Mad March Specials

The UC RecCentre specialises in fitness services and classes for students, but our doors are open for members of the community to join in and experience the unique atmostphere of the UC gym on campus.
Getting active is one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing, which can positively assist you in creating good mental health.
