Pick of the month: Sport in Bury St Edmunds
Posted on Sunday, 27th December, 2015
Getting active and healthy is one of the nation’s most popular New Year’s resolutions and with the help of Bury St Edmunds businesses, we’re going to help you achieve this in 2016.
Rugby is fantastic for fitness; it will build muscle and can drastically improve your endurance, agility and physicality. Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club is a local Rugby Union club that has been playing since 1925. They have a wide range of teams for both men and women of all ages and are always on the look out for new players. Find out more about their team and how you can join here.
If the gym is more your scene, Gymophobics is a ‘ladies only’ gym in the heart of town that specialises in weight loss and providing a comfortable and friendly environment for you to get active.
One way to get motivated in the New Year is to purchase some new sportswear and Intersport, one of the region’s leading sports shops, provides a great range of clothing and footwear for all kinds of fitness activities. The store works in conjunction with local schools, sports clubs, health professionals and sports coaches so if you’re looking for advice or support, the highly trained staff at Intersport are there to help.
Also, as part of Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign, Intersport organises weekly walks for all women, every Thursday from 10am for the chance to get active, mingle with friends and of course enjoy some shopping!
You may not think it, but The Apex is also good for your health! The venue offers a range of exercise classes including Pilates, Belly Dancing, Yoga and children's dance classes - perfect range of activities for the whole family! To find out more, click here.
