Forget the endless procession of joggers bouncing along Portway. There are far more exhilarating places to get your pulse racing in Bristol. The south west’s hippest city (eyes peeled for the latest street art) has plenty of good personal trainers too. Want to find your perfect match? Just type in your postcode and browse a curated list of Bristol fitness pros within a hop, step and a jump of your doorstep.
Oh and who needs stuffy gym sessions with Bristol as your back yard?
Castle Park is an emblem of the city. Or take to College Green (mind the frisbees) and nail a kettlebells workout - right beside the bewitching architecture of Bristol Cathedral, Central Library and City Hall. Want to challenge legs as well as arms? Bristol loves a hill. Like, really loves a hill. Grab your trainer and hotfoot it up Park Street. Snake up Brandon Hill and drink in the views. Or give your stems an even sterner test and shift up St Michael’s Hill. (Carry on to the cafés of Cotham for a nice big glass of juice. You’ll have earned it.) A breather from the city centre? Head for Ashton Court: 850 acres of stunning woodland and meadows. Yes please.
Your city is your playground.
