 Any Body Club logo

The Any-Body Club is inclusive for all students and staff. It’s perfect for ‘anybody’ who doesn’t want to play competitive sports, but wants to get fit and have fun. Activities, including yoga, tai chi, jogging and aqua fit.

Any Buddy Scheme

Two students in the Any Buddy Scheme 

The Any Buddy Scheme is for people who want someone to play sport or get fit with. We want to get more people active and enjoying sport at the University- this provides you with the perfect opportunity!

Athletic Union

 Women's netball practice

Your Students' Union Athletic Union has one of the largest ranges of sports and intramural leagues in the country. You don't have to compete; you can choose to join in with training to have fun and keep fit instead.

 

 

Getting active and staying motivated

Physical activity is something that everyone can do. You don't need to run a marathon or spend hours at the gym.

Look for simple ways to be physically active every day, such as by:

  • Choosing something you enjoy and getting into a routine – Planning regular activity such as swimming, going to the gym or a class. 
  • Making exercise more fun by getting someone to do it with you – you can motivate each other! 
  • Walking, cycling or running instead of driving or taking the bus whenever you can.
  • Joining a team – taking part in sports and recreation activities in groups. You’ll make new friends and get active at the same time.
  • Limiting the time you spend watching TV or sitting in front of a computer during leisure time.

NU2 Sport

 nu2-sport

NU2 Sport is a project focused on providing sport for all students and staff in a fun and sociable environment.

Sessions are free for members. However, sports membership is not mandatory, as you can also pay £1 per session on arrival.

Activities, include football, touch rugby, dodgeball and badminton.

 

 

The gym workout

 Sutton Bonington gym 

For those of you who enjoy a good gym workout or taking a dip in the pool, take advantage of the University sports and gym facilities available on all three campuses. There are three sports membership options, Bronze, Silver and Gold. 

University swimming pool

 Swimming Pool

Swimming is a good way to get fit, it's also relaxing. It's great as a non-impact, cardiovascular workout whilst toning muscles at the same time. Have a go at the swim for gold programme giving you a good workout every time you go for a swim.

UCycle - It's better by bike

 Student riding bike through University Park Campus

The University of Nottingham is committed to sustainable transport. A Sustrans cycling project working at the university aims to make cycling accessible to and enjoyable for all! Bikes are available to loan for the academic year for a minimal cost.

 

Gym not for you?

Slogging it out in the gym on the treadmill not your thing? Take advantage of the University campuses. Have a look at the campus maps and see how easily you could work different routes into your daily routine. Perhaps walk a longer way to your lectures next time!

Exercise classes

From pilates and boxercise to urban funk and zumba - these are just a few of the exercise classes available at the University Park Sports Centre. Beginner, expert or just want to try something new; browse the exercise class timetable to see what suits you
