SPRING SMALL GROUP TRAINING AT THE UC RECCENTRE

Our popular Term 4  Small Group Training (SGT) courses are open for registration, just in time for Spring!
These courses are open to everyone (no membership required), so if you’re looking for a bit of extra motivation during your workweek, we might have the perfect solution for you, just over the other side of University Drive!

What is Small Group Training? 

  • Short 6-week fitness courses, focusing on a specific fitness/mind-body discipline. E.g. Boxing, Bootcamp, Yoga, etc.
  • Our experienced instructors work with you, along with the same small group of people each week in a supportive and energising environment.
  • Workouts can be individualised to suit you and your experience, due to the small class size.
  • A great way to remain accountable and motivated to reach your health and fitness goals.

Nominate your sustainability hero today!

Know someone at UC doing great things for Sustainability? Or maybe it’s you? We want to hear about it!

Get your thinking caps on… nominations for the UC Sustainability Awards are open from 5 – 31 August.

The Sustainability Awards are about the recognition and celebration of all things sustainability – both on and off campus. This is a great chance to acknowledge the hard work, innovation, imagination and optimism of many of our students and staff who are working hard to make our world a better (and greener) place.

Maybe it’s a sustainable student-led project, academic or post-graduate research, or a green thinking department on campus? Maybe it’s the flatties who compost like crazy, and bike to UC rain or shine?

Tell us all about them (or yourself) by finding the nomination form and all the info you need here. Nominations are open until the end of August, and the Awards Ceremony will be held on 2 October.

If you know of someone whose work deserves acknowledgement and celebration, nominate them! We want to hear from you.

For a recap on 2017’s Sustainability Awards, have a read of this blog here, or check out our Sustainability Champions for some inspiration.

This message was bought to you by the UC Sustainability Office. Stay connected and follow us on FacebookInstagram or sign up to our newsletter to stay in the loop about campus sustainability. This blog is part of our plan for the 2019 UC Sustainability Awards. For more information, and for the Awards nomination form, see our website.
