Moving at home keeps me in balance

Healthy at home

Even though we are sitting at home we can still move! The Tilburg University Sports Center has put on this page all kinds of possibilities to exercise at home.
You will also find tips on staying healthy at the bottom of the page.

This page will be updated with new information, so take a look on a regular basis.

Live lessons

Fortunately, more sports can be played outside again! That's why the Sports Center is discontinuing online live classes for the most part. However, we will continue to offer CANS and yoga.. Everyone can participate, even if you do not have a membership. 

The online live lessons are accessible to everyone . During these lessons, the instructors can give directions to perform the exercises as well as possible. The strength of these lessons is that interaction is also possible and any questions can be asked. Our preference is that everyone keeps his/her camera on during the whole lesson. If you do not like this, you can indicate this at the start of the lesson. Have fun!

Step-to-get-fit

Exercise more; start with a first step! Walking is an easy way to boost your health, energy, and mood. The benefits of walking are endless; it improves your immune system, reduces stress, and is fun to do together, but you can also go out on your own. To give you, as an employee, more guidance on how you can incorporate walking into your daily life, some suggestions/ideas (Dutch only):

Nutritional advice

Do you need nutritional advice during the Corona Crisis? You can still visit our fitness section!

Many people's energy needs have decreased because you exercise less, for example. You don't cycle to work anymore, your sports frequency has decreased. In the first few weeks you will hardly notice this. If you sit at home for a longer period of time, it does become interesting to take a look at your eating pattern.

If you would like help with this, please send an email to fitness@tilburguniversity.edu. They will be happy to look with you and give you personal advice.

For whom? Everyone has a sports subscription.
