Exercise classes

Enjoy the buzz, banter and benefits of a University of Stirling Sport fitness class from the comfort of your living room!

We’ve designed a new online timetable, tailored to keep you active and feeling good during your time at home. Whether it’s to kick-start your day, get away from your desk or stay connected with your workout buddies, we’ve got you covered!

All our classes are free to join and can be accessed in a matter of clicks by following the relevant links in the timetable below.

And if you can't make it one day, recordings of the classes will be made available for one week afterwards on our Vimeo channel.

We also continue to post a new home workout on our Facebook and Instagram pages each day between 12pm – 1pm that you can do in your own time. More information about our home workouts can be found lower down the page.
