Nutrition and personal fitness

There are lots of ways to stay fit and healthy at university. 

Our health and fitness programmes cater for all levels of fitness and nutrition knowledge. We offer group personal training and nutritional advice through our MMU Fit and Healthy U programmes.


HealthyU is back for term 2, and this time the practical cooking workshops will run on a pay-as-you-go basis for 45-minute sessions.

HealthyU is a series of fun, practical cooking workshops running out of the brand new Grow Café in the North Atrium of the Business school. The sessions take place on Wednesdays, 16:30 – 17:15 and Fridays, 12:00 – 12:45. As well as a practical cooking session, you will be able to take part in a number of health and wellbeing sessions such as yoga, mindful meditation, Pilates, breathe and relax and Zumba.

The programme includes healthy tips and tricks alongside nutrition and wellbeing advice.
