October is almost upon us which means we are excited to bring you another month of Exercise is Medicine. Free activities, talks, seminars, workshops, prizes, giveaways and more!
That brings to an end another Exercise is Medicine Month. On behalf of the Centre of Sports and Exercise, we would like to express our gratitude to all the participants who supported the activities of the EIM Month in May 2018. We hope that the activities and seminars provided are able to motivate you in engaging in regular physical activity, as well as increasing your awareness of its health-related benefits.
The HKU Walking Challenge was a platform to bring together the HKU community with the common objective of walking together around the world. Since over 18 countries participated and helped us amass together a total of 463,447,412 steps, we asked people to share their stories, some of which are highlighted below!
Congratulations! With the combined effort of over 1500 people from 18 countries enthusiastically participating in the HKU "Around the World" Walking Challenge, in one month we were able to amass together a total of 463,447,412 steps, which is virtually equivalent to 7 times around the world!

A great workout session at the Main Library. Working out with exercise bands can enhance muscle strength, flexibility, stamina and overall fitness
This workshop discussed the major causes of common sports injuries and introduced specific exercises to prevent them. Through a circuit of various exercises, targeting agility, plyometrics, balance, etc., participants were challenged to train areas that they've seldom trained before.
Great work for those that joined our Kettlebell Techniques and Training session. Even though the time went by fast, we managed to go through some techniques and did a great circuit training.
Thanks to those that joined our Walking Trails on Campus. The weather was great the walk was brisk.....
Thank you to those that attended our Stability Ball Core Training who used the session to improve their balance and stability by strengthening their core muscles.
To kick off our EIM on Campus Month, Health and Fitness Assessments were conducted for free on campus.
