Athletics & Recreation
Take a break from your studies and unwind with fitness classes, organize a pick-up game with friends, or work out with a personal trainer in our state-of-the-art fitness facility. If you are interested in competitive or high performance sport, why not try out for one of Queen's varsity teams or clubs?
Whatever you do to get active and stay healthy, and no matter your skill level, Queen's has an athletic option to help you get at the recommended 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week.
Students participate in more than 30 different recreation clubs ranging from archery and trampoline to squash and tennis, along with multiple disciplines of dancing, martial arts, and gymnastics.
Fitness and Wellness Programs
Queen’s offers more than 50 fitness classes per week such as yoga, salsa dancing, spin, and swimming.
Trouble deciding what to take? Try fitness classes for free during Fitness Free-For-All week in September.
Need help developing an individual fitness program? Book a consultation with a professional trainer – they willgive you the motivation you need to keep going!
