In June, five Link to Leeds student ambassadors participated in a fun-filled week of health and fitness activities, here at The Edge. Working in partnership with Link to Leeds, this project was an exciting opportunity not only for the ambassadors but also for the Sport and Physical Activity team. We wanted to show the international student community all that is on offer to them during the holidays; although the majority of students have left campus, many international students stay here in Leeds for the Summer.

Haleemah, Victor, Ahmad, Daniela and Melina experienced a variety of fitness activities including; personal training sessions, badminton, squashbasketball, football, Zumbaballet fit, P90x, spinbox fit, kung fu, climbing, body pumpbeginners yoga, and the use of the Technogym machines within our state-of-the-art fitness suite. It was a fun-filled, jam-packed week that gave the ambassadors the opportunity to experience everything that The Edge has to offer.

By the end of the week I was amazed by everything that The Edge has to offer. It’s really easy to access the classes, the facilities and get materials to play sports Melina Rodriguez.

Link to Leeds is fantastic University scheme that encourages international students to share their experiences, adventures and activities with prospect international students. Take a look at the Link to Leeds social media accounts; Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, which are filled with daily stories, videos and pictures that captured every moment of the ambassador’s energetic week. Read more about their experiences through their blogs on the Link to Leeds website.
