What you get

Virtual Team Training

Virtual Team Training is a fun but challenging session, run by a personal trainer, that targets different areas of the body.

Each person works at their own pace, making it perfect for beginners through to the advanced, with different progressions available for each exercise.

The program changes from week to week, so there is no chance of getting bored. We'll keep you inspired while you are living, working, and keeping active all in your own home, workplace or wherever you find yourself training.

Sessions are 45 minutes long.

Group Exercise Online

Your classic Group Exercise classes are live streamed from face-to-face classes that are running at VU's Footscray Park Aquatic and Fitness Centre or available in the catch-up classes.

We are currently live streaming yoga, and have catch-up classes for yoga and Pilates. They are here to keep you active no matter where you are.

Catch-up classes

Fitting exercise into your life is not always easy with everything you have on, so if you are unable to attend live sessions you can always do one of our catch-up classes. They are guided exercise sessions that you can do on demand, with a range of levels and durations to fit in with everyone's life.


Join one of our challenges to keep you motivated and progress your activity throughout the year. You can use these challenges to focus on your individual progress or compete against other members for bragging rights.

What you need to know


You do not need specialist equipment to participate in our classes.

If you have weights or resistance bands, an exercise mat and step around your house, great (if not, alternatives are listed below)! They are the main things we will use in Virtual Team Training and Master Movers. We also use chairs frequently. During yoga you have the option to use yoga blocks and yoga straps but you don’t need these.

Weights alternatives: you can use a bag filled with books, or cans of food, an empty milk jug filled with water etc. You can use anything that is a suitable weight for you, as long as you can hold it securely.

Bands alternatives: you can use a towel or dressing gown belt.

Step alternatives: you can use a chair, but sometimes a chair will be too high and so we can offer alternative exercises you can do with out a step.

Space requirements

This depends on the class.

For Virtual Team Training and yoga you need enough space to lay down and wave your arms around (about 2m x 1m depending on how tall you are).

For Virtual Master Movers you need enough space for a chair, and space to walk around the chair.

Training with an injury

Whether you should train or not depends on the injury. We recommend seeking the advice of a GP or Allied Health Professional first. If they say it's OK then you can train.

It’s best to inform your instructor at the start of a session if you have any injuries or niggles that they need to know about so they can offer alternatives to exercises you probably shouldn’t be doing.

Virtual Master Movers is a gentle exercise class, if Virtual Team Training is too hard for you at this time you can Virtual Master Movers instead.

At the bottom of the weekly emails are the exercise lists for each days Virtual Team Training session. You can look at the list ahead of time to prepare yourself to adjust for any exercise you need to.
