Fit – salut Palma 2018
This weekend is fitness weekend in Palma when thousands of people can sample a myriad of physical activities for free. It's the annual health and fitness fair which is taking place in the big Parque del Mar entertainment and recreation area in front of the cathedral.
The entire area from east to west and north to south, including the lake, will be given over to fitness activities which anyone can sample and join in. It's being promoted by the council who have gathered together around 100 bodies and organisations involved in both health and physical fitness to encourage us all to do a bit more exercise.
Naturally, the council believe that a fitter population is a happier and healthier one, with less strain of the health resources of the island. With that in mind, the whole area has been divided up into five zones in which we can practise pretty well every sport and physical activity known to man (well not literally of course) and have loads of fun at the same time.
Aimed at all ages, genders and abilities, we can take part in individual activities, team sports, water sports, and even consult experts on health and fitness matters.
The dates for your diary are 22nd and 23rd September from 10.30 to 14.30 and then 16.30 to 20.30 when you can join in anything you fancy. I've posted a couple of screen grabs of the timetable to give you an idea of what's on.
