The University of Tasmania is committed to supporting its employees to improve their health and provide opportunities to increase physical activity levels. Active UTAS aims to increase physical activity levels of UTAS employees across the three campuses in Hobart, Launceston and Cradle Coast. The initiative is aimed at encouraging activity in all members of staff and to promote a sustainable increase in people’s physical activity levels during and outside working hours.
The UTAS Unigym is pleased to be coordinating the program throughout 2013, extending it state-wide, based on the original model of activities provided FREE to UTAS staff.

"I have participated in the rowing, swimming stroke improvement classes, and Body Attack on Wednesday mornings. I have really enjoyed these activities which have pushed me beyond my comfort zone and introduced me to new activities and colleagues, and reintroduced things that I haven’t done since I left high school.
"I attended the first of these sessions (Active UTAS, Kick Butt) last night and it was FANTASTIC as always! I’m not sure what I did to receive such a fantastic opportunity, but just wanted to sincerely thank you for it. I love it! Thank you a million times! "
