The Sweaty Betty Leeds store opens its doors for the first time today, bringing the latest run, yoga, swim and ski wear to the heart of Yorkshire. Located in the city’s stunning Victoria Quarter, as well as contemporary workout wear, the store also features a studio, packed with classes through the week.  

Classes in the studio:

Yoga 10.30-11.30am Mondays
Pilates 6-7pm Thursdays
Circuits 11.30-12.30pm Fridays

Ready for the grand opening of the store, here’s a lowdown on what Leeds has to offer...

Places to eat & drink
The Alchemist
Open all day for pre-shopping lattes to after work (or workout) cocktails, this cute cocktail bar is situated in the new Trinity Shopping Centre. With a heated outdoor terrace you can imagine you’re sipping Caipirinhas in warmer climes...
Laynes Espresso
If coffee and cake is the order of the day, Laynes Espresso serves up both in style. It has two cafes in the city – one on New Station St and the other in Belgrave Music Hall, complete with wifi and a roof terrace in the latter.
2 Oxford Place
From coffee and cake to afternoon tea and supper, 2 Oxford Place is the place in the city for coeliacs and gluten-free followers, serving up 100% gluten free recipes.
Filmore & Union
A go-to place for clean eating, Filmore & Union’s new Health to Go menu serves up a range of interesting and delicious recipes, packed with pure ingredients. Find the restaurant and takeaway express bar in the city's Victoria Quarter.
Places to visit
Victoria Quarter shops, including Harvey Nichols
The Victoria Quarter is the place for shopping in Leeds, home to Harvey Nichols, Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith, Ted Baker and Liz Earle as well as Sweaty Betty. Harvey Nichols features a rooftop café and bar which looks out over the city as well as a foodhall, so it’s the perfect place to wile away a few hours.
The Northern Ballet 
Set up in 1969 this Northern touring ballet company was originally set up to take on small-scale and classical works. Today it’s regarded as one of the world's greatest ballet companies. The current production is Dracula until 13 September at the West Yorkshire Playhouse followed by a touring production of The Great Gatsby.
Everyman Cinema 
A cute little cinema with cosy seating showing the latest films and some indie pieces, the Leeds Everyman is the first one outside of London.
The Corn Exchange
A beautiful Victorian building and Grade 1 listed structure, Leeds Corn Exchange is just one of three Corn Exchanges in the country which still operates in its traditional capacity as a centre for trade. Today it’s packed with fashion and gift shops, boutiques and restaurants.
Places to workout
Yoga Hero
Yoga Hero offers classes for everyone from yoga aficionados to complete beginners. Try the ‘Rocket Yoga’ class practised to dance music – it’s energetic enough to get your heart pumping yet still slow enough to get your alignment correct. 
Yoga Kula 
Run by SB Leeds store ambassador Angela Sykes, Yoga Kula offers everything from Ashtanga yoga to mum and baby classes. Kula means ‘family’ or ‘community’ in Sanskrit so you can expect a warm welcome.
Roundhay Park
The city’s flagship park is a great space for an outdoor workout. As one of Europe’s largest parks, it’s the perfect place to run.

Wharf Runners
Running is a great way to explore a city and this free weekly run in Leeds city centre hosted by SB ambassador Jayne Rodgers will give you the chance to see some of the sights. The group meets every Monday at 6.30pm at Wharf Chambers, a cafe bar on Wharf Street, and runs are usually 5k or over. 

Leeds to Liverpool Canal
The Leeds to Liverpool Canal runs for 127 miles, making it the longest canal in northern England. It's not only an ideal spot for a run, bike ride or walk, but also for a history lesson into the the local area and the Industrial Revolution. Constructed during 1770 - 1816, the canal linked up local textile towns with the port of Liverpool and the whole of the British Empire.

Hi are you looking for anymore Yoga classes.
