The Gold Coast SUNS have today launched the ultimate free online fitness companion tailored to young people aged 12-17 in a partnership with the Queensland Government and Playbk Sports.

SUNS Active Lab is a cutting-edge platform accessed via a smart phone or tablet which encourages young people to access inclusive fitness programs curated by SUNS staff.

It’s a program for everyone – whether you’re an athlete, a fitness enthusiast or just getting started in your journey to becoming fit and active.

Featuring 100+ professionally-produced videos across seven key fitness areas; strength, speed, agility, mobility, aerobic, warm up/cool down and technique – the SUNS Active Lab is aimed to enable young Queenslanders to be physically active more often.

In collaboration with Health & Wellbeing Queensland, the SUNS Active Lab is designed to reduce barriers like cost and accessibility, and encourages young people to be motivated by physical activity.

Gold Coast SUNS Chief Executive Mark Evans said:

“We are proud to be joining forces with our e-learning partner Playbk Sports and the Queensland Government to deliver this new exciting initiative tailored to teenagers,” Evans said.

“Imagine an entire library of exercises all in the palm of your hand, that can be accessed anytime and anywhere, along with words of motivation from SUNS stars like Touk Miller, Jack Lukosius, Lauren Bella and Lucy Single.

“What’s even better is it’s completely free through the SUNS Learning platform which now caters to school students of all ages.

“We’re committed to making a difference in our community and pleasingly our reach now extends from early childhood with Kool Beanz SUNS, all the way to tertiary education through the Gold Coast College of Sport and Business.”

Playbk Co-Founder Damian Hecker said:

“While 97% of Australians understand the importance of physical activity for health and wellbeing, it's concerning that nearly 40% of young Queenslanders don't meet the daily 60-minute quota.

“Our aim is to tackle geographic barriers, reduce participation costs, and instil fun into physical activity for all, driving our passion for innovative projects like this."

Queensland State Minister for Tourism and Sport Michael Healy MP said:

“The Miles Government is always looking at new and better ways to improve the health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders and this program is helping to make it easier for more Queenslanders to be physically active more often.

“This product ticks all the boxes and has the potential to have a real impact on the lives of young Queenslanders, some of whom may well be running out for the SUNS in years to come.”

The SUNS Active Lab is now available to sign up and access from your smart device.
