Active Lifestyles

Our Active Lifestyles 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.

Active Lifestyles 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 Active Lifestyles 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.
