the end of T1. Join our June fitness challenge, 30 for 30 offer, or Big Freeze event– it’ll keep you firing and in peak condition as you sit your end-of-unit assessments!
