Sportsworks is the place to leap, run, throw and row. Pit your skills against some of Australia's best-known sportspeople and investigate your body's abilities for particular sports. Are you tall? Flexible? Can you jump high, run fast or react quickly? Record your results in your Sportspass and see how your abilities change between visits.
