CampusSport’s sports tutors are volunteer peer exercisers who encourage the students and staff members of the universities in Turku to exercise more. You can ask a tutor to present our gyms or sports halls to you. Tutors organise events and excursions.

For those who have paid CampusSport’s sports fee

Sport shifts

The shifts in CampusSport’s schedule are divided into levels from 1 to 3, depending on how challenging the shift is. You can check the level of each class from the page Workout descriptions. After having paid the sports fee, you are welcome to try which classes suit you. During the classes, you can do the workout according to your personal physical abilities. You can ask the instructor for alternative movements and rest if needed.
