What is Trinity Operation Transformation (TOT)?

As part of the Healthy Trinity initiative, CollegeHealth and Trinity Sport are putting a Trinity twist on the national television and radio programme. We recommend you get into a group with some of your friends, classmates or colleagues but you can also take part as an individual.

Register here to take part in any of the elements of the programme below.

What's On In Trinity?

From the 22nd January - 27th Febuary, TOT will support you to be more physically active, eat healthy, stop smoking and stay motivated for change. TOT is part of the Healthy Trinity initiative.

Launch 22nd January 2018

Come to our lunchtime launch in the Main Hall of the Sports Centre from 1.05-1.50. It will be a chance to meet everyone doing TOT and to do some light, fun physical activity.

For a time table of everything that's on see our At A Glance section or read on below for a more detailed description.

Physical Activity

Easily our favourite part, there are lots of opportunities to be physically active. 

  • TOT exercise class: TOTers Choice takes place class every Thursday 12.15-1pm.  TOTers choice means that each week, participants tell us what activity they want to do the following week. What would you like? Body Blast? Bootcamp? Kettlebells? The group decides.

  • Free lunchtime social quickfix: Our social walk/jog/run group meets from 1.05-1.35 every Wednesday at the steps of the Pavilion. We know lack of time stops people being active. We'll do a 5 minute warm up, 20 minutes walking/jogging/running around the fitness trail and a 5 minute cool-down. You'll meet lots of nice people and still have time to change and eat lunch. All welcome.

  • Free outside HIIT: Gareth or Anthony will take you through a HIIT class outside, weather dependent. Meet at Sports Centre reception.
  • Private classes: Sport are very generously offering up to five free private classes. Get organised into your group, find a space in your area where you can exercise and contact Deirdre Mullen-McGuinness to arrange an instructor to come to you.
  • Discounted classes: Thanks to Trinity Sport classes like Step Aerobics, Bootcamp, Kettlebells, Boxfit and HITT Cycle are reduced price: For members it is €3 for 45 minute classes and €2.50 for 30 minute classes. For non-members it's €7 for 45 minute classes and €4.50 for 30 minute classes.
  • Open Club Sessions: Trinity's Sports Clubs have open sessions during TOT every year. You’re sure of a warm welcome because each of the clubs has assigned a friendly person to meet and greet new people. Why not try trampolining, fencing, dancing, swimming, badminton… we could go on!
  • Campus 3K: To celebrate your better health, Sport host a campus 3K walk/run/jog.  No course times are taken because it’s for fun, not competition and is aimed at all levels. All are welcome.



Staying Motivated

  • When you register you will set a clear vision for what you want to achieve 
  • Email updates will remind you of why you signed up and what you can do to stay motivated.
  • There will be three weigh ins in the Sports Centre



Eating Healthy

  • College Catering Outlets will offer healthy options during TOT
  • Use the recipes on for inspiration. 
  • From Thursday 24th, for two months, whenever the Buttery serves lasagne, it will be vegetarian. This change was voted for by Trinity students before Christmas. Be sure to support this change by calling to the Buttery and ordering veggie lasagne.



Stopping Smoking

Free stop smoking course begins Thursday 24th January. More details here. It's a great time to stop before Trinity becomes a tobacco free campus on the 6th of March 2019. We've already seen an 83% reduction in smoking in tobacco free zones!
