There are a number of fitness sessions supported by the department, run by members of the department, for members of the department. They are small informal groups, so people new to the activity are welcomed.

There are also some sporting activities which are listed here, as they promote fitness and do not yet have their own page.


Time: Tuesday lunchtime
Suitable for: beginner + intermediate
Description: Developed in the 1920's by the legendary trainer Joseph H. Pilates, the Pilates method is a body conditioning fusion of western and eastern philosophies, focusing on strengthening, lengthening and mobilising the body. It focuses on the core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced and which are essential to providing support for the spine.
Attendance: Due to the available space we have to limit numbers. If interested, please contact Caroline Stewart to check whether there are places available.
Instructor: Caroline Stewart is a qualified RSA Exercise to Music Instructor and a Michael King Pilates Matwork Instructor.

Informal recreational running

Time: Monday lunchtime
Suitable for: Anyone who is comfortable running between 10 and 8 minute miles over a total distance of a few miles.
Description: This is a group of like minded individuals who run principally for enjoyment. Although we are unable to fulfil all of the functions of a traditional running club, we will try to accommodate anyone comfortable running at a moderate pace.
Attendance: Although the group is not exclusive, prospective runners are kindly requested to contact us before joining for the first time.
