Staff wellbeing - free online sport for staff

From January, all University and college staff will have the opportunity to take up a three-month free trail of the virtual fitness programme.

Active Anywhere gives you access to over 500 fitness and wellness classes, catering for all ages and abilities. These ‘Wellbeats’ classes range from on-demand workouts, lasting between 10 and 60 minutes, to quick stretch breaks that are perfect for lunchtime, as well as nutrition education classes. It also gives access to Oxford University’s Live Stream fitness classes from its own studio at Iffley Road.

To join, all you need to do is register using this online form and download the Oxford University Sports app on your smartphone.

You will be asked to sign up for a free direct debit. At the end of the three months’ free trial, you will be asked whether you wish to cancel your membership, or to continue using the service for £3 per month. 

The free staff access has been made possible thanks to the new Staff Wellbeing Programme Board, formed to help support staff wellbeing during the pandemic.
