what is active@brunel?
Active@Brunel is a programme of activities aimed at helping Brunel students to get, and to stay, active in a way that works for them. It is made up of classes such as yoga, pilates and boxercise, alongside sessions such as pole dancing and dance fitness.
There are also drop in sport sessions, so if you don't want to commit to joining a Team Brunel sports club, you can go along to one of the weekly drop in sessions and just turn up and play for an hour or so each week (if you can't make it one week, it doesn't matter at all, this is a low commitment offer!).
You can see the full timetable here, and book on to classes here .
Football and Futsal Leagues
Fancy something a bit more competitive? Active@Brunel also has leagues; 11 a side football. 6 a side football and futsal, so grab your coursemates, or housemates and enter a team for a guaranteed weekly fixture on campus, no travel to away matches required!
How much does it cost to take part?
Just £40 for the entire year! Once you have purchased your annual Union Sport Membership for £40 you can take part in as many active@brunel activities and classes as you want for free, nothing else to pay - you can also join as many Team Brunel clubs as you like, included within this membership. We think this is such a good deal, given that to attend an exercise class outside of this might cost you over £15+!
You can buy your Union Sport Membership at the bottom of this page, or alternatively, pop in to our Union Reception on campus. Not sure year if active@brunel is for you? Get in touch with our active@brunel adminstrator and arrange a free trial first!
Do you have to be 'sporty' to take part in active@brunel sessions? i don't have any equipment, can I still come?
Active@Brunel is for everyone, there is no pressure, no need for experience and it is not competitive, it is just about getting more active and improving your mental and physical health in a way that works for you.
Don't worry, all equipment is provided so just turn up in some clothing that makes you feel comfortable.
