With the 2018 Forum in Nijmegen fast approaching, Core H&F would like to share their exciting plans to help you enjoy your time with your ENAS colleagues.

For this year’s forum, Core H&F have created a short survey of six questions to see how they might be able to assist you with your upcoming facility developments in 2019 and beyond. For the chance to win 3 x MYZONE Watches, 3 x MYZONE Belts and a Schwinn/Stairmaster HIIT Education day for your staff, please fill out the survey by following the link on the Evenium app or by speaking with Greg at the forum.

The MYZONE ‘2018 ENAS Forum Challenge’ is now live until the 15th November, when we will announce the person who has earned the most MEP’s since 15th October. Make sure to bring your MYZONE belts with you to the forum to keep score of those MEP’s earned during the workouts with Wayne.

In Nijmegen, HIIT workouts with Wayne will feature even more equipment than last year. Ten pieces of Stairmaster HIIT equipment, combined with accessories such as kettlebells and agility ladders, will help make your workouts even more fun and effective. Class sizes have been limited to 20 participants per session this year, with class booking available on the Evenium app. Be sure to book yourself on to one of the three sessions (Wednesday 14th, 7-8am and Thursday 15th, 7-8am + 4:15-5:15pm) to secure your spot. If for some reason you are unable to attend a booked session, please make sure you remove your booking so that others can take the space. This year, Wayne will also be hosting a HIIT Bike calorie burn challenge during the networking breaks. Come and jump on a bike to see how quickly you can burn 25 calories!

If you have questions on any of the above, please speak to Greg at the forum or contact him on +44 7824858681 or

Looking forward to seeing you all in Nijmegen in a couple of weeks!

If you missed it, the ENAS Award shortlist was announced last week.

We’re now happy to provide some background on each of the projects that have made the shortlist and will be presented at our Forum & Assembly in Nijmegen.

First up is University College Dublin and their project ‘Students helping Students’.

‘Students Helping Students’ at UCD Dublin integrates real-world learning and service provision for students by students in a university sport setting.

Partnership between the Physiotherapy unit and Sport Services gives students a structured Physiotherapy work placement in the Sport Centre, supervised by Physiotherapy staff.

They develop and deliver services in response to student needs, while gaining experiential learning. To date, initiatives include: supporting the Active Campus Europe programme; delivering classes; provision of sports massage, recovery and advice for athletes; first aid for UCD sport teams; engagement in health, exercise and wellness promotion for the university community.

You can find out ever more about UCD’s initiative at the Forum & Assembly when they present the project to our delegates, prior to the final vote.

Keep an eye out tomorrow and Thursday for our other two finalists.

She oversees the planning of the sport initiatives within the framework of the ‘Sport for all’ project which was started in 2017.

Elisabetta said: “The University of Trento is thrilled to host the 2019 edition of the ENAS Forum & Assembly. The team of the UniTrento Sport project together with other strategic divisions of the University will do its best to welcome all international participants to the beautiful Trentino and Dolomites region.”

“We hope to be able to guarantee a great networking environment in a friendly atmosphere and to collect relevant good practices to give new life to our Sport4Skills project.”

More information on the 2019 Forum will be released to ENAS members in the new year.

Forum Speakers Announced

ENAS and our hosts in Nijmegen are delighted to announce the first confirmed speakers for the 21st ENAS Forum and Assembly in November.

Brothers Patrick and Milan Van Der Meulen will be the keynote speakers for the first session of the Forum.

They became inspired by An Inconvenient Truth when they were very young. The Dutch brothers are part of an international and dynamic group of world changers who shape the debate about climate problems. Milan was appointed Climate Reality Leader in 2015 after training from the former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore.

They co-founded, which focuses on integrating many forms of renewable energy into creative hybrid systems. The session will focus on three important questions: Should we change? Can we change? Are we going to change?

Register now, get inspired and join us to become lean, mean and green in 2018!
