When it comes to fitness, it’s not one-size-fits-all—some of us like to run, others would rather stick pins in their eyes. Some love nothing more than ball sports, whereas others can’t live without CrossFit.

We want to give our readers the opportunity to try the huge diversity of activities that Canberra has to offer—and that’s where our local fitness providers come in.

We’re asking sporting groups and health and fitness providers, to give our readers the opportunity to participate in an activity for free as part of our year-long Get ACTIVE series.

From our readers’ perspective, it’s a chance to try a new sport, class or activity at no cost, without the hassle of finding friends to come along or mustering the courage to go it alone.

It’s taking the intimidation factor out of trying something new, because we’re all in it together.


The chance to put yourself in from of our audience of 130,000+ unique readers a month—most of whom are Canberra women between 20 and 50.

We want as many women in Canberra to get active—with you. We want them to fall in love with a new way of moving their body, or an old, forgotten favourite.

We want them to sweat, have fun, and connect with themselves, each other, and you.


Great! We’re now looking for activities from March 2020 onwards.

We just need to know a little bit more about the activity you’d like to offer. It could be anything, including:

  • Staging a free ‘come and try’ session/s for your sport or activity
  • Providing a free class pass
  • Offering a free trial
  • Anything else that gives people a chance to get active in a low risk and accessible environment.

Simply fill in this handy form and we’ll be in touch! If you want to be involved, but you’re just not quite sure how, drop us a line at belinda@hercanberra.com.au and we’ll work with you to come up with something that’s right for your business.

We can’t wait to get ACTIVE with you.
