If you’re feeling guilty at home when you’ve got no lectures and can’t face any more procrastinating, then get out and start building the temple! The first port of call if you’re a Uni of Leeds student is The Edge, a recently built, multi-million pound sports facility, but if that’s too far away you there are loads of other gyms or other ways to keep fit in Leeds. We’ve selected some of our top picks below:
THE EDGE, UNI OF LEEDS
If you’re a Student of Leeds University and staying their accomodation, you automatically get a free Edge membership! Non-residents can also get memberships and also members of the public. Recently built facilities also includes Swimming Pool, Climbing Wall and much more. You’ll enjoy the Edge much more when you’re there out of choice and not doing an exam in the sports hall!
