Imagine a week-long chance to get healthy. Discover yoga, zumba, taekwondo, rowing, meditation, reiki and a lot more. Attend free health check-ups right on campus and head off for a hike through the Botanical Garden immediately after.
If you’re a TU Delft employee, you can do all this and more during the Vitality Week. From April 8 to 12, the university will host a range of sessions and workshops focussed on encouraging employees towards healthy living. “The Vitality Week is part of the Vitality Program of the TU Delft. The main reason we chose to organise such as event is that TU Delft aims to have as many healthy employees as possible, especially in terms of sustainable employability. Moreover, the Dutch government wants employees to continue working until they are 67. Therefore, the fitness of our employees is very important,” explains Saskia Timmer, Vitaliteitsprogramma TU Delft.
In 2012, over 400 people registered for Vitality Week. That year health checks were offered in a tent in front of the Aula and they turned out to be so popular that in 2013 two entire days of health check-ups have been organised. Two nurses will be available to check your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and more for those who register for check-ups.
