Fit o meter

Did you know that a fit o meter course was built outside the fence of the athletics track, which is also completely free to use? The fit o meter is a 500 meter long walking or walking course around the VUB athletics track with 8 practice stations on the way. Instruction boards at the various stations indicate which exercises you can perform. You can complete the course on 3 levels: green (beginner), blue (good basic condition) or red (advanced athlete).

If you want a full-fledged / general training in which the 5 basic characteristics - strength, agility, coordination, speed and execution - are addressed, choose your level and complete the fit o meter. In total you will do 16 different exercises, 2 per practice station. Between 2 stations you can walk, jog or walk at your own pace.
