In spite of being passionate foodies, people living in Parma are also very keen on their good shape and can find in town a wealth of places to keep fit: large green spaces to run like the Cittadella or the Ducal Park, gyms, swimming pools and health clubs to indulge in treatments. The town is host to a wide range of sporting facilities, including the Palaraschi indoor stadium, several football grounds, tennis courts, athletics centres and cycling tracks.

Football fans can always check out their favourite local team Parma Calcio 1913, playing in the B Series, at the Tardini stadium. If you prefer watching rugby, the city is represented by two teams: Zebre Rugby and Parma Rugby Fc, belonging to a long tradition of rucks, scrums and kicks.

Active holiday lovers can try their hand at a round of golf at the Golf club Santa Elisabetta in the University Campus of Parma or in Salsomaggiore and Sala Baganza or ski on the slopes of Schia and Prato Spilla. Those wishing to indulge in the need for speed can try a session at the Paletti motor racing track of Varano and at the Crossdromo of Lesignano Bagni. Or if like a mix of sport and relax, hop on a horse in one of the several riding schools or follow treks exploring the hills and parks in the province.
