KTU opened new sports facilities Activated

Research and specialists agree: if you are physically active, you will achieve more in your studies. Sports activities lower the concentration of stress hormones in your blood, boost your confidence, strengthen your will, and teach discipline. Also, sports improve your intellectual abilities.

“Sports improve not only your physical form, but also helps to keep your inner world in order. Going to gym can definitely be called a certain kind of therapy”, says Loreta Šapokienė, coach and gym assistant at KTU Sports Centre. According to her, people are starting to understand the crucial importance of physical activities and sport. 

“All you need is to devote 30-40 minutes to your favourite physical activity 3-4 times a week”, Mrs Šapokienė is convinced.

On average, around 800-1.000 students attend sports classes during the school year; more than 100 of them are international students. The most popular classes among students are fitness, group aerobics, basketball, volleyball and indoor rock climbing. Football and cricket classes are very popular among international students.

The decision to open a new sports hall was made aiming to meet the growing demand for fitness classes. In the new Activated sports facilities KTU students and staff will be able to choose from a variety of classes and activities: the new sports club has the free weights gym, boxing gym, cardio and powerlifting gym; callanetics, tabata workout, functional gym, pilates, kinesitherapy are among the variety of choices for sports classes.
