There are many opportunities in Brighton and Hove to keep yourself healthy and happy year round healthy year-round.
Alternatively, if you need to tone up either for summer or following childbirth, build your core strength during a Pilates session or book a personal trainer at Body Happy - Fitness for Life. Hot Yoga, too, is an effective way to lose the pounds, along with those aches and pains. Also known as Bikram Yoga, you can try a class during an open day at Hot Yoga South in Portslade – call them for details.
Active types can go for the burn and boost their seratonin levels during a dance class in the spacious, fully-sprung-floored space at Marina Studios , or check out the gym and challenge themselves to a spin class at Fitness First - just the job for commuters as it is bang next doo to Brighton station.
If you love the fresh air and can’t take your eyes of our beautiful, briny summertime sea, get along to Yellowave Beach Sports where you can wriggle your toes and have a bash at volleyball on their outdoor courts, or ease yourself into a gentle yoga session in the glass-walled studio, with splendid views out across the blue yonder.
Any runner, too, will tell you that it is about so much more than putting one foot (quickly) in front of the other. Our inspiring coastline, countryside and cities are the perfect setting for freeing your running spirit year-round - a list of Sussex events and challenges, long and short, can be found at Run Brighton.
Or, if you are merely wanting to inject a bit of gentle activity into your life, get outdoors, and meet new people, give Brighton and Hove Council's Healthwalks a go. The scheme runs 18 regular walks across the city and lengths range from under a mile to three miles.
Here's wishing health and happiness to all!
