Fitness along the Prom

The fitness trail along Swansea Prom is an exercise circuit perfect for those who enjoy the fresh air, exercising outside or who may find the gym little too intimidating.

The equipment can be used for various exercises which can improve balance, strength and coordination and is free for all to use.

While most of us recognise the importance of exercise, all too few of us have the time to dedicate to it, which is why the outdoor fitness equipment is great for making a walk with the dog, or a run a little different while working out different areas of the body in the great outdoors.  It's also great to stop while out for a stroll or taking the dog for a walk.

The fitness trail is 4km / 2.5 miles long and runs from the civic centre down to Blackpill. You can start the trail in either direction and look out for these discs on the floor that help you understand how far you have walked, cycled or run.

Remember you don't have to complete it all in one go, start slow and build up your progress over a number of weeks.
