It’s not just students’ brains that need training during university. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help students sleep deeper, study harder and feel stronger.
A local business has invested a significant sum of money to help build a fully equipped gym for the student residents of Powis Place, managed by Home for Students, in Aberdeen. The gym will be opened this week with special yoga sessions and fitness classes which are already booked up as the residents are keen to try out the new facilities. The students are expressing their enthusiasm for the gym and are extremely impressed with how much equipment and space the gym has.
For cardio there are spin bikes, rowers, treadmills and elliptical machines. For getting those gains, students can make the most of the weight machines, weight racks, punch bags and resistant bands – alongside kettle bells, medicine balls and sandbags.
With no expense spared, all of the equipment is top quality thanks to the significant £370,000 investment. Students will never go hungry either thanks to a long list of healthy snacks available to them on-site.
The new facilities will be free to use for all residents and no-one appreciates free things more than students! For this reason Homes for Students have full confidence that the new gym will make Powis Place a more popular location than ever for student accommodation.
Head of Operations at Homes for Students, Simon West has added “We think it’s incredible that we can offer the students at Powis Place the support and encouragement to lead healthy, active lives while at university. We look forward to exploring further ways in which we can support our university residents and give them the best student experience possible”
