ACU Moves

ACU Moves is a fitness tracking app designed to get you moving. Find and book fitness classes, get reminders about your health appointments, and keep track of your health goals. Download for iOS or Android.

Get moving

ACU Moves connects to other apps, as well as your wearable fitness trackers to track your movements, level of activity, calories burned, distance travelled, workouts completed and more. You can even manually input your activity to have all your health and wellness information in one easy to access place.

Find and book classes at the ACU Sport Gym or access one of the ready-made workouts to do at home. There’s a workout for every level of strength and fitness, so you can access new workouts as your fitness increases or your health goals change.

The app also has another unit of measurement called Moves. This is a measurement of intensity plus duration.

Moves are a way to measure all types of activities. The Moves you collect depend exclusively on the activity you have chosen and how active you are. For example, an easy 10-minute walk will earn you roughly 100 Moves, while a 10-minute run at a low intensity will earn your 200 Moves. Moves are calculated based on the personal data, like weight and height, that you input when you sign up. Moves let you compare your activity with your friends and challenge them for fun. To be healthy, you should aim to collect at least 1000 Moves per day.

Challenge yourself

The app also runs Challenges where you can compete against your friends, yourself or anyone else. There are lots of great prizes to be won by participating.

Got an idea for your own Challenge? Email acu.moves@acu.edu.au to discuss.

Already got a fitness tracker?

ACU Moves will interact with your fitness tracking devices and activity tracking apps on your phone if you give permission. This helps ACU Gym staff tailor workouts for you, it will also ensure that all your daily activity and workouts will contribute to any ACU Moves Challenges you are participating in.
