Premiers Active April

The final sprint to the finish line!

Over halfway through Active April and it’s time to finish off your fitness journey with a bang!

It can be tough finding motivation in the middle of any challenge, and we know how hard you have been working to get to this point, so we’re here to lend a helping hand. With loads of fitness tips and tricks, plus plenty of opportunities to try something new and events to get involved in, Active April is here to help you cross that finish line.

April Offers

With only two weeks left of Active April, it’s time to take advantage of all the amazing offers we have in store for you. Active April 2018 brings a range of Offers you won’t be able to resist, including 2 for 1 tickets at Otway Fly Treetop Adventures, Legoland Discovery Centre Melbourne, and SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium.

While you’re at it make sure you also snatch up this year’s incentives such as 10 free passes to a participating YMCA or access to a local government recreation facility, 5 free group dance lessons at a Dancesport Victoria Centre, a 2 for 1 green fee offer at Golf Victoria courses, 15% discount for Rock Up Netball programs, one hour free tennis court hire at Melbourne Park or Albert Reserve, a FREE one hour introduction to Nordic Walking with the Nordic Academy or double passes to ‘Come & Try‘ croquet.

Skateboarding Victoria is also offering FREE All Aboard skate sessions throughout April. All Aboard Skateboarding Sessions are a gender inclusive skateboarding workshop program that allows those who have never skated to try it for the first time in a welcoming and inclusive environment, potentially starting participants on a pathway that can lead to regular, independent skateboarding. Remaining sessions this month are at Box Hill on 28 April, and Kensington and Tarneit on 29 April. For more information check out the All Aboard Facebook page or website.

My Local

Don’t forget that with the all-new My Local feature you can always find ways to keep active by checking what’s on in your area. The feature allows you to search for events and activities in the neighbourhood, near work, or close to school, making it easier than ever to get active wherever you are.

It’s easy to use. Just type in a suburb, set your radius and choose your preferred day or date range, and you’re set to search. During April, we still have new Local Councils coming on board every day so be sure to check back in if you can’t find an event or facility in your area.

Resources

Active April encourages all Victorians to create healthier habits and fitness routines that they can continue throughout the year. To help with this, Active April offers useful resources to all participants on the website including the Active April Family Planner to get you and your family organised. We also offer resources across the website for Schools and Workplaces to help you promote Active April and get others involved, as well as helpful links to assist you in creating long-term healthy habits.

Keep tracking

It’s as simple as tracking 30 minutes a day to keep on top of your fitness goals. Active April has made it easier than ever to track your individual as well as team activity on the go with the mobile app, available for iOS and Android. By regularly tracking your physical activity you can also earn bronze, silver and gold trophies that you can share on your social media to help motivate others.

Daily Activity Tips

Have your kids help out in the kitchen. Let them be part of the food preparation-kids who are involved in the cooking process tend to have a better respect for the food.
