Foundation study students get fit over teams

A group of Foundation Studies students have been keeping fit thanks to a series of online fitness sessions.

The students, based at Truro College, have been participating in virtual fitness sessions twice a week that are helping them to stay on top of their physical and mental health while they are learning remotely.

Sam Mitchell, who is a lecturer in fitness and health for the department, started the sessions at the beginning of the term when she learnt that the students would move back to remote learning, as a result of the third national lockdown. 

As the students really enjoyed the physical fitness sessions they did on campus last term, she felt it would be really beneficial to continue this activity remotely, where the students have the opportunity to get fit, see some friendly faces and have lots of fun during the sessions.

She shared: “I felt it was important at this difficult time to keep the students engaged and active. This has been achieved through my twice weekly fitness sessions which have been a great success.
