Cause the summer is never that far away…

Not concentrating on punching or kicking, but on using your opponent’s energy to unbalance him.

Hiking and climbing trips to most beautiful parts of The Netherlands and the rest of Europe.

Aikido is the study of movement, which can be utilized for self-defense and the maintenance of good posture/health. While aikido is a martial art, it’s not competitive; there is no competition between people. The practice of aikido is the practice of the pure (modern) combative techniques that are derived from the old budo (japanese martial arts). It is said that aikido is the most complete budo because of its application of different stances, positions, movements and distances. Also the use of wooden weapons such as the tanto (knife), bokken (sword) and jo (stick) contribute to this statement. Aikido is suited to people of varying physical strength, irrespective of age or gender.

Climbing is an exhilarating sport! At the Eindhoven Student Alpinism Club (E.S.A.C.) you can experience every bit of adventure the sport brings. Your physical and mental ability will be pushed to the limit. Besides climbing, at E.S.A.C. you can also enjoy hiking, bouldering and tour skiing. The club trains twice a week, once at the SSC and once at Neoliet. E.S.A.C. also organizes trips to the most beautiful parts of the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Besides all the physical activities, the trips also have a huge social character. If you’re looking for something new during your study time, then join E.S.A.C.

The abdominal muscle half hour is a close friend of sports card holders with an eternal summer in their mind! These lessons help you to get a firm, healthy torso and belly. The lessons are suitable for both beginning as advanced sportsmen/women. The great strength of this lesson is the group work. Training in a group increases the motivation for completing the sometimes strenuous abdominal exercises. During these lessons we also stimulate the participants to do abdominal exercises in their own time, and more important, in their own pace. Lara Hofstra

You improve step-by-step-by-step until your arrow suddenly just flows.

Thanks to the low impact of the water, Aquafit is a safe way of exercising.

Shake your way into shape thanks to the lowimpact fun during our weekly pool party.

Archery is a combination of power, control, concentration and (shooting) condition. A normal bow has a draw force of about 35 pounds. While shooting you have to aim, keep the bow under control and finish the shot in a controlled manner. This combination makes archery a challenging sport. Student Archery Club Da Vinci offer a free introductory course for beginning archers consisting of 10 lessons, of which the first two are for free. Bow, arrows and other materials are all supplied by Da Vinci. The introduction course is a perfect way to get to know the sport.

Aquafit is all about having fun and improving your stamina. It has all the physical elements: power, agility, stamina, speed, and flexibility as well as body composition. Thanks to the low impact nature of water activities, Aquafitness is a safe training method, especially for those with back, heart, and joint troubles. The lesson is suitable for everyone, men and women, young and old.

It’s just like Otis Redding once sang: You move your body all around - And just shake - Thats the way you do it Shake, Shake, Shake it baby Shake it like a bowl of soup - Let your body loop de loop - Put your hands on your hip - Come on and let your backbone slip - Move your body like your hip - And just shake! Aquazumba will get you into shape if you shake it the right way. Aquazumba is cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.

Capoeira is a spectacular mix of martial arts, dance, music and culture, that originated in Brazil as a cover defense tactic, practiced by slaves wishing to free themselves. Because practicing self-defense was prohibited, slaves disguised their training as African dance in order to mislead their masters. Capoeira is a very versatile sport that develops all the muscles of the body, builds strength, agility and improves coordination. There is also a musical and cultural side to explore as well. In short, cool to see, even cooler to do! E.S.C. Impulsao

Survivals are running competitions with obstacles. Adventure racing is an orientation competition with different sport disciplines. The level of the training sessions varies from beginner to specialist, so anybody can join. However at the beginning of the college year the focus is more on basic techniques. The intensity of the training will increase during the year.

If you want to get your body in shape in a feminine way then start with PaalFitness! This sport is a combination of strength, agility and, of course, a bit of guts to do a little acrobatics and fitness on a pole. It results in a nice body and it will also boost your self-confidence! Various turns and locking techniques will be practiced during the course. And of course we will go upside down in the pole. The beginners’ course is organized by the SSC. And if you can’t get enough, or when you already have some experience, you can join the Student Pole Sports Club Blue! The association provides training hours, workshops and other fun activities.

Pilates was designed by Joseph Pilates, a German physical-culturist. He developed a system of exercises during the first half of the 20th century, which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body. Joseph Pilates believed that mental and physical health are inter-related. The Pilates lesson is a 60 minute exercise program consisting of 5 minute warm-up, 50 minutes of mat-exercises and 5 minutes stretching. The program focuses on core muscles, breathing, control and precision. The exercises offered are accessible to beginners, while different levels of the same exercise challenge the advanced participant.

Spinning is a nice way to maintain or build your overall stamina.

A fast and energetic sport that rewards quick feet and quick thinking.

An exhilarating and challenging sport with a laid-back attitude.

Spinning is cycling with music on special designed spinning bikes. These are comparable to home trainers, but a spinning bike uses a flywheel. This has a major advantage because you can train your cycling technique better and you can ride at higher intensities. Spinning is a nice way to maintain or build your overall stamina. During the lessons the instructor will ride with you and simulate mountains, descents and sprints. The course is available for every level because you can tune the resistance yourself. Since last year we also have videocycling.

Interested in a lightning fast, energetic racket sport? Then Squash is the sport for you! E.S.S.R.V. Quatsh is a club with around 40 members.

Water polo

Yoga Ashtanga

Yoga Hatha

No pads, no helmets, no protection... just men and women with balls.

You can practice Poweryoga within your own physical capabilities.

Yoga restores the connection between the body and the mind.

Water polo is a team sport that is played with a ball in the water. Beside physical strength and endurance, technical skill and tactical insight of both individual players and of the team as a whole are important. Equally important is the team spirit. At Nayade both female and male players are trained at several levels: from the purely recreational level to the level of the 3rd national league. Former Greek international Alex Papanelopoulos is trainer of the men teams. But, of course, because Nayade is a student association, other pleasant and enjoyable social activities play an important role, too.

Ashtanga / Poweryoga is a regular series of positions, that you execute in a ‘flow’, starting with a series of sun salutations. Poweryoga is a dynamic and energetic form of movement, in which you develop balance, coordination, power and flexibility. Each muscle will be trained and shaped. It is effective, challenging and active. You can practice Poweryoga within your own physical capabilities. Poweryoga brings inner strength, focus and stability, which helps you to deal with stress and tension better. Lessons take place during lunch and in the afternoon.

The asana’s (yoga postures) and the breathing are important parts in a Hatha yoga class. By doing yoga you strengthen the muscles and make the body more flexible. Together with the breathing exercises it improves your concentration and ability to relax. Yoga restores the connection between the body and the mind and it improves your awareness, helping you to find more balance in life. Take a towel and some warm clothes with you.

Yoga Kundalini


Even a couple of minutes of yoga per day can make a real difference.

Shake it like Shakira during the work-out in disguise.

Kundalini Yoga is a form of yoga that is very well suited for the busy times we’re living in. Even a couple of minutes of yoga per day can make a real difference. A class consists of a sequence of dynamic yoga exercises, followed by relaxation and a meditation, sometimes combined with a mantra. Breathing plays a central role during this class. The exercises work on the glandular system and on the nervous system. That’s why the classes do not only have a physical effect, but also a mental one. It gives you inner balance and makes you aware of who you are.

The name Zumba hasSpanish-Colombian roots, where it means ‘fast moving and having fun’, and that is exactly what the sport is all about. You can dance with great passion to the sounds of Latin-American Music, with a flavor of hip-hop. You will be doing fitness exercises, but with a twist of Salsa, Mambo en Meringue. Since it looks more like a dance lesson, it is a ‘work-out in disguise’ and therefore a fun way to improve your rhythm and stamina. The lessons are open to all sports cardholders!
