Whether you already live in Sheffield or you are just visiting, there are lots of ways to stay fit, healthy and active in Sheffield. In no particular order, these are my top ten websites to check out to help you stay fit and strong in Sheffield!
1 Nourish – This place is the go to place for lush healthy food in the city centre. All of their meals are made fresh daily and they can even deliver it to you!
2 The Outdoor City – Sheffield is The Outdoor City, with lots of opportunities for you to spend time in the great outdoors and learn new skills such as climbing or mountain biking. Search for the #theoutdoorcity on social media.
3 Park Run – Sheffield parks are wicked. Not only because they are cool places to hang out but also because we have 4 different Park Runs to choose from. These free timed 5km runs start in the parks at 9am every Saturday.
4 Hallam Barbell – If you want to get strong but not sure where to start, Dave and his team at Hallam Barbell run regular courses and workshops, including ladies only. Like them on Facebook to keep up to date with upcoming sessions.
5 South Yorkshire Sport – If you want to get involved with sport in South Yorkshire, then the SYsport website has all the info. There are volunteering opportunities listed on the website as well as an activity finder and a jobs section.
6 Pedal Ready – Sheffield is a busy and hilly city , especially if you are on your bike. If you need a bit more confidence have a free 1:1 session with a pedal ready instructor. You tell them where you want to go to and from and they will plan the safest route and then ride with you to help boost your confidence.
7 Beanies Health Food Store – Selling wholefood and organic produce in walkey as well as gluten free foods.
8 Breeze ladies only bike rides – Ladies only group bike rides. If you want to find new routes in and around Sheffield get booked onto a Breeze ride. I’ve heard they have regular cake stops on the way too!
9 Decathlon – I love this place! They sell everything you need to be active plus they have decent coffee in the foyer!
10 The Climbing Works – A really friendly, chilled out climbing and bouldering wall. They run courses too if you are looking to learn or just to practise your technique before heading into the Peaks!
