cardiovascular fitness equipment

SPORT at The University of Manchester invites you to try out the latest in cardiovascular fitness equipment on Tuesday 21 July, 4-7pm, at the Fitness Suite, Armitage Sports Centre, Fallowfield.

The Armitage Centre has recently purchased new treadmills and cross trainers (information below) and would like staff at The University of Manchester to be the first to try them out, together with the other cardiovascular and resistance equipment.

Ever wondered how you could improve your workout?

Along with a free fitness suite session we will have qualified fitness instructors on hand to advise you about getting the most out of your workout, using the machines correctly and putting together a programme that works for you.

Fitness testing will also be available so you can find out what areas provide opportunities for improvement and also benchmark your fitness before embarking on an exercise programme

To take part in this event please bring along your staff card and show it at Armitage Reception - there is no need to pre-book.

Please note that there will be a photographer at this event.
