Exercise counselling

The exercise counselling service will be closed during the summer from 13.5.-18.8.2024. The appointment calendar will open at the beginning of August.

Would you like to improve your well-being through exercise? Do you want more physical activity in your everyday life, but you don't know where and how to start?

UniMove's exercise counselling is aimed at students of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences, who are motivated to increase physical activity in their everyday lives in order to feel better and stay healthy. Exercise counseling is free of charge and does not require a UniMove membership. To make an appointment for exercise counselling, please use the appointment calendar below. Mika Kankainen works as UniMove's exercise counsellor.​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​You can apply for exercise counselling if:

  • you want support in getting started with exercise
  • you need individual guidance to find a suitable form of exercise
  • you need ways to make exercise a regular part of everyday life

Exercise counselling can take the form of a single visit or a process of several visits:
