Brisbane City Council offers a variety of fitness and well-being activities for individuals of all ages, fitness levels and abilities. 

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 or even aqua aerobics.

With such a large variety of group fitness classes, there's 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.
