In the aftermath of the Rio Olympics, we asked readers to give us their suggestions for the best places to stay fit, enjoy sport and get in shape. Here’s what they said...

Rick Poppa: Roundhay Park. The tennis courts, park run, cricketers on Soldiers field - this place has it all!

Matthew Anderson: Otley Chevin climb. I was racing up there with Alastair (Brownlee) yesterday! haha

Debbie Ayres: Idle, Bradford. It’s not Leeds but I met the lovely Vicky Holland (triathlete) this morning.

John White: PureGym is the best place where you can get fit. That’s how Olympians do it - not that I can claim to being as fit as them!

Gemma D: Roundhay Park has it all. I go there regularly to run and try and stay fit.

Sally Hart: The best place is my back garden. I can do everything there - and it’s free of charge!

Bill Johnson: I play tennis regularly and find that helps a lot.

Danny Gunn: Leeds has loads of places. Parks to run, gyms to train and plenty of sports facilities on offer. I play five-a-side football and also hit the gym twice a week.

Ethan Knowles: Roundhay Park is decent for runs. It’s also got tennis courts which are good.

Mike Watson: Kirkstall Leisure Centre provides everything for a relatively cheap price.

Dean Wilson: There’s loads of parks in Leeds - no excuses!
