CampusSport’s sports tutors are volunteer peer exercisers who encourage the students and staff members of the universities in Turku to exercise more.
Exercise with the sports tutors
- Tutors organise events and excursions. Whenever there are upcoming events, information about them is available on the page Events.
- You can get to know CampusSport’s services with the sports tutors. Ask a tutor to join you in a sports shift or to introduce the gyms.
- Tutors support you in your exercising endeavors as sports buddies. Are you interested in starting to exercise but need some encouragement? Tutors will help you get started. They will present different exercise possibilities, help you find your own sport or can just join you for a nice walk. Sports tutors are our customers (not personal trainers) who want to help others to find the joy of exercising. Sports buddy service is aimed at the students and staff members of the universities in Turku and is free of charge. You do not need to pay the sports fee in order to use the service. If you would like to have a sports buddy, please contact our sports tutors and tell them a little about yourself (your background and that you would like to have a sports buddy). You can also tell what kind of exercise you are interested in – but it’s perfectly okay if you do not know yet.
- Sports tutors have their own weekly sports shift called Just for fun. All the students of the universities in Turku are welcome to join the shift for free, you do not need to pay the sports fee in order to participate. We will enjoy exercising in good company and focus on having fun without competing or comparing. In the shift we will try different sports and the participants get to choose what they would like to do. You do not need to have previous experience in exercising. You are welcome to participate in the shift regularly or every now and then, everyone is always welcome. The shift takes place in Educarium gymnastics hall (Assistentinkatu 5) every Tuesday at 7pm-7.50pm between 5 September and 12 December 2023.
