The 'I Earned It' T-shirt member rewards programs runs across all three Active Monash centres, and is open to all current members, swim school students, MVP holders and stadium team players. Throughout each month, staff across Active Monash will nominate Members, Students or MVP holders who they believe are deserving of an 'I Earned It' T-shirt.

There are only 5 t-shirts to be WON each month!
We are looking to reward members who show respect to staff and members, who work hard and who are dedicated to Active Monash. Monthly winners will be contacted within the first week of each month to collect their prized T-Shirt. Winners will be asked to have their photo taken, and asked a few brief questions to be featured in the upcoming Active Monash Newsletter.



Awarded: June 2017.

Melissa has worked incredibly hard and stayed committed to her weight loss goal since August last year. She has lost over 45kg, and is still going strong! Melissa has remained consistent with her training, and has been diligent towards her nutrition throughout the past 11 months. It's not often someone sets out to lose almost half their body weight, and less than one year later you're asking them, "Now what?".

Awarded: June 2017.

Bronwyn is a worthy recipient of the I Earned It top as she is a supporter Active Monash and has been for some time.

Her dedication to her gym training is paramount and she also fosters community spirit within the gym getting others (and herself) involved in promotion for Bowel Cancer Australia wearing undies on the outside for this worthy cause.

For these reasons she has been nominated for the I Earned It accolade

ASI-Yanni-IEI_thumb.jpgYanni - Health & Fitness:
Awarded: 6 February 2017.

Yanni has been working extra hard in the gym over the last three weeks by adding in an additional session during the school holidays. He has continued to develop great awareness of his body and in understanding how he can get the most out of every session. I have been most impressed at his ability to take on feedback and make changes, resulting in better efficiency and movement of his body.

Yanni hasn't just earned this t-shirt from the last three weeks, though. He has been working consistently over the last four years and has made some incredible gains. From tackling new exercises to moving more weight, Yanni has continued to push himself and aim higher every week. If you see Yanni and me in the gym come up and say hi, or dare him to a race on the bike! Watch out, he has a competitive streak!
