Tired of being tired? Bored of bad skin?
Get healthy! It’s the solution to ALL of your problems (almost). As well as improving your fitness, metabolism, complexion etc, a healthier lifestyle improves your mental wellbeing and makes it easier to focus on work.
We’re launching a new way of getting healthy through exercise at LSE: Active LifeStylE.
What’s the idea?
You can sign up for a huge variety of events, depending on what type of exercise you prefer. We have beginner courses, drop-in sessions, one-off events, or fun and friendly league matches.
It’s starting this month, so the Freshers’ Fair is the perfect chance to sign up!
Every session will take place either on campus or in central London.
Sound tempting? Come chat to us at the Active LifestylE stand at the Freshers’ Fair – outside the Saw Swee Hock building on Thursday and Friday!
Some of the awesome stuff we’ve got in store includes:
You’ll be hearing lots more about Active Lifestyle (#ActiveLSE) in the coming weeks but if you have any questions or ideas, just drop us a line! Email James Ralph or tweet@lsesu with the hashtag#ActiveLSE!
