Get Moving activities
Discover free, fun, and low-barrier ways to get moving by yourself or with others at UBC. Whether you're just starting out in fitness, getting back to moving after a while, or finding new ways to move, there are lots of ways to get some activity into your day.
BirdCoop Fitness Centre
The BirdCoop is located in the Student Recreation Centre (SRC) and offers resistance training equipment, cardio equipment, spin classes, boot camps, and personal trainers to help you reach your personal fitness and wellness goals.
Classes and programs
Options include yoga, martial arts, Pilates, Zumba, and kickboxing. Many classes and programs are hosted at the Student Recreation Centre (SRC) and occur as frequently as three times per week.
Leagues are term-long, occur once per week, and are an easy way to integrate regular exercise into your schedule while staying in touch with friends.
Have fun and live active the UBC way. Meet new people and break a sweat by participating in annual events like the Day of the Longboat, the Great Trek, Lace Up for Kids, and Storm the Wall.
