Premiers Active April
The Easter holidays are over so it’s back to the daily grind. But don’t lose motivation now. You’re over halfway!
This week it’s straight back into the working week with the added stress of getting the kids back to school for Term 2. After the fun (and cheeky chocolates) of the Easter break getting active might be the last thing you want to do but now is the time to really step it up! There’s less than 2 weeks left of April and there are still plenty of chances to win and events to get involved in.
If you’re struggling to get back into routine or to find the motivation after the holiday break look no further than our Events page for FREE group activities happening all over Melbourne throughout April thanks to our amazing campaign Supporters. It’s always so much easier to get moving with someone there to lead you. Take a friend with you and ‘Buddy Up’ as YMCA says for added encouragement and more fun! Make sure you have a look through our Resources page as well for more information about the importance of better health and increased fitness every day.
It only takes 30 minutes a day! By tracking at least 30 minutes of physical activity you can earn yourself bronze, silver and gold trophies. Plus, for each day during April 2017 that you record 30 minutes or more of activity in the mobile or web activity tracker, a ticket goes into a random prize draw. The first 20 names drawn will win a $100 Sportsmart voucher.
Before you know it, April is going to be over so don’t forget to take advantage of the amazing General Offers that every Active April participant receives just by registering while you still can. While you’re at it make sure you check out the incredible incentives like Stride n Strike from Tenpin Bowling Victoria, discount entry at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, a Free DanceSport Come and Try class, a free Move Your Way online program from Gymnastics Victoria and a free Come and Try day for kids who are visually impaired with Cricket Victoria available until the end of April to help you make the most of getting active.
Just because we’re over halfway doesn’t mean we’re finished handing out prizes. Keep tracking your activity and you could win with the Most Active Workplace, Most Active School or Most Tracked Activity prizes. Plus, keep referring your friends for a chance to win a $250 Sportsmart voucher and one 12 month double YMCA membership. If you’re late getting into the footy this season, don’t worry, AFL Join the Clubs is still going so support your footy clubs Active April team and you could take home a signed guernsey.
Remember to keep your eyes on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages as well as your email for healthy tips, daily motivation and more chances to win. Getting active can’t be hard with offers like this! Only 2 weeks to go. You can do it!
