Exercise

In Rentukka there is a gym that is open for tenants of Soihtu and members of Academic Sports from dawn to late evening. You can access the gym with your Village key or with a key card of Academic Sports.

In Kortepohja, you can also find outdoor exercise racks that tenants as well as others can use freely. There are, among other things, a pull-up bar and parallel bars. From the info desk in Rentukka, you can borrow several outdoor games like badminton or Finnish baseball.

Right next to Kortepohja Student Village and Soihtu Vehkakuja, there is Laajavuori where you can find jogging trails, a frisbee gold track, ski tracks during winter and adventure park during summer. In Kortepohja, many clubs that centre round well-being and exercise get together weekly.

Tenants of Soihtu Korttelikylä will be able to use their own outdoor exercise park, which will be build up in the yard of Korttelikylä when the buildings are done. Nearby there is also aquatic centre AaltoAlvari, sports centre Hippos and Campus for sports.

Please take into account that dead-lift exercising is forbidden in the gym due to structures of the building. There is a separate weight-lifting room in building A, right next to the gym.
