UK Outdoor Fitness works in partnership with the University of Sheffield to support the delivery of its new innovative and ambitious staff wellbeing strategy Juice. The University of Sheffield is one of the world’s top 100 universities and was named University of the Year in the 2011 Times Higher Education Awards. The University employs around 6,000 staff and teaches over 24,000 students from more than 130 nations. The University of Sheffield is a large and complex organisation, brought together with a common academic purpose. It operates on an international basis with an annual turnover of £400 million.

This year, the University will launch its “Everyday Health & Wellbeing Strategy”, designed to create a happy working environment and to enable healthy behaviours from its workforce. Part of the strategy will be the introduction of a broad range of new physical health interventions, activities and events for staff. From April 2012 this will include fitness sessions and outdoor bootcamps organised and delivered by the UK Outdoor Fitness team.

The University’s Director of Human Resources, Andy Dodman said “We are delighted to be working with UK Outdoor Fitness – their expertise in this area will enable us to offer our staff a range of high quality, enjoyable and fun sessions – an important part of our desire to support individuals achieve positive, healthy and productive working lives.” More information can be found at

I have been a UK outdoor fitness member for over 10 years!  Love the variety of instructors and locations, it never gets boring.  Paul did a fantastic job of moving online when COVID hit, the sessions have really helped to keep me sane during lockdowns.  Here’s to the next 10 years!
