Health and Vitality

A good health is a condition to be able to exercise!

The range of Health & Vitality is aimed at keeping or making students and staff vital. The movement guidelines of the Knowledge Centre of Sports are the main focus. Our offer consists of: events, courses, workshops and advice, all with the aim of being able to exercise enough. If the body does not allow you to carry out your daily activities for a while, we offer advice and can refer you to a care provider. Furthermore, we find it important to be preventive and therefore we offer various programmes to keep you vital. 

Partners: Sportplein Eindhoven and Topsupport-St-Anna.

(Online) Fit Breaks

A Fit Break is a 15 minute stretch class at the workplace. Experience the Fit Break and feel what it does to your body.

Give your body and mind a break!
Special trained SSC- instructors visit your workplace and offer you and your colleagues a short program full of relaxation-, strength- and stretch exercises in small groups of 5-10 people. The program focusses on your shoulders, neck, and back and can be adapted to the individual needs of the group. The program takes place during working hours, and can be done in your working clothes. For 10 weeks, you will do different exercises with and without small sports equipment. After 15 minutes your head will be free again and you will continue work with a boost of motivation and concentration.

ACE Your Journey

The “ACE Your Journey” project sponsored by Active Campus Europe (ACE) is a 6-week introductory exercise program for students (autumn and spring) and employees (spring) looking to receive extra support in becoming more active. Participating in sports not only helps you to get fit, it also helps you to improve your social life, to build confidence and to give you an advantage in learning new skills. Therefore, we warmly welcome new non-sports card holders who would like to kickstart their journey to discover how a healthy lifestyle can transform you inside out. Let our top coaches and instructors inspire you! The SSC offers basic-level health activities for groups of students and individual exercisers.
