Revitalise your fitness journey with RNN Group

Whether your plans this year include getting fit or staying fit, move more in 2024 with the help of RNN Group.

We have options available for students, staff, and the general public to reach their fitness goals.

Join the gym at DVC Sports

We’re more than just an education provider. DVC Sports is one of our commercial outlets that is open to the public alongside its use within the sports department at Dearne Valley College.

Based in Manvers on the same site as the Dearne Valley College campus, DVC Sports includes a state-of-the-art gym and a multi-use sports centre that are both open seven days a week. Members love that it’s clean, bright, and not intimidating like other big commercial gyms.

Inside the gym at DVC Sport

Joining is really easy. There are no 12-month contracts and membership prices start from £17.99 a month, or just £12 for RNN students.

When you join, you get access to the fully air-conditioned Fitness63 gym which has 70 stations of cardio, strength training, and stretching equipment.

If you sign up to the combined gym and classes membership, you’ll also be able to book onto any of the many fitness classes that take part throughout the week. There are classes for circuit training, HiiT workouts, yoga and Pilates, and Xpress spin sessions. Or why not try the class roulette session where the instructor spins the wheel to choose a different exercise class each week. See our current class timetable.

If team sports are more your game, then we’ve got the facilities to get the ball rolling. The sports centre at DVC Sports has indoor and outdoor pitches for football, netball, basketball, badminton and tennis. Our new outdoor football pitch is the GOAT, with FIFA 2* quality 3G turf.

Free fitness suite access for RNN students and staff

Did you know that we have a fitness suite at both our Rotherham College and North Notts College campuses?

Students and staff have free access to use the facilities during lunchtime hours. Each College fitness suite is different, but there is a mix of equipment to use including treadmills, bikes, rowing machines, squat racks, cable pulls and free weights.

The Rotherham College fitness suite is based in the Clifton Building, and the North Notts College fitness suite is at the Worksop site located near the Blyth Road entrance.

Exercise is important even if you aren’t a sport student. Regular movement is good for your physical and mental health. Fitting a workout in during your lunch break will give you a brain boost and keep you motivated and engaged for your afternoon lessons.
