Aerobics Classes and Sports Nights
In addition to the basic facilities, city-run sports centers across Nagoya offer weekly aerobics classes and sports nights at one of Nagoya City’s Sports Center.

“Fureai Sports” sessions are also run by Nagoya sport centers. These allow the general public to try various activities at a cut price, including table tennis, badminton, 5-a-side football, and English aerobics. Sessions are usually on a first-come or a first-call-first-served basis.

The Nagoya City Education & Sports Promotion Agency (NESPA) advertises the “fureai sports” sessions, water aerobics, & aerobics lessons on its website and in its monthly pamphlet “Try Sports” available at the NIC’s 3F pamphlet boxes at the start of each month.
