For all fitness lovers studying in Derby, The Uni of Derby gym can be found at the University of Derby sports centre.

This state-of-the-arts centre has recently undergone a massive transformation — a whooping £10.8 million has been injected into it. Fully equipped with exceptional facilities at your fingertips; including a superb fitness suite, 3G pitches, tennis courts and climbing wall. Students have a fantastic choice of activities to choose from.

Uni Of Derby Gym

Undeniably, the most popular aspect of the sports centre is the Uni of Derby gym. This fantastic space is packed with all the very latest fitness equipment that will help you reach your goals. Whether you prefer a heart-thumping cardio workout, pumping iron in the free weights area or working the resistance machines, they’ve got you covered.

Your Physical and Mental health

If you’re not a regular gym-goer, just bear in mind that student life can get a bit hectic sometimes, so it’s important to look after your physical and mental health — they go hand in hand. If you keep your physical health in check, then your mental wellbeing will thank you for it!

To help navigate the chaos that comes with being a student, there are various things we can do regularly. Going to the gym or engaging in some form of physical activity will not only de-stress you, but it will give you that much needed boost of energy that will undoubtably help your overall performance and improve your quality of life. A simple workout will get that heart pumping and your body oxygenated, releasing endorphins — those happy chemicals!

Group Fitness Studio

We also appreciate that ‘gym-anxiety’ is a very real thing. It can be daunting especially when you’re new to student life. If that’s the case, then why not ease into it with a group fitness session. This will allow you to grow your confidence and meet like-minded people.

The Uni of Derby gym also provides two group fitness studios that play host to a fabulous variety of classes. Whether you’re after an intense BODYPUMP class or a more relaxing Yoga or Pilates session, you’re sure to find a class for you. There really is something for everyone, whatever your age or fitness level.

Other Facilities

The University of Derby Sports Centre also provides a sports hall, playing host to a huge variety of sports and activities. These include badminton, basketball, 5-a-side football and volleyball, while it also comes with cricket nets.

You will also have access to an extensive climbing wall facility, which includes a main wall, bouldering section, lattice board and finger boards for training. It really is a playground for the active!

Lastly, it has an artificial football pitch. With two outdoor 3G synthetic pitches, the upper pitch is marked out for 11-a-side and 5-a-side football, while the lower pitch is marked out for Rugby.

Marlix Student Living is situated in close proximity to the sports centre, with plenty of public transport routes available. Contact us to find out about room availability. 

The Sports Centre is open to students, staff and the wider community all year round. You can join as a member from as little as £99 for the year, but many of the activities and facilities are also available on a pay-as-you-go basis.
