ANU Sport Gym Standard

FEATURE: Come and attain your fitness goals in a safe and friendly environment at ANU Sport!

We are living in unprecedented times and whilst the global environment is one that we cannot control, we can look after ourselves and our health, fitness, and wellbeing. At ANU Sport we take the topic of health and wellbeing very seriously and can ensure our current members, and the entire community, that we run a safe and hygienic fitness centre. 

For your peace of mind, ANU Sport has maintained a stringent booking and session timetable to allow adequate time between sessions to clean the entire fitness centre between each session. Our team cleans every piece of equipment after each session throughout the day, totalling eight thorough cleans of ALL equipment, regardless of its use during the session.

These protocols are something our Fitness Services Manager, Brett Bowden, is extremely proud of. “I can safely say that we are one of the cleanest Fitness Centres in Canberra,” Bowden said. “We always have staff on the floor helping members and a cleaning session is never ever missed. It’s a safe and fun place to work out.”

Whilst our team are doing their best to make sure that the Fitness Centre, and its associated facilities within Building 19, are clean and safe for our members and the community via a rigorous cleaning program, health and hygiene is everyone’s responsibility and there are a number of preventative measures that attendees can undertake to help this process continue.

“We would ask all attendees to adhere to social distancing, follow the traffic flow and directional signage provided and, perhaps most importantly, stay at home if you are not feeling well,” Bowden commented. “Exercising while ill is not a smart decision, and it may cause you more harm than good, not to mentioned the increased risk of spreading illness to your fellow members. 

“We have highly valued the return of so many of our members and would encourage any new member to consider joining and working out at our ANU Sport facilities, providing you are healthy and able to do so. Our fitness centre is a great place to achieve your health and fitness goals, and improve your wellbeing through creating positive a mindset. It is well documented that when your body is strong and healthy it can fight illness better.”

ANU Sport is expanding our operations to accommodate the demands of our members, returning to pre-COVID opening hours, increasing the number of training sessions available each day, and expanding our Group Fitness Class timetable.

“All participants are required to book into a session for both the fitness centre and group fitness classes to ensure we can manage social distancing and should it be required contact tracing, “Bowden said. 

“While we discourage drop-ins and casual visitors to avoid disappointment from a full session, if there are spaces available and members follow the correct protocols, we certainly welcome them into a session. We are still offering Personal Training sessions and membership inductions to support our members to return to training and would like some additional support and guidance in the fitness centre. It is vital that we work together to provide a safe, happy, and hygienic environment for everyone to exercise and reap the benefits and reach their health, fitness, and wellbeing goals.”
