What can we help you with?

Would you like to set Gatton as your preferred campus?

If washing your hands conjures images of scrubbing in for surgery, and your partner is baffled why you keep throwing pie for them (OK, enough Grey’s Anatomy and Orange is the New Black references), it’s official – you have a Netflix addiction!

Symptoms include binge-watching, insomnia, the inability to find a movie you haven’t watched, and pop culture references limited to this season’s streaming package. You begin to realise how weak your willpower really is when you find yourself glued to the screen at 4am on a Dogs With Jobs bender.

At least back in the good ol’ days renting movies from the video store involved some form of exercise (remember walking from the couch to the TV to change discs). But with your remote doing all the work, the only time Netflix raises your heart rate is during those 15 seconds between episodes as you frantically decide if you’re doing anything with your life today.

But there is hope. Treatment is within remote’s reach, designed so your eyes never have to leave Jon Snow’s luscious locks. Give rest day new meaning with our Netflix & Not-So-Chill Workout, perfect for releasing happy hormones when you’re too emotionally invested in a lead character’s dwindling love life.

Press play on these moves that will strengthen and tone your body….one episode at a time.

CRUNCH ON THIS

Raise the bar (metaphorically speaking) and test your strength with leg raises!

How to do it:

  1. Sit on the edge of your couch with your legs straight out in front, and hands placed either side of you.
  2. Engage your core, and slowly lift your legs, keeping them straight and your ankles together, until your feet are in line with your hips.
  3. Hold for a moment, then slowly lower your legs back down.
  4. Repeat!

RAISE THE LEGS

You may swim like a fish, but can you kick like a dolphin? This leg lift variation will have you fighting your body’s natural buoyancy to maintain control.

  1. Leaning back on the edge of the pool, extend your arms in a ‘T’ shape along the pool’s edge and lengthen your legs.
  2. Keeping your heels together, slowly lift your legs (hold them nice and straight) to the surface, then slowly push them back to the pool floor.

CHALLENGE: Extra points if you keep your back straight and pressed against the edge of the pool!

LUNGE IT OUT

Say hello to Superman’s soggy counterpart, Aquaman.

  1. Hold on to the edge of the pool, and float your legs to the surface.
  2. Kick your legs as fast as you can.

CHALLENGE: Keep the water in the pool – avoid splashing by keeping your legs underwater for a better workout.

DON'T RUN WITH SCISSOR KICKS

Did you know you burn more calories jogging in water, than you do on land?

  1. Dip into waist-deep water, and jog for 1-3 minute intervals.

CHALLENGE: Add water weights in each hand to make this a full-body workout, and double the damage!
