Ringing in Hope hosts its New Year’s Eve race at Brambleton Town Center on December 31. And because it technically takes place in 2015, you can get a jump-start on your healthy New Year’s resolutions a day early. There are three start times, so depending on your age and skill level you can participate in the 1k fun run and walk, the 5k race or the 10k race. Proceeds benefit these local charities, so not only are you helping yourself, you’re helping those in need too! For more info and to register, visit Ringing in Hope.

Of course it wouldn’t be a healthy New Year’s roundup without recommending a gym membership. Brambleton Sport & Health is our favorite gym in the area because it offers something for everyone: Group fitness classes for those who like to be pushed, one-on-one personal trainers work with you and your goals for the year, studio Pilates and yoga, plus a pool, basketball court and volleyball court for those who thrive in competition. Definitely take advantage of Brambleton Sport & Health’s free 3-day membership so you can try the facilities to see if it’s the right fit for you.

You will definitely have so much fun that you’ll want to come back, and Bella Ballerina has great prices on 6-class passes and 6-week unlimited classes. For more details, visit Bella Ballerina.
We don’t know how long it will last, but it’s been a mild winter thus far and more people are taking advantage of the warm temperatures by using the 12 miles of trail around Brambleton to exercise. If you need cardio, you can find plenty of trail to give the treadmill or elliptical a break and hit the pavement. If you’re in need of comfortable running shoes or a new bicycle, head to The Next Step and Bicycle Outfitters at Brambleton Town Center. Find the Brambleton trail map here.
