Westport, CT

Westport, CT is a charming town on the Saugatuck river that attracts corporate executives, artists and fitness enthusiasts alike! While there are many boutique gyms and small group training studios in Westport to check out, don’t forget to take advantage of the public parks and quintessential New England beaches. Here are a few of my favorite outdoor activities in Westport:

•Ride a bike around Sherwood Island

•Walk from Compo Beach to Old Mill Beach and back again (about a 40 min walk)

•Bring the pup to Winslow Park for some social time – there is an off-leash area where you both can run like the wind

•Rent a kayak and paddle around the Saugatuck River – a challenging upper body workout!

•Play a round of golf at Longshore, a public 18 hole course

If you’re looking to get in better shape so you can do all these activities and more, reach out today to find out how in-home personal training with Bradley Fitness can help you.
