Lovely sunny weather came to UK! Let's celebrate~!
Sunny summer in Birmingham is really great!! It changes the city really alive which is 180 ° different from cloudy or rainy weather. Not too hot, not humid at all conditions make fresh and comfortable environment. So many student are enjoying sun-bedding at the lake. I really like that all of people celebrate and appreciate this nice weather.
On the other hand, in my country, people try to be in air conditional equipped building to avoid too hot and humid summer. I even doesn't like summer in Korea that much even though I was born in middle of summer. (Some of Korean believe that a person born in summer or winter, the person might be good at standing extremely hot or cold weather.) But here, I go to lake everyday to absorb sunshine!!

I can't emphasize the importance of workout too strongly. To maintain healthy body and mind, I started workout from when term 1 started. At first, I went to off-campus gym but I changed to The Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre (we call it Woodcock), located in Aston campus because it has 50m swimming pool.
To find more, checkout 'Sports at Aston' website
There's three types of membership
Gold = Gym, Swim, Sauna + Steam & Aerobics classes
Sliver = Gym, Swim, Sauna & Steam
Bronze = Gym only
Each membership has different fee depend on the contents and duration.
Students could get lowest price, of course.
You can check the price of the memberships here.
I recommend Woodcock's gym since it had been refurbished recently and all the facilities are new!
I love pool and sauna especially, to survive in chilly weather in the UK.
The water of pool is quite warm. When you get in to pool area, you would feel hot due to humidity and temperature. Having a sauna and stream room makes me relaxed after hard-work. Since I miss floor heating system at home and sauna in Korea, I really enjoy those facilities here.
Also, it is possible to play indoor and outdoor sports in campus.

Good luck everybody~ :-)
