The Olympics has a way of bringing out the health conscious side of anyone. Watching others perform at the peak of physical fitness inspires even the most inactive of us to take better care of ourselves and get fit.
If you’ve been bitten by the fitness bug, while watching the 2016 Rio Olympics, and you aren’t sure where to start we’ve got you covered. Ghana is home to a wide variety of fitness centres, gyms and health clubs that promote an active lifestyle. We’ve rounded up a list of some of the well-known fitness venues and classes around Accra in this two-part post.
