If you want to keep fit, meet new people, and have fun this is the programme for you, so come along to our sessions!

Free Weekly Activities

All the activities we offer are free to book through the Loughborough Sport app. They are led by volunteer student activators who aim to ensure a positive, friendly environment that includes everyone who attends. If you have a disability and you are unsure about attending or whether the session is suitable for you, please do not hesitate to drop us an email. We have friendly staff available to meet with you, talk you through the session and even give you a tour of the facilities! 

Try and book in advance for all timetable activities as places are limited and booking is on a first come first serve basis. Please select the My Lifestyle tile on the Loughborough Sport App home screen to book your place.

Please be aware that all activities are subject to change during term time and a different timetable is run during the exam season.
