The Fitness Suite offers a wide range of cardiovascular equipment including treadmills, cross trainers and rowing machines. All help to contribute to fat burning (a major health benefit) and assist in toning up various muscle groups.
Our resistance equipment and free weights help individuals to work all the major muscle groups in the body. By varying the amount of repetitions done during the activity, productivity within the muscle will increase, which in turn helps people improve strength and gain definition. Our equipment is suitable for all abilities and fitness levels and even caters for individuals requiring rehabilitation from injury.
All students, staff and members of the general public are welcome to join as members of the Centre. Our experienced fitness professionals will ensure that your needs are met with a thorough induction and will also guarantee a fulfilling and enjoyable workout.
The Sport and Fitness Centre boasts an impressive Sports Hall. This is available for hire by anyone, regardless of membership status. It caters for a wide selection of activities: courts in the Sports Hall are marked out for 5-aside football, hockey, netball, basketball and badminton.
University societies make full use of our sports hall and equipment. The netball, football and badminton societies are very popular – they are played by many of the students at the University and are continuing to grow in numbers, as is the rugby society.
As well as equipment for sports, the Sports Hall also provides some gymnastic equipment, a selection of floor games and activities, and general equipment that can be used in training or as part as a fun activity.
