Fit4UU is the vitality programme of Utrecht University. During this programme, you will work on your own vitality. The programme consists of meetings and coaching sessions as well as sports and activities. We will zoom in on themes such as nutrition, mental vitality, dealing with (daily) stress, and the practical application to your day-to-day life: from knowing to acting. 
Olympos allows you to conduct the active parts of the programme through flexible and almost unlimited access to their wide range of sports activities. The choice is enormous, so choose what suits you and your goals, and what you enjoy.


As a Fit4UU participant you can:

  • Join all of the sports programmes (group lessons) available exclusively for Fit4UU participants.
  • Use your OlymPas to join the even wider options for OlymPas holders (apart from courses and more than 80 group lessons, OlymPas holders also have access to both fitness locations, can enjoy the recreational tennis and squash courts, or (learn to) climb, and much more! 
  • Participate in the free staff-only lunch activities catered for by Olympos’ so-called Keep-Fit-Cargo-Bike programme of the 'Active Utrecht Science Park' programme (even when you work in the inner city).

* What is a course and what is a group lesson?
A course is a series of lessons: once a week with a set group, at a set day and time, that you have to sign up for in advance (the registration starts two weeks before the start if the course). Most courses comprise ten weeks/lessons, some only four or five. The lessons build on the previous ones.
Group lessons can be attended flexibly and without restrictions as single lessons. If you want to be sure of a place in the lesson, you can book online from two days prior to the actual lesson.  


Keep-Fit-Cargo-Bike sports activities during your lunch break

Three times a week, from 12.30-1.15, one of our instructors will get on the Keep-Fit-Cargo-Bike to encourage staff members at the Utrecht Science Park and the inner city to be active during their lunch break. Participation is free of charge and unrestricted for all members of staff, even if you are not a Fit4UU participant or OlymPas holder. You don’t have to sign up either and you are welcome to bring a colleague along! Read more about the Keep-Fit-Cargo-Bike
