Brisbane City Council offers a variety of fitness activities and exercise opportunities for all ages and abilities making it super easy to get yourself ready for Bridge to Brisbane!
Council is committed to creating more to see and do and with so much on offer, from cycling to aqua aerobics, there’s so many ways to build up your fitness ahead of the big day and get the most out of your race! Active Parks
Council hosts a range of free group fitness events and well-being activities for all ages through its Active Parks program. Try Tai Chi, Pilates or Yoga, or have a go at Cross Training or Boxfit if you’re after something more intensive. Events change regularly across all parks and bookings are essential, so head to What’s On Brisbane so you don’t miss out on these popular events!
Council has 22 pools across Brisbane, each offering great opportunities to get fit and healthy. Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise there is, as it’s a full body work out that has little-tono impact on your joints and bones making it welcome break for your body from pounding the pavements! If doing laps isn’t your style, there’s also plenty of group fitness classes, like aqua aerobics, on offer to help boost yourself as well.
Head to Council’s website to find your nearest pool, opening hours and entry fees.
There are more than 150 Council parks that have exercise equipment installed in them. The equipment is different at each park, with some including static equipment for chin-ups, sit-ups and step-ups, while others feature more interactive equipment, like rowing and stepping machines. Whatever you find at your local park, all Council’s outdoor gyms provide the opportunity to get fit for free!
Brisbane has a large network of connected bikeways that make cycling not only a great way to get fit, but a great way to explore our city. Cycling is a great way to increase your cardio fitness – something definitely needed for Bridge to Brisbane – so visit the ‘Things to see and do’ section on Council’s website to plan your journey or to discover the more scenic bike rides.

There are more than 200 parks with basketball and/or netball half courts, hoops and keyways for public use, as well as tennis courts available to hire out.
