The online fitness industry has boomed since the COVID-19 outbreak began. Victoria University (VU) Sport quickly adapted to a virtual world as lockdowns hit and continues to offer online programs and onsite, face-to-face programs outside of lockdown.
Virtual training at Victoria University is a combination of programs to suit participants of all ages, shapes and sizes in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive space. The programs offer fun and challenging exercise sessions run by VU Sport staff who create a unique environment for the VU community and general public to enjoy – you don’t need to be a gym member, student or staff of VU to be involved.
All online programs change day-to-day, so there is no chance of getting bored. VU Sport keeps the VU community inspired while they are living, working, and keeping active all in their own home.
There are currently 21 online exercise sessions across three categories for only $6 per week per household. There is no joining fee, and you can cancel at any time. There are also two free kids' sessions per week.
VU Virtual Team Training (VTT)
VTT is a live, online and interactive group training session. You'll work at your own pace, making it perfect for beginners through to the advanced, with different progressions available for each exercise.
The sessions have one personal trainer directing the exercise and another engaging with the group. Together they give pointers and variations on exercises and also give you a sense of connection through interaction and feedback. Each session is run using everyday household objects and ends with the open mic group chat so you can chat with other participants.
Group Exercise Online
VU Sport is currently offering two of your classic group exercises classes online – yoga and Zumba – to keep you active no matter where you are.
Virtual Master Movers
These classes are newly available online and designed to help with balance and keep people active. The classes are appropriate for those who have cardiac concerns, diabetes, or who haven’t done exercise in a while and need to start back gently, with low-impact or chair-assisted exercises.
To access these fantastic opportunities check out the latest timetable.
Kids Blast Online
Kids Blast is a free, interactive and live session for your kids to keep active and engaged during lockdown. We understand that many are experiencing hardship during these uncertain times and Kids Blast provides an opportunity for kids to have fun and play games with our super fun coaches.
