National Fitness Day encourages the nation to celebrate physical activity and the fun of fitness across the UK. 

This year's National Fitness Day is on Wednesday 26 September and is a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles.

National Fitness Day sees a huge range of activity options enjoyed by participants of all ages, such as ‘plank offs’, yoga and pilates classes, treadmill challenges, high-street HIIT classes, dance-offs, mass walks and many more.

We know the benefits of regular exercise and being active include a healthier heart, increased well being, and a better quality of life. However, many of us find getting fit and being active a struggle.

It becomes a challenge when it shouldn’t be – which is why you should get involved with National Fitness Day! It's a day highlighting the simple and easy steps you can make to become more physically active and all the while enjoy it - whether it's from the home to the high street or the office to the gym.

Research shows that if you exercise in company, you are more likely to stick at it; the social atmosphere creates a positive environment which is important in helping us to have fun.

So, grab a friend, family member, colleague, or team and join in on the most active day of the year to celebrate the fun of fitness!
