Workout descriptions

Descriptions of CampusSport’s shifts are available on this page. Classes are divided into levels from 1 to 3, depending on how challenging the class is. Levels are marked in each description. 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. You can participate in all classes and shifts also after the season has started, you do not need to start going when the season starts.

All the equipment used during the shifts is available in the sports halls. You only need to bring clothes that are suitable for exercising, indoor shoes, a water bottle and a sweat towel. It can be chilly in our sports halls so you can bring a long-sleeved shirt and woolen socks. We play music during most of the classes. You can ask the instructor to adjust the volume, if needed. You can also wear earplugs.
