Archon Fitness Challenge Results 2018


Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Archon Fitness Challenge!

Winners have been calculated using the Archon assessment calculations, taking into account an individual’s metrics such as; height, weight, age and more, to ensure that everyone can be scored on one league table in a fair and accurate way. This ensures that a woman weighing 55kg with a back squat of 100kg would score higher than a male who weighs 100kg with a back squat of 140kg as she performs at a higher rate and that older participants competing in events are ranked equally when competing against 17-25 year-olds.

Overall winners were:

Top Scoring Female Student Participants: 

  1. Rosie Blount
  2. Hannah Morton
  3. Katie James

Facility Updates & Campus Car Parking

Gym Floor Maintenance

The lower extended weights area will be closed from 19th March 2018 for two weeks for essential repair and maintenance work.

 

From Monday 28th November, it will no longer be possible to park under the Cherry Trees in the Orange Zone, however plenty of alternative parking will still be available within the multi-storey car park and in The Edge car park.

Furthermore, from Monday 12th December, traffic will be diverted around the campus, controlled by temporary traffic lights.

This change to parking is due to the construction of Nexus – the University’s £40m innovation and enterprise centre.

Win £50 Amazon and Refresh vouchers

Balancing life survey complete to win £50 amazon and refresh voucers - text on a picture of someone walking on grass

Help us to support your activity and wellbeing on campus by filling out the 2018 Balancing Life Survey. Plus you could win a £50 Amazon Voucher or Refresh Card!

Last year’s Balancing Life Survey found that 77% of staff and students at the University of Leeds are active, with 60% of the activity they take part in happening on campus. A survey of this type had never been completed before and it gave great insight into the activity and wellbeing levels of staff and students. Take a look at the full results online here.

The insight gained from last year’s survey has raised the importance of staff and students health and wellbeing on campus, and this has had some fantastic results;

  • The Student Education Services have appointed two full time interns with a focus on improving staff health and wellbeing.
  • The University of Leeds, via the Wellbeing, Safety and Health department are about to recruit a full time role for promoting staff health and wellbeing.
  • Results helped raise the importance of staff being more active and promoting health and wellbeing to colleagues in their own teams as demonstrated by the hundreds of Healthy Week Heroes we had.
  • Sport and Physical Activity has seen an increase in schools across the University engaging with the staff wellness programme

These are all great steps forward and this year’s survey will help to give even further insight and see if there has been a change in results from last year.

This year’s survey is now live for staff and students to complete until the 18th March and all students who fully complete the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £50 Amazon Vouchers, and staff will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £50 Refresh card vouchers for buying food and drinks on campus. Fill out the survey now!

All survey responses are anonymous and will be used to provide the University with the insight to provide programmes and offers that fit the wants and needs of the staff and students at the University of Leeds.
