Physical Activity

Our Physical Activity Team cares about healthy exercising on a busy student schedule. This dynamic team of students adopts a peer to peer education method to teach and inspire students and staff on campus about physical activity and exercise. Come discover Canada's Physical Activity Guidelines, how to remain active during exams, how to avoid sedentary behaviours and much more.

Meet our team during our event ActiveU for free advice from a certified personal trainer. See the upcoming events tab on the main page for more details.
