the new semester has just begun and the Institute of Sports is more than happy to either get to know you or welcome you again. Once again we have bundled up a healthy balance of sports and pastimes to get you ready for the future exams. Whether you are more of a lone wolf, a team player, want to improve your fitness, train your strength and endurance, or are just looking for some relaxation – you will definitely find something suitable for your needs in our sports program.
From August 29 on, you can challenge and nurture your body in plenty of different courses and workshops. You can find the exact offerings, registration periods and timetables in the Sportprogramm 29.08. – 04.12.2016 in the download section of our homepage. To spontaneously check courses you can also use the Uni Mannheim app.
As always we have added many new activities to our program. We’ve got especially good news for all the early birds: our gym in D2 now opens at 7am during weekdays! In regards to body fitness we offer many new functional fitness classes, like “HIIT” or “TRX©Cross”. For all dance enthusiasts among you, we now got new courses, like Swing and Bollywood-Dance, as well as new workshops.
Since this semester a YogaCard is mandatory if you want to participate in yoga classes. Further information can be found here. Participation in spinning classes now also requires you to buy a SpinningCard. Fans of mental exercise should also be excited about our new, weekly Go beginners’ class, while fans of outdoor sports can prove their skills in track and cross cycling.
Finally, we want to remind you that you can book the sports facilities run by the Institute of Sports in the Friedrichspark. The facilities offer a small soccer field, which also serves as two basketball courts, as well as a beach volleyball court. Students, especially student associations, clubs and societies, as well as university chairs also have the opportunity to subscribe for a weekly spot at the facilities free of charge for the duration of the semester. Be advised that the application for this semester’s subscription is open from 05.09. – 14.09.2016.
So, go ahead and have a look at our sports program to see which courses suit you best this fall semester! We are looking forward to meeting you!
All the best,
your Institute of Sports.
