The Gym

We are the only Durham University College to have more than one gym. Our Parson’s Field site is a cardio gym, consisting of two treadmills, two rowing machines and two bikes, amongst other small equipment. 

The gym on South Bailey contains a wide range of equipment consisting of mainly strength-training equipment, including a squat rack, medicine balls and a wide range of weights.

Both gyms are managed by the Gym Manager, who is elected in Easter Term. The Gym Manager reports to the JCR President, has a budget, and is responsible for the induction of students and maintenance of equipment in both gyms.

You can contact the Gym Manager for an induction on: Inductions usually take place at the beginning of the academic term, but please get in contact if you missed them. You can access the Parson’s Field gym via Refounder’s House; South Bailey gym is located in 8 South Bailey.
