Get fit – for FREE!

Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas has taken its toll?

Well, it is a new year and maybe time to shape up. So, why not crack on with those new year resolutions and burn some unwanted calories against the stunning backdrop of 568 acres of National Botanic Garden?

 

They have created a series of trails around the Garden – some on flat paths to suit strollers, pushchairs and wheelchairs; and some more rugged, off-road routes around the estate.

 

And, if you can get to the Garden Monday-to-Friday in January, admission is completely FREE.

 

What better way to try out your new fitness gadget, dig out and dust off that FitBit you were given last Christmas and clock up a serious number of steps?

 

The various trails are clearly way-marked and there’s a free map to accompany you on your journey – pick one up on your way into the Garden.

 

And each route has a ‘cupcake’ rating that indicates the degree of difficulty.

 

So, whether you are planning a buggy boot camp, have a walking group in search of a new venue or you belong to a fitness group in need of a change of scene, this will fit like your favourite trainers.

 

If you can only make it to the Garden at the weekend, it’s not the end of the world because entry is only £4 on Saturdays and Sundays in January.
