Free Fit o Meter/ Ipitup exercise bench

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.

 

Ipitup exercise bench

On the campus in Jette you can alternatively find an Ipitup exercise bench in the lawn between the Tempus and Basic Fit. 

An Ipitup exercise bench is more than just a sofa. It is a meeting and experience space that invites you to move. After all, the bench is equipped with 6 different fitness elements on which or on which you can do more than 250 body exercises.
An information panel clarifies which exercises you can do.
