Frequently asked questions

How do I register?

Register online via our website.

Do I have to register for each block?

No, you only have to register once to have access to all 3 blocks.

Can I register at any time?

Yes, you can register at any time throughout the year from 14 January 2019 until December 2019. 

How long do the blocks run for this year? 

In 2019 we will be offering 3 blocks that each run for 15 weeks. At the end of each block, a new timetable will be released. 

What do I need to bring with me to classes?

This information is contained on the Activate timetables located on the website.

Do I have to book for the classes?

Some classes do require bookings, while others do not. Information on booking requirements and contact details are contained in the block timetables located on the website. Please note: bookings are made direct with suppliers, not the Activate team. 

What if I haven’t done the activity before?

Great! Activate is all about trying out new things to see if you like them. All of the suppliers must scale the workout to suit beginners, so get out there and give it a go.

How do I keep up to date with the program?

The Activate Facebook page is the easiest way to keep up to date with the program and be notified of any last minute changes or cancellations. We also send out an e-newsletter with updates a few times during each block.

Can I bring children to the classes?

Some classes are child friendly while others offer creche. Limited detail on this is contained in the timetable but if you would like more information it is best to contact each supplier direct.

Can I bring along a friend who isn’t registered?

Anyone that attends Activate sessions must be a registered participant for insurance reasons. As it is a free program it is simple for them to sign up before they attend with no further obligation if they do not like the program.
