After its success last year, the event returns to Castle Field in Southsea today with a huge array of exercises, sports and giveaways taking place.

Everything from yoga to volleyball to boxing is on the timetable.

And there’s plenty of quirks for the inquisitive, too, with sling swings for exercise-minded parents, a mover’s class for the over-50s and insanity workouts taking place plus much more.
