ExHALE ExHALE (Exercise for Health, Achievement, Lifestyle & Energy) is a support service open to the whole University community to encourage activity, healthy habits and improved wellbeing
Strathclyde Tree Trail Working in partnership with Every Tree Tells a Story, Strathclyde Sport's ExHALE and Sustainable Strathclyde, the trail identifies trees in and around the University campus which can be explored on foot. Designing this route, we've identified a number of tree locations, describing the tree and its surroundings, seeking to encourage walkers to explore according to their own choices and needs.
Hampden Sports Clinic Hampden Sports Clinic is based in Strathclyde Sport and will work with you to develop a bespoke programme that supports your goals, whether it is recovering from injury, regaining your mobility, or improving your fitness. This can be as simple as walking again after a significant injury to getting back to your favourite pastime to improving your fitness to smash P.B in your next marathon. Costs apply.
