Additionally, there are a variety of inclusive and diverse classes, most of which are run by volunteers and are free to attend.

Besides our daily activities, we offer yearly events such as 1/2 Marathon, 24 Hour Fun Run (Make-A-Wish) and International Basketball Tournament. Finally, don’t forget to inquire about fitness challenges, intramural sports program and SACEUR Sports Trophy competition

Due to limited space, some indoor classes need to be booked at the link provided below. Not all indoor classes will appear. Just the ones that require booking. If you’re class doesn’t appear, it means no booking is required. Just show up and get ready to workout!
Classes requiring payment will have further instructions in the class confirmation email.

Fitness Annex

The Fitness Annex (Building 301) is situated across the Sports & Fitness Centre parking lot. The facility has a selection of free weights and fixed weights machines, a large amount of cardio vascular equipment and a good stretching area. Patrons must bring a workout towel to use the facilities. Limited to 25 personnel maximum on a first come, first served basis.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool on SHAPE is open every day of the week for lap swim for the entire community. The pool schedule is available on the link here below. The pool length is 25 meters and there is no fee to use the pool. Its primary purpose is for military usage and training. Recreational activities are secondary and provide an opportunity for community usage. For this reason the pool water is kept at regulated 27 °C. This is a temperature advised to avoid bacterial proliferation and is the recommended temperature for training and lap swimming.

See swimming pool schedule below.


Lockers are accessible throughout the male and female changing rooms. Daily use lockers are offered. A lock may be signed out from the Main Gym Front Desk free of charge for daily use lockers; however, personal locks may not be used. Permanent lockers are available for long-term rental, please see Main Gym Front Desk for an application.

Towel Policy

It is compulsory for patrons entering all fitness facilities to use a towel during workout. Towel rentals are available for 1 Euro per visit.


Saunas are available in male and female changing rooms near the basketball court. Patrons must be at least 18-years-old. Due to space constraints and COVID procedures, only one member at a time is authorized.
