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 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!
"I am so glad that I discovered the Cognitive Change Program. It was just what I needed to kick start a new routine of health and fitness. It is only a start, but the pacing of the Program over twelve weeks meant that we made a commitment to keep going for that time and by the end of it I had really started to feel the benefits. "
