Get Active: Refreshers 2019

We know health and fitness can sometimes be daunting, but we are on a mission to help as many students as possible get involved! Whether it’s a health and fitness class, social exercise group or recreational sport, our team can help find what works for you.

The team will be in the Atrium Monday to Thursday (14–17 Jan), 10am – 4pm, during Refreshers so come along and have a chat to find out more about what we have to offer!

As well as details about our clubs, classes and programmes, we are also offering free Health MOTs and consultations for anyone who needs a little extra guidance in getting started.

Check out all the full sporting Refreshers itinerary below. Further information on the wider Refreshers programme can be found on the Students’ Union website.
