Gym

Introduction

We have what many consider to be the best college gym at the University. Located in the basement of the Abraham building on the main College site, it is open 9:00 – 21:00 (pre-booking only). The gym is equipped with a variety of cardiovascular and weight machines, and has an excellent selection of free weights and high-quality weightlifting equipment. There are also kettlebells, punch and kick bags, mats, and other fitness equipment available.

Covid-19 Measures

To keep gym users safe we have introduced a new booking system with 10 bookable slots per hour. These are one-hour time slots and only one can be booked per person per day (you are not permitted to bring a guest with you). 
 
Hand sanitising stations and equipment cleaning products can be found within the gym, so please ensure you keep the machines clean after each use. We ask that you hand sanitise when entering and leaving the gym as well as throughout your gym session.  
 
Machines have been spread out in order to keep a saft distance between users, so please do not move them.
 
Please note that the showers are currently unavailable.
 
**GYM WILL NOT BE OPEN UNTIL MONDAY 12th OCTOBER. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK SLOTS BEFORE THEN**
 
 
The last available slot will be 20:00-21:00 after which the gym will be locked, checked and set up for the following day.
 
For any booking issues, please contact Andikan on gym@linacre.ox.ac.uk

All new members must attend an induction before using any gym equipment. Inductions will take approximately 15 minutes; you will not be asked to perform any exercises, so no special kit is required. To schedule an induction, please contact the Gym Manager (gym@linacre.ox.ac.uk)
