NEW: ‘UOP Gym’ the app to keep you motivated!

New for 2017: our ‘UOP Gym’ app can help you achieve your fitness goals!

  • Looking to get fit whilst you study? Our new app can help keep you motivated!
  • Our new app contains a database of over 2,500 exercises and pre-made workouts, with updates and new content being added regularly.
  • Work out alongside our 3D-animated personal trainer, who will show you exactly how to do each exercise – either at home or in our facilities!

Members will already be familiar with our UOP Sport app, helping them to book classes and courts instantly and easily. From September 2017, we are introducing another app titled UOP Gym to enhance the gym experience for our members.

UOP Gym can be used by our members to create workouts and nutrition plans, set goals, track progress, take part in challenges and communicate with other members. Our instructors can also work with members one-to-one through this platform, benefiting our personal training services.

The app is available currently in the Google Play store to download, but it is also available as a desktop platform too.

Exercises and Workouts

  • You can follow one of our pre-made workout routines, or create your own based on whatever muscle group you want to work on.
  • Over 2,500 animated exercises are available, so you’ll know exactly how to perform an exercise, or how to use machines at the gym. Written exercise instructions are also available.
  • There is a variety of workouts available for men and women and in a range of difficulties; whether you’re a beginner or at an advanced level.

  • Set reminders so you never miss a workout.

Challenges

Who can use it and what does it cost?

From September 2017, UOP Gym will be available to all members, free of charge, as part of their membership. Access to this service would usually cost £4.99 per month if you were to subscribe with an external service provider.


Do I have to use this new app?

To get the most from your membership, we highly recommend activating your account, downloading the app, and giving it a try! We will be using this app over the next year to build on our gym community, provide fun challenges for our members, and help you achieve your goals.

Members who wish to use our Personal Training services, or have a custom Workout Programmes catered to them will be asked to use UOP Gym as the platform to communicate with their instructor and log their workouts.

You can choose not to set up an account if you wish. We will still use UOP Sport as our main app for booking classes, courts, news, communications and more.


How do I activate my account and download the app?

All current members should shortly be receiving an email with the information they need to activate their account and download the app. We are hoping to have this e-mail sent to current members by early November.

New members will be given information on how to activate their account and download the app when purchasing a new membership with us.

If you suspect you haven’t received an e-mail yet, please get in touch with a member of our staff team: [email protected] / 02392 84 5555

Once you have activated your account, you can download the app and access all of UOP Gym’s functions and services.
