On Wednesday 26 September sports enthusiasts and health campaigners across the UK are coming together to promote National Fitness Day, highlighting the role physical activity plays in health and wellbeing.
The day will be officially launched at the City of London Corporation’s Guildhall Courtyard by ballerina and Strictly judge, Dame Darcey Bussell, who will guide hundreds of people through a 7am dance fitness routine. From this venue there will be fitness events throughout the day.
However, it doesn’t stop there, as organisations and business across the country are creating their own local events to champion the role of fitness in health. These include pilates and yoga classes, treadmill challenges, ‘plank offs’, dance-offs, mass walks and high street HIIT classes.
If you hold an event for National Fitness Day, we’d love to know!
After the event, please send in a couple of paragraphs about what you did, along with high-resolution pictures, so we can potentially give you a mention in International Therapist and/or online. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘National Fitness Day’ in the subject box.
We hope you have a great National Fitness Day!
