THOUSANDS of people are gearing up to take part in National Fitness Day later this month – the largest celebration of physical activity in the UK.
On Friday September 26, the nation will be a hive of activity as thousands of people don their exercise gear and flock to gyms, health clubs, leisure centres and parks around the country to take part in free ‘Power Half Hour’ exercise events.
Better Gyms, British Military Fitness, Club Company, Energie, Everyone Active, Fitness First, Lifestyle Fitness, Gym Group, Places for People, Pure Gym and Spirit Health Clubs are just some of the major fitness providers inviting the public to try a variety of free sessions at more than 1000 sites – from indoor cycling, exercise to music classes and swimming to yoga, boot camp and Pilates.
A series of mass participation events, run in association with Les Mills, will also be taking place in London, Birmingham and Bristol, where fitness fans will be able to enjoy BODYCOMBAT and SH'BAM sessions led by A-list instructors.
David Stalker, CEO of ukactive and director of National Fitness Day said: National Fitness Day is about removing the barriers by making physical activity enjoyable and open to anyone through free sessions, on their doorstep. If National Fitness Day can inspire people across the UK to move even just a little bit more, then we’re on our way to a happier, healthier nation.”
