 Activity Bites

It's often hard to find time for activity in our busy schedules. You can either drop in for part of a long session (eg swimming) or the sessions are just 30 minutes.

  • Dance Fitness An Aerobic workout that incorporates many forms of dance.
  • Yoga Stretching & breathing session that will keep your mind and body relaxed.
  • Circuits Get fit but have fun while doing it. Circuits will test your aerobic fitness whilst building muscle.
  • High Intensity Interval Training A quick and easy way to get some exercise into your schedule. It's not as intense as it sounds and you can have great fun doing them. 
  • Swimming Drop into the 2 hour session at any time for some extra swimming - a nice lunchtime activity. **Please note that this session is not coached but just an extra period for students to swim (you must be able to adhere to the STV policies to enter the pool). 
  • Spikeball New fun and exciting - check out How to play.
  • 6-a-side Our 6-a-side session give you a chance to turn up for 30 mins and get put into a team to play another team in a relaxed fun game environment.
  • Football-Tennis A mix of 2 popular sports. Kick the football over the tennis net between 2 or more people. Lots of fun to be had. 
  • Kick-Fit SU Kickboxing are running a short fitness session, so you can get changed, have a fun & intense workout, shower and return to your lives inside a lunch break! There will be no kickboxing within the session but may be some fun and interesting ways to get fit with the equipment available.
