DMUactive is a free weekly recreational sport and fitness programme that runs throughout the academic year and is open to all staff and students at DMU. The programme creates an inclusive environment that is free from commitment for those who want to exercise, keep fit, play sport and look after their wellbeing. Whether you are returning to sport / fitness activity or have never taken part before, our sessions cater for all abilities.


What sessions are available?

As part of the weekly timetable, there are a range of free sport and fitness sessions, from Basketball to Zumba, there is something for everyone! Take a look at the current paused DMUactive timetable here.

Lockdown update

Since the last DMUsport update in December 2020, England has entered into a National lockdown with the advice to Stay at Home.

As a result, DMUactive are unable to deliver face-to-face sport activity until at least mid-February. There is no certain date when restrictions will be lifted, and all sport and leisure indoor and outdoor facilities are closed.

In the meantime, we want to continue to help the DMU community to stay active and look after their wellbeing so we will be continuing to deliver our free virtual offer that is open to all DMU staff and students. There are three strands to our offer, helping us to ensure we provide something for everyone. Take a look at our virtual offer below.

DMUactive Virtual Timetable

Due to face to face delivery not being able to happen, we have developed a virtual timetable in conjunction with DMU Leisure. Similar to our regular weekly timetable, our virtual weekly timetable will consist of a range of free live sessions that all DMU staff and students can get involved with. Take a look at what sessions you can get involved with on the current DMUactive virtual timetable.

Through the #KeepDMUactive initiative, that was launched during the first national lockdown, we will be providing DMU staff and students with free workout videos that you can do when best works for you. From Pilates to Zumba to fitness home workouts, there will be something for everyone! Take a look at #KeepDMUactive content here.

How to with DMUactive

The ‘How to with DMUactive’ initiative has the aim of helping participants to develop their skills / knowledge of a particular activity and encourage them to keep active whilst we are unable to deliver face to face sessions. From how to do a chest pass to how to hold a badminton racket, our DMUactive and Active League activators will be creating content that you can easily follow. Take a look at the content across our social media platforms; Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
