Live fitness classes from UCD Sport & Fitness

Zoom classes ending June 4th - facilities reopening

As UCD Sport and Fitness will re-open for Staff and Student Members from Tuesday, 8 June 2021, we are switching our resources back to in-person activities and Zoom classes will end on Friday, 4 June.

We hope that you have enjoyed the virtual classes and we look forward to welcoming you to UCD Sport and Fitness in person.

Zoom Fitness classes (ending Friday 4th June)

Following on from our live yoga pilot towards the end of last trimester, and with ongoing restrictions on ‘in-person’ classes, Health UCD and Culture & Engagement have again teamed-up with UCD Sport & Fitness to offer you an expanded range of live classes.

UCD Sports & Fitness instructors will lead 15 live classes per week via zoom, covering the following:

  • Yoga – find your center, calm your mind and feel refreshed
  • Pilates – strengthen your core and improve your body’s range of motion
  • Body Blast – a full body workout to tone and shape
  • Body Conditioning – workouts focusing on muscular strength and endurance
  • HIIT Training – High Intensity Interval Training to improve your cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength
  • Cardio Blast – high heart rate, high intensity cardiovascular training
  • BLT’s (Bums, Legs & Tums) – Tone and shape your abs, quads and gluts with these easy to follow core focused workouts

All you need to do is register to receive the zoom link, enough space to move around while taking the class (2m x 2m recommended) and some water. Certain classes may be enhanced if you have an exercise mat, yoga block or dumbbells but instructors will offer ideas as alternatives to these items if you don’t have access. Classes last 30 to 45 minutes.

Please remember these few points when setting up for your virtual classes:

  • Use the zoom link issued as the login for all classes at the class start time.
  • When you log in, you will be placed in a waiting room and a staff member will admit you, we may be able to admit you 5 minutes after the class starts.
  • Please note that other members will be able to see your name in attendance and will be able to see you or hear you if you turn on your camera or microphone.
  • At the start of the class please "pin" the instructors screen so you can see this at full size on your device.
  • Ensure you have enough space to safely complete workouts in the space you choose.
  • Classes are capped at 300 attendees, in the unlikely event that a class is full we will allocate spaces on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • Some classes may be recorded for publishing on other platforms. Recordings will focus on the instructor. In order to avoid being recorded, we advise participants to keep their cameras and microphones off.

The class timetable will be published fortnightly.

In addition, classes will be recorded and available to you to replay if you miss a session via the UCD Sport & Fitness Wellness Hub.

Note: We recommend that you consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. You should be in good physical condition and be able to participate in the exercise. You should understand that when participating in any exercise or exercise program, there is the possibility of physical injury. If you engage in this exercise or exercise program, you agree that you do so at your own risk.
