Premiers Active April

We’re keeping Premier’s Active April going!

Premier’s Active April continues beyond April this year to help Victorians continue to get their 30 minutes a day of physical activity while stay at home restrictions remain in place.

So please continue to stay connected with your virtual teams and keep tracking your activity via the mobile app or website.

We can all do with a little inspiration to keep us moving, particularly when our routines have changed. Our virtual teams are a great support. Why not get even more creative and design a new challenge to keep your team active at home? It’s your choice and can be as serious or fun as you like. Share what you’re doing to stay active on social media – we’d love to hear from you.

If you haven’t set up a team, no problem. You can create one with family and friends, or your school or workplace on the Active April website.

This year, tracking your activity doesn’t have to end in April. Our activity tracker will continue to be there for you while we are all staying at home to help slow the spread of coronavirus. There’s good news for Fitbit users too – just sync your Fitbit with the Active April tracker with one click. If you don’t have a Fitbit that’s okay, you can still enter your activity into our online activity tracker.

3 TIPS TO KEEP ACTIVE AT HOME

Here are three other ideas to keep motivated and get your 30 minutes of activity each day.

  1. Join an online class – check out your local gym or recreation centre to see what videos or classes they have online. There are loads to choose from and it’s a great opportunity to try out something new. Also, check out our Get Active Workout videos – there are ten to choose from – from strength to cardio workouts.
  2. Phone a friend – be social while you are being active at home. Do a stretching session, stationary bike, online class or even garden with a friend over a phone or video call. Schedule a regular session to encourage each other.
  3. Have a routine – set aside the same time each day to get active and make it part of your routine. If you’re working from home now, try using the time you would have spent commuting to work.

Registration is still open at Premier’s Active April.
