The city's Sportspark is launching two new exercise groups to encourage people to try something new this year.
The first course at the Sportspark, at the University of East Anglia, starts today and will continue for 10 weeks.
The New Year New You Sports Challenge has been devised to allow participants to try a different sport each week to put their fitness ability and skills to the test.
The sessions will include circuit training, badminton, swimming, volleyball, Tai Bo, short tennis, aerobics, climbing, archery and yoga.
