Physical health

It can be hard to stay motivated and maintain your daily physical routine when you can't go to the gym or play team sports.

UQLife is currently rolling out a series of online live classes and videos with our partners across our social media channels to help you keep healthy and active during this period. New videos will be uploaded here as they are made available.

Workout with UQ Sport

HIIT Indoor Workout

No gym? No worries!⁠

UQLife has partnered with UQ Sport to bring you workouts you can do at home

You can still be active indoors with this quick and easy HIIT workout. You'll utilise your body weight to get your blood pumping with little to no equipment needed.

Add a quick warm up before you start of high knees, star jumps and a run on the spot for 30 seconds each. Don't forget to clear a reasonable area for your workout - we don't want any table edges or ceiling fans to get in the way of a safe sweat.

Post-workout, re-hydrate with room temperature water and cool down with a nice long stretch!
