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.
ACU Moves is run by ACU Sport and was developed as part of the Healthy Campus Program and UniMoves initiative to promote healthy university communities in Australia.
UniMoves is an initiative in partnership with Sport Australia focused on creating healthier, happier university communities. This is a pilot program with 11 Australian universities which aims to help staff and students alike find their 30 minutes of activity each day in an effort to combat obesity.
