If you ever needed the motivation to get fit, this is it.

Gyms use lots of tactics to get people in the door – inspiring slogans, motivating images, lock-in contracts. But Virgin Active may have hit upon one strategy that will get even the least exercise-loving Aussie to the gym.

The hack

Sign up to Virgin Active and head to the gym 12 times each calendar month (that's three visits a week) and you will take home 250 Velocity Points each month. The offer is open to both new and existing members.

New members also get an additional deal sweetener. For the first four months of your membership, if you meet the minimum 12-visit threshold, you will receive 10,000 Velocity Points.

10,000 Velocity Points, just for showing up to the gym a few times a week (that's right, the terms and conditions aren't dependent on how long each of your visits is for!). Although, if you want the full value of your Virgin Active membership, you may actually want to work out while you're there.

If you aren't a Velocity member, you can earn an additional 500 Velocity Points by signing up using the URL on Virgin Active's site before 30 September 2017 and completing a transaction with a Velocity Partner with an Activity Date on or before 30 November 2017.
