Okay, we know it’s ‘winter’ in Brisbane, but no excuses to get out of that warm, cosy bed of yours and do some good old fashioned exercise. There are so many New Farm fitness programs to get around!

We’ve put together a little list (by no means exhaustive – pardon the pun), to help you on your way.

1. Snap Fitness New Farm 

Spear-headed by the super-fit Angus Gould, you can do everything here from personal sessions with one of the highly-qualified team to a yoga class on a Saturday morning with Cassandra. It’s in the old hardware store, so easily accessible and there’s parking too!

2. Tai Chi at the Holy Spirit

At the Holy Spirit on a Tuesday evening at 6:30, you’ll find a dedicated group of Tai Chi exponents, practising the ancient art. It’s been known to cause increased energy levels, health and happiness – sounds good to us!

3. New Farm Park Run

Lace-up every Saturday down in New Farm Park, for the weekly ParkRun meetup. It’s a timed event so you can track your progress. Be careful not to stop at the Powerhouse Markets during your run for one of those delectable croissants and coffees though.

4. Soba

Above the H & H office in New Farm, Soba offers a tonne of classes from Yin/Stretch to Barre to Vinyasa (and throw in some Pilates for good measure). The space is warm and friendly, and you can check out what we have for sale/rent in our window while you’re there (shameless plug), then go for coffee afterwards at Dicki’s!

5. Tennis anyone?

Yes, here in amenity-rich New Farm, we have our very own tennis courts for hire. With an old-fashioned covered table and chairs in between the courts, you can host a small crowd, serve afternoon tea and drink Pimms. How civilised!

We hope to see you out and about enjoying the plethora of New Farm fitness options on offer.
