Have we got a deal for you...


UC Staff Self-Care Fortnight - Staying Well 


As part of the HR Self-Care Fortnight for UC Staff, the Rec & Sport team have the following RecCentre deals:

If you aren't yet a member...

Step 1. Come over to the RecCentre and get yourself a free 14-day pass. 

That's right, between Monday 29th April and Sunday 12th May, pop over with your Staff ID card, and we'll issue a 14-day pass that will start the day you come over to get it.  

Step 2. Bring a friend (or two or three...)

 It can be daunting to go to the gym by yourself, so why not grab a friend so you're not alone?  It's also well researched that having an exercise buddy will increase your chances of sticking to your new self-care health routine.   Your friend doesn't have to be a UC Staff member or student, you can bring anyone (as long as they're over 16yrs of age).     Make sure they bring photo ID, and we'll issue them with a 14-day pass as well.   You can bring more than one friend, on different days as well.  The more, the merrier, as they say! 

If you're an exisitng member with us, this applies to you too!  Bring your mates along so they can experience the awesomeness we know you keep telling them about.  

Step 3.  If you love us, join us! 

If you figure out that you're keen to keep coming, then consider joining.  As a staff member, you enjoy discounted rates, and Union members enjoy further discounts too.  Check out our memberships page to see our options.   

Now for something you didn't know...we do affiliate rates for 'your person'

As a UC Staff member, we offer you the ability to nominate one person to receive discounted affiliate rates.    You will need to come with them to sign them up, and we'll make a note on your membership record who your person is.  For Self-Care Fortnight, we'll let you nominate anyone and everyone that you bring along for a 14-day pass!  So, you won't have to have that awkward conversation of deciding who to gift the discount to, and you'll have more buddies to keep you motivated.  After this promo period, you'll go back to having one special person to nominate at any one time.

Self-Care specials 

During the promotional period, and up to 2 weeks after (finishing 26th May, 2019), we're offering the following specials...

Special 1.  For new members - join on any membership type, and receive TWO free PushMe sessions, valued at $70

Get started the right way, the safe way, with a personalised programme and workout session with our Fitness Consultants.  Just like personal training, we'll stand beside you and encourage you to be your best and keep you accountable.   First session must be booked at time of joining. 

Special 2.  For existing members - earn up to 8 weeks free membership!

If any of your nominated people sign up and commit to at least a 3mth membership, we'll extend your membership by two weeks; if they join for 6mths we'll give you four weeks, and if you get them over the line for a 12mth membership, we'll gift you 8 weeks extension of your membership.  Whoa!  Any combination works, and you can earn up to a maximum of 8 weeks free membership, get yourself a few exercise buddies and after all that, you might want to shout them a wee post-workout coffee.  

Special 3.  For existing staff members - step up your game and try PushME at Student prices

PushMe is the RecCentre's personal training service.  Get expert attention and care from one of our fully qualified and experienced fitness consultants.  They can help with planning a schedule that fits your lifestyle, goals and abilities.  Why pay $60 or more per 45mins, when you can get 8 sessions with us for just $320?  But wait, there's more.  That's the standard price (crazy good right?) during the promotional period, if you book and pay for the PushMe package up front, we'll give it to you at the UC Student rate - just $200!  Spaces are limited, so get in quick! 

Special 4.  For ALL members - GET IN THE ZONE!

Experience our all new ZONE classes for the special price of just $20 for 10 classes!  Our Zone concession cards are valid for 6mths, and can be used in any of our FIT45, Spin or Yoga Restore classes.  Limit of two per person, which will be added to your UC RecCentre account, so you can view your balance at any time. 


During Self-Care fotnight, we're offering up a yoga class on campus for free, and a wee talk on exercise, so check the Self-Care Fortnight schedule for details.
