The 80 station Fitness Suite is available to our members up to 90 hours per week across 7 days. With a range of Technogym cardiovascular, fixed resistance machines and free weights, there is something for everyone regardless of your experience and goals. The cardiovascular machines are equipped with in-screen entertainment system which allow you to watch TV, access your favourite sites on the internet or set your exercise programme.

New members will need to complete an induction, where you will be set up with a MyWellness account which will enable you to track and record your progress.

Quiet gym sessions at Edge Hill Sport 9am - 11am Tuesdays and Thursdays

In our Fitness Suite, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9am – 11am we are trialling two ‘quiet time’ sessions a week where we aim to make a quieter and less mentally stimulating environment through:

  • Turning off the music
  • Turning off the TVs
  • Closing some of the blinds
  • Politely requesting that our users to try to keep noise down as much as feasibly possible.

A range of fitness classes are available through Edge Hill Sport. Classes range from relaxing stretch yoga to high impact aerobic sessions.

  • All classes are free to those with our Sports Centre membership.
  • All class instructors are fully qualified and experienced.
  • For health and safety reasons there are minimum ages for all classes;  14 years+ for Running Club, Konga, Legs, Bums & Tums, Total Tone and Zumba, 16 years+ for all other classes.

Exercise referral scheme

We have created a ten week course of exercise specifically aimed to improve a broad range of physical, physiological and psychological medical conditions including, among others, angina, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, hypertension, asthma, anxiety and depression.

It can also play a key role in assisting post-operative recovery, mobility, insomnia, back pain and weight loss, as well as improving self-esteem and fitness. This can be accessed by Edge Hill University staff members through a referral from Occupational Health. Edge Hill Sport is also able to host some referrals from Cardiac Rehab, Pulmonary Rehab and Cancer Rehab at Ormskirk District General Hospital.

Edge Hill University students can take advantage of an Active Wellbeing Programme aimed at improving physical and mental wellbeing. This service can be accessed through a referral from Student Wellbeing. Once a referral has been made, our qualified Referral Programme Consultants, who are fully trained to devise appropriate exercise schedules, will, after a confidential personal assessment, issue a suitable programme of exercise. The exercise programmes are extremely varied and adapted to suit each referral’s health status and individual preferences.

If you feel you, or someone you know, would benefit from a course of exercise on our exercise referral programme, please speak to the appropriate person with regard to the referral you require or one of our Referral Programme Consultants.

Active Edge

Regular exercise can be fun as well as making you feel better, strengthening those joints, reducing the risk of many diseases such as heart disease, reducing the effects of arthritis.

The member benefits are the same as an off peak Premier Membership (excluding evening exercise classes) with the addition of free entrance into any programmed Active Edge session.

Active Edge sessions

Our Active Edge sessions are aimed at helping older adults stay fit and agile with our multi-activity sports session in a friendly and sociable atmosphere.
