Do I need to be vaccinated?
Live Life Get Active is a health promotion charity. We work in communities right across Australia. Our members range in age, from 18 to 102 and they come from 171 different countries. When we work within a community we ensure the environment is safe and welcoming. We remove risks to ensure our members can enjoy the sessions we provide. In this position we have a DUTY OF CARE. Whilst vaccination is not a fail safe strategy, it significantly reduces risk. We have to reduce risk in every instance so people are safe to enjoy what we have to offer. Live Life Get Active will require all members and trainers attending camps to be fully vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption and/or until we are provided with guidance that says otherwise.
What do I need for a session?
We recommend you always have a water bottle, a mat and a towel. If you are training outside, we also suggest you wear sunscreen and a hat.
Can a friend join the session?
Yes, they can. However, they must register with Live Life Get Active to participate.
What should I do if I am finding the session too difficult?
Sessions are designed to work at each participant’s individual pace. If you are not coping with the intensity of the session, it is OK to slow down or to stop. If this is a Zoom live class session you should notify the trainer that you are struggling. Remember to go at a pace that you are comfortable at.
How do I know which type of session to choose?
All sessions are designed for people of varying ages (including ones specifically for over 55’s), body shapes and fitness levels. We have a “go at your own pace” philosophy.
Can I bring my child to participate?
Your child is welcome to join the session with you at home. However, kids aren’t allowed to join our in-park classes due to insurance policy as it does not minors unfortunately.
Can I bring my toddler or young child to sit alongside the session?
It’s OK to bring your toddler or young child as long as you remain responsible for them and there is no disruption to the session for other members.
What should I do if I have existing health conditions?
As set out in the Terms and Conditions, participants are expected to seek advice and clearance from their medical practitioner.

When are sessions available to book?
To be fair to everyone we only make sessions available for booking one week in advance.
Every Wednesday at ~9.10pm, new sessions for ‘Next week’ are made available for you to book.
Please note some camps do ‘book out’ quickly due to high demand.
Can I just show up at a session without booking?
For our Zoom live class sessions you must make a booking through the Live Life Get Active website if you want to participate as the software has a limit on how many people can connect at the same time.
Pre recorded sessions do not need a booking.
We have this rule because:
- It’s fair for all members
- To stop overbooking
- For the safety of all participants
- For legal and insurance coverage
What happens if I am late to a session?
If you are running more than 5 minutes late for a session, then you are not permitted to join the session. This is because the warm-up process is a vital part of the session and it is too risky to miss it.
What happens if I miss a session that I have booked into?
We understand that best laid plans sometimes come unstuck. If you miss two booked sessions consecutively, you may be blocked out from participating for the following week.
How do I cancel a session I have booked?
