Here at London Met, we want to help promote fitness and exercise in your daily life. As part of our Fitness and Wellbeing programme, we have a modern gym with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and offer a wide range of classes from the recreational to the holistic. We're here to help you on your journey to better fitness, health and wellbeing.

The gym facilities at London Met include the main gym located in the Science Centre (Holloway Campus) and the exercise room in Calcutta House (Aldgate Campus).

All gym sessions need to be pre-booked online and can be booked up to a week in advance. So please book your gym session on the day or before coming to campus and show evidence of the booking confirmation at the gym reception in order to access our gym facilities.

Fitness & Wellbeing

Our Fitness and Wellbeing programme for London Met students and staff is designed to help build exercise and fitness into your daily life.

We have an extensive programme of fitness classes with a variety of exercise, holistic classes and recreational activities to choose from.

Fitness and Wellbeing at London Met is a great opportunity to get involved in sporting and fitness activities that are fun and build your overall health and fitness levels.

Benefits of our programme

  • Be happy! Exercise decreases stress hormones and increases endorphins, therefore exercise makes you happy.
  • Think better! It's a good workout for the brain as it increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain and the chemicals that help cognition.
  • Gain confidence! Exercise helps you feel better about yourself and reduces stress – very useful around exam time.
  • Get healthy! It helps to maintain a healthy weight in combination with a balanced diet.
