Fitness in the Park

Fitness in the Park

| On 16, May 2014

We’re lucky to live in a city that abounds in beautiful parks and stunning weather all year round. Instead of paying high fees for gym memberships and missing out on Brisbane’s glory, why not take advantage of the many fitness and wellbeing classes held in parks all over Brisbane — for no cost!

With gym membership fees through the roof, many people find it hard to justify the cost, particularly when they have a busy schedule. Luckily, many fitness studios offer a variety of free classes throughout the week, including dance, yoga and boxing.

Many classes don’t require booking so all you need to do is put on your exercise gear, bring a mat/towel, water and sun protection, and head to the park.

Here are some free fitness and wellbeing classes being held this Friday and Saturday:
