BeActive

Social Activity at King's

BeActive is the social and recreational activity programme available to all students and staff at King’s College London.

Across our staff and student timetables, we offer over 80 activities every week to ensure that there is something out there for you.

No commitment is needed, so it’s up to you if you want to try a different activity each week or become a regular to your favourite session. All activities are non-competitive and inclusive, so everyone can participate regardless of experience or ability.

Move Your Mind Classes  

We wanted to let you know that a number of Kings Sport staff are now currently on 'furlough' under the UK Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. In line with the reduction in our team who are able to continue working, we have made some amendments to the online timetable.   

We have been overwhelmed with the support of our online programmes and our team over what has been a difficult time, with over 19,000 attendees during this initial period. However our coaching team will be back in the near future when our facilities are able to re-open.


Click here to see the revised timetable
.

Our online classes are free to everyone, no membership, no fee, just some space (roughly 2mx2m) some water, and a good attitude to keep your mind and body healthy during this period. 

Not only will we be running Group Exercise classes during this time, but you’ll also see a number of sessions dedicated to goal setting, motivation and wellness.  

Zoom has recently implemented added security measures by requesting a password to attend our online sessions. If this happens enter MYM20 in capitals.  

How do I access it? 

  1. Make a free Zoom account through the app or the website https://zoom.us/  

  1. Join the session by inputting the ID code from the timetable into zoom 

    *NOTE: please join 5 minutes before the start of the class, if you join after the class has begun you will not be admitted to that session*  

  1. You will be in the 'waiting room' until the instructor is ready to begin the class 

  1. Turn on your device video so the instructor can see you 

  1. Turn on ‘join with audio’ so you can hear the instructor 

    *NOTE: you will automatically be muted when you join a class – please only unmute yourself at the end of the class or if absolutely necessary*

FAQs

Absolutely no problem. BeActive sessions are geared towards trying sports non-competitively, regardless of your level of experience or fitness. However with swimming there is no coach present, and you must be able to swim competently as this is just a drop in swim session.

To see for yourself, just come along to the next session and get involved.
