Yvonne Clay, Centre Director at Gunwharf Quays, said: ‘We are delighted to host Sweat’s sixth Fitness Festival at Gunwharf Quays. Health and wellbeing is so important for our teams at the centre, our community, and our guests – to work with a local business that is passionate about wellbeing, gives us the opportunity to offer something new, educational, and inspiring.

‘We can’t wait to try all the fun-fuelled fitness activities and feel honoured to welcome Paralympic Gold medallist Lauren Steadman.’

Sweat was created in 2015 with the intention to redefine the gym experience.

The health and fitness business uses their platform to help the community, society, environment and planet.

Luke Newton, Co-Founder of Sweat, added: ‘Gunwharf Quays is the perfect new home for our Fitness Festival, with stunning views and a large outdoor area in the heart of Portsmouth.
