National Fitness Day Preview
Put a note in your diary, September 26th is officially National Fitness Day! Obviously were just that little bit keen on fitness here at Fitness Fan so anything that can promote fitness & exercise to a wider audience as possible gets our vote.
So, what is National Fitness Day?
Put simply it involves literally hundreds of sports clubs, leisure centres, parks & other open spaces welcoming and offering free ‘Power Half Hour’ taster sessions. Anything from Spin & Zumba to Body Combat & Swim Relays to anyone that wants to try them and for people of any level of fitness.
We know that regular exercise can contribute to a better quality of life both physically & mentally. But many of us, particularly if you’re new to getting fit can find it a lonely & daunting slog. This is where National Fitness Day comes in. Research has proven that by exercising in groups or with a partner means you’re more likely to stick at it, creating a more positive atmosphere & having more fun!
If you’re interested in participating in the largest celebration of physical activity in the UK then why not check out the website here for more information & events going on in your local area. With so many chain clubs, local centres & parks taking part there is something on your doorstep.
