The group exercise class provision is one of the most popular services provided by Sport and Physical Activity and in response to customer feedback the Health and Fitness Team have worked hard to enhance its offer for the start of the 2017 term.
Going from 160 to 220 classes per week during term time, this makes it the largest exercise class offer in the city and one of the largest within higher education across the country.
The team have responded to industry trends and introduced new classes such as Clubbercise, Barre Pilates, Ballet Fit and for the first time ever, 30 minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) classes taking place on the gym floor. Ideal for members who need a quick workout on their lunchbreak, before or after work and can’t attend the usual 45-60 minute classes on offer.
Another major part of the exciting new development is the introduction of a brand new Virtual Class offer, with Studio 1 at The Edge undergoing a £10k investment turning it into an enhanced training space with a wide range of digitally led exercise classes in addition to the usual instructor-led sessions.
