Manchester is associated with sport worldwide thanks to its two famous football teams. And while we love spectating, we also love taking part. ‘Fit’ has two meanings in this city: this section is all about the active, healthy one. (Go to Beauty for the other).
Manchester hosted the XVII Commonwealth Games in 2002 – a huge event that led to a massive investment in fitness facilities and grassroots sports. The growth of city centre living has had a big impact too; the number of Manchester city centre gyms, personal trainers and fitness studios has multiplied.
You’ve got a lot of options but we live, work, and workout in Manchester so we know which places have a solid reputation (and we don’t mind sharing our favourites with you).
