There is a gym at Storthes Hall Park and this is free for Ashenhurst students to use. You will just need to catch the 398/399 bus from the Queensgate bus stop outside the university Oastler Building. Your First Bus pass that you purchased for the Ashenhurst shuttle bus service will work for this Storthes Hall Park service, alternatively you can pay in cash per journey if you haven't purchased a bus pass.
Gym membership is free for all students staying with DIGS, you will need to complete a gym form before we are able to allow you access to the gym. You can pick up the questionnaire from the DIGS accommodation office.
Once you have completed the questionnaire we will give you a 24 hour access fob, so you will be able to work out at any time!
The gym is unmanned however if you are not sure how to use the equipment or want to have targeted fitness sessions, please feel free to book a session with our free personal trainer, he will be on site at 4.30pm every Wednesday and Friday. These sessions are booked via the personal trainer’s Facebook page (Kieran DIGS).
If you are interested in more organised fitness sessions keep an eye out on your monthly events calendar, we have a range of weekly events from walking and zumba to bootcamp and football. Some of these sessions may be run in The Venue, so please check your events calendar for details, if you are not sure where to go please just ask us!
You will be able to collect stamps for each fitness class you attend, attend 30 or more classes throughout the year and you will be able to attend Tough Mudder with us for free!
Any faults with gym equipment should be reported on the DIGS Support Portal to allow us to repair them.
