    Hiya,

    I'm going to Buxton campus this September to study Outdoor Adventurous Activities and was wondering if there is a gym on campus or if there is a half decent one in the local area?

    Hi Mike

    We've just finished refurbishing the Buxton Campus' sports facilities (at a cost of £1.6 million) there's now:
    • a new 15 station fitness facility with access to the leading range of Technogym cv, free weights and strength equipment.
    • a newly refurbished 4 court sports hall
    • a recently installed Rocktopia bouldering wall and Top rope/Lead climbing wall which has 180 sqm of climbing surface a maximum height of 8.37m and maximum overhang of 2.7m with 16 Routes on main wall to challenge all users.


    This is slightly outside the town centre at Harpur Hill.

    In Buxton there's the New Bodies gym which is about a mile from the halls of residence www.newbodiesgym.co.uk

    Hi Mike,

    I'm going to Derby and on the same course as you too! I was wondering about the gym, I googled a bit and it said that it has been done up lately. I plan on spending a fair amount of my spare time in the gym too!

    Sorry, I've only just seen this.

    Thanks Derby Uni, I've checked out New Bodies Gym and it looks pretty good, hoping the uni gym is just as good! I heard the uni gym is only £12.50 a month which is great value!

    Hi Corgi,

    Great! Maybe we can be gym buddies? I'm house sharing with a mate who is on the same course and is also keen on gymming. See you in September!

    Just a quick update, we went into Buxton uni yesterday and the guy at the desk told us that the gym would be opening in a few weeks time and that students would be told how to join up during enrolment.

    Also there's a 25m council pool over the road from the dome where you get a student discount.
