Sports for all, whatever your ability
2 December 2020
We’ve got something for everyone, whatever your sporting commitments. From one-off yoga sessions to regular training, we’ve got you covered.
Sporting level: No commitment
No training or trials, no long-term gym contracts, just exercise classes when you want them. Project Active sessions are beginner-friendly, inclusive activities (we’ve got women-only and Postgraduate-only sessions) that don’t break the bank. With no commitments or experience necessary you can come and enjoy a range of activities from yoga and HIIT to toning and Zumba classes - it’s all about having fun and being active in whatever way works for you.
At the moment, all classes are online, in small groups, with a qualified trainer guiding you through the sessions. Once it is safe to do so, we’ll be recommitting to social sports like 5-a-side football, rugby and hockey.
Sporting level: Regular trainng

Sporting level: Gym-Style
Whatever your sporting level, we’ve got Bloomsbury Fitness - your student gym right on campus. Since we run the gym, our priorities lie in providing you with a good service that is affordable - so affordable that we’ve got the lowest prices in the area. We don’t charge you to leave, put our prices up halfway or tie you to contracts and most of our staff are students like you. We’ve got friendly people, a packed class schedule (classes are included in the price) and great facilities like squash courts.
As with all our facilities during COVID-19, we’ll be reopening our gym once it is safe to do so. Keep an eye on our socials where we will be keeping you updated with what’s open and what’s not.
