University of Warwick begins the journey to become UK’s most active campus

Set in a beautiful, tranquil woodland area of the university campus, Warwick’s Sports and Wellness Hub is part of a £49 million investment into the new centre, associated sports and physical activity facilities across the campus. The University of Warwick has partnered with Technogym as their official supplier of fitness and wellness solutions, working with them to design the new world-class sports facility.
The Sports and Wellness Hub is truly exceptional, with a 16,000 sq. ft fitness suite that houses an impressive 230 workout stations, a 15-metre climbing wall featuring a speed wall (one of only two in the country), and a 12-lane, 25-metre swimming pool. The gym itself has a modern feel to it, with large windows creating a light and spacious environment that’s inviting and caters for members of all ages and abilities.

Sector Leading Gym Design

Technogym worked with Warwick to ensure that the fitness suite was equipped with the latest state-of-the-art solutions, including the signature Artis line, the first fully connected range of strength and cardio equipment, which provides users with a completely personalised training experience. The innovative Unity platform, available on all cardio pieces, gives members access to engaging digital experiences, and even the ability to log into their own personal content, such as Netflix, at any time during their workout.
The Hub has also dedicated zones to Skill Line, a dynamic range of products designed with performance athletes in mind. Skill Line focuses on speed, power, agility and stamina training, and the University of Warwick has invested in the full range of equipment, including the latest addition, Skillrun 7000.
Lisa Dodd-Mayne, Director of Sport & Active Communities at the University of Warwick, comments: “We are delighted to be partnering with a world-leading brand in Technogym and to be able to deliver such an exceptional experience to our members. Technogym have supported us throughout the process of designing and developing the Sports and Wellness Hub, ensuring that innovation is at the heart of the project and delivering state-of-the-art equipment throughout”.

Building an Active Community

The University of Warwick has an ambitious vision, to build the most active University campus community in the UK by 2020. It’s important to note that this objective is not only to meet the needs of the university’s students and staff, but also to support the local community and area. By using the Technogym mywellness cloud ecosystem, Warwick will be able to engage the whole campus and raise awareness of wellness and activity tracking.
The university is also working on a series of active lifestyle initiatives outside of the Sports and Wellness Hub, with a mission to increase activity across the whole campus. Some examples of these initiatives include active meetings for staff, and paths highlighted throughout the grounds for use as running routes and wellness walks.

“Our facility is for everyone – from students and staff to the local community, we cater for everyone with no exception and Technogym’s world class equipment helps us to deliver on this promise”, adds Lisa.

“The University of Warwick is a leading institution, and we are excited to support them in their amazing vision of an active campus. Warwick’s vision aligns perfectly with Technogym’s brand and wellness values, and their innovative approach is something that we are proud to support with our unique Technogym Digital Ecosystem, able to offer each single user a fully personal training experience”, says Nerio Alessandri, Technogym President and CEO.
