The Gym

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

The gym at Brooks House contains a wide range of equipment consisting of mainly strength-training equipment, including a squat rack, medicine balls and a wide range of weighs.

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 Refounders House, and the Brooks House Gym via the Brooks House reception.
