Most active and healthy sessions have been recommenced.

Residents are encouraged to check our What's On calendar for updates before attending a session.

Get active at our free fitness classes, or take advantage of our low-cost activities to help improve your health. Try yoga, tai chi, group bike rides, Zumba, boxing, aqua aerobics and GOLD events for our seniors.

With such a large variety of group fitness classes, there are so many ways to build strength, increase your cardio fitness and help relax and ease your mind. 

Our active and healthy events are just one of the many ways we're creating more things to see and do in Brisbane.
