- Be inspired with what's available in the Eric Liddell, fixed wights Gym at the Pleasance Sports Complex and Gym.
Reopened in August 2023, this newly refreshed space offers members a variety of state-of-the-art Technogym fixed-weight resistance and cardio machines. It's a great place to train whether you’re starting your strength-based journey or simply wish to resistance train in a more fixed-weight environment.
Open to everybody
We understand that coming to the gym for the first time can be a daunting and overwhelming experience and it can be hard to know where to begin. To address this, we have designed a space inspired by our student interns that bring together key pieces of equipment in one area, enabling you to achieve an effective full-body workout with just a few exercises.
Celebrating the legacy of Eric Liddell
We are extraordinarily proud of the University’s association with Eric Liddell, who was our inaugural Sport Hall of Fame inductee in 2008.
The refurbishment of the new Eric Liddell Gym will coincide with the beginning of a new awareness drive launched by The Eric Liddell Community, the Eric Liddell 100 campaign, a programme of events and activities to recognise and celebrate the life, sporting and community service achievements of one of Scotland’s iconic figures.
As well as 30 brand new treadmills, 15 cross-trainers and 9 exercise bikes, for the first time we have introduced 8 stair climbers and a hand crank into our mix of cardio kit.
