Important COVID-19 Update


Exercise Right Week is designed to promote higher levels of physical activity and exercise, and we believe this is now more important than ever. We will continue to help educate and inspire Australians to stay active, especially in the face of the new challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Exercise Right Week will proceed in 2020, however due to the ever-changing global situation, certain limitations will apply.


Due to the current restrictions and health recommendations surrounding COVID-19, we will be limiting all campaign materials to digital-only and at this stage, we will not be hosting Exercise Right Week events in 2020.


We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and will make necessary changes as required.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Exercise Right Week is an annual public awareness campaign brought to you by Exercise & Sports Science Australia.


In 2020, Exercise Right Week will be held from the 25th – 31st of May.


This year, the theme is “Movement is Medicine“. We want 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.



More information will be released as the campaign approaches. Sign up to stay up to date with all the latest news, events, resources and information about Exercise Right Week.
