Why ACU Active

At ACU Active, our mission is simple: to help students, staff and local community get active, stay active and love being active. It’s no small task, but we think we’re up to the job. Why? Because we know a long-term, sustainable commitment to health and wellbeing takes more than just sweat and determination alone. That’s why our programs and facilities will activate your body, refresh your mind, keep you connected when life gets hectic and provide you with the knowledge you need to reach your fitness goals.

Active in connection

Stay on track and connected even when you can’t make it to the gym, with exclusive access to our online classes, seminars and pop-up outdoor sessions. It’s just one of the many ways we’ll help you keep moving forward when life’s little challenges threaten to get in the way of your health and wellness goals.

Active in mind

Our holistic approach to wellbeing is captured in our “vibe wellness” classes. Delivered both in person and online, we have a range of yoga, Pilates and meditation/mindfulness sessions facilitated by professional teachers. We strongly believe these programs are an important (and often overlooked) opportunity to destress and refresh your mind.

Active in body

Our fully equipped modern gyms and ‘The Zone’ high intensity group training sessions offer everything you need to improve your fitness, strength, and physical wellbeing.
From free weights, machines, cardio equipment and functional training gear, your body will thank you for the wide variety of training options. We’ve got you covered!

Active in knowledge

Get the guidance you deserve for no-extra cost with our Kick Starter program. We’ll design your training program and provide ongoing support to make sure you’re on the path to reaching your goals. Our exercise science qualified professionals will make sure you receive up-to-date, evidence-based knowledge and advice.
