Fitness & Performance

Sport & Rec's Fitness & Performance team is focused on creating engaging programs centered on the unique needs of U of T's students, staff and community.

Whether you are starting a new chapter in your pursuit of fitness, training for elite performance or are somewhere in between, we provide integrated support for your journey. 

 

Building Closures

In response to the university's enhanced measures regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all buildings operated by U of T Sport and Rec are closed to students, members of the public, staff and faculty until further notice. All athletic, physical activity and recreation programs and services within these spaces are cancelled.

But now more than ever, it's important to stay active! Physical activity has huge benefits for mental and physical health and academic performance. So while our buildings are closed, we're delivering physical activity programs virtually.

VIRTUAL PROGRAMS

Starting April 6, we're launching daily online workouts that you can do at home without special equipment or with household items! Stream the workouts on Instagram Live or on Zoom and sweat with us!

After each workout, we'll upload the video from the Zoom session to our Youtube channel so you can still get your sweat on even if you missed the live broadcast.

No matter where you're starting from, you'll find a group fitness or team training program that works with your goals and your lifestyle. 

Group Fitness


Led by friendly coaches, our group fitness classes are an incredible way to break a sweat and build your confidence. We believe that everyone's always learning, so our classes vary in intensity and are designed to support a range of experience levels. Group fitness classes are available to U of T students and members at no extra charge.

In addition to popular classes like Aquafit and yoga, we're introducing a few new ones for 2020:

JOGA

 JOGA is a movement system that focuses on improving mobility and stability through different postures. A more athletic style of yoga, it incorporates both dynamic and static stretching techniques and breathing exercises to increase your range of motion and improve your mind-body connection. 

Leave feeling calm, centered and refreshed, ready to conquer the rest of your day.
