Exercise Right Week
Inspiring Australians to be healthier and more active!

Exercise Right Week is an annual awareness campaign held in the last full week of May every year. Since it’s inception in 2014, the campaign has aimed to highlight the benefits of exercise for health and well-being, and to help Australians to understand where to get the “right” advice for their individual needs.


The campaign is brought to you by Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA). ESSA is the peak body for exercise and sports science professionals in Australia, and is dedicated to helping Australians live healthier and more active lives.

Exercise Right Week 2020


The theme for 2020 was “Movement is Medicine“. We wanted to highlight how powerful exercise, physical activity and movement are for your physical and mental health. We also want to showcase that exercise is for everyone, regardless of age, weight, background or health status, and to help everyday Australians understand where they can get the right advice for their individual needs.

Exercise Right Week 2019


The theme for 2019 was “Active Ageing”. We wanted to highlight the fact that being physically active and staying fit helps Australians you to get the most out of life at every age. Despite these benefits of regular exercise, only 17.2% of those aged over 65 are meeting the physical activity guidelines. We wanted to change that.

Stay tuned for Exercise Right Week 2021!
