Each year Sport & Physical Activity conduct a survey to learn more about the activity and wellbeing levels of staff and students at the University of Leeds. These results help us to work with faculties and individuals to create opportunities for people to be more regularly active.
This year, we wanted to find out how lockdown has affected all of you and if it has had any impact not only on your activity levels but your mental wellbeing.
2020 headline results
This year things were quite different and many people’s lives changed significantly due to COVID-19. With gyms and leisure centres closed for a period of time and more of an emphasis on exercising at home or outdoors, we were interested to know how social distancing measures and a period of being told to ‘stay home’, impacted upon habits and attitudes towards physical activity; as well as the overall wellbeing of our University community.
