Saints Sport Coronavirus Update

We understand the importance of people being active and the particular role sport and exercise can have on our physical and mental wellbeing and will continue a phased reopening of our facilities and services as restrictions are lifted, and when it is safe to do so. This will follow the latest Scottish Government advice, Sports Governing Body guidelines, and in a way that helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The wellbeing, health and safety of all our staff, student and community members is a priority for Saints Sport. 

The Stay Home | Stay Fit campaign was launched to provide a programme of workouts designed to help students, staff and the local community engage in physical activity from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Our team of Saints Fitness instructors prepared new content each week, with a selection of classes on offer to help keep sessions fresh and appealing.
