National Fitness Day 2023: Your Health is for Life

September 12, 2023

This National Fitness Day, we are encouraging people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to experience the power of fitness, with a range of indoor and outdoor physical activities.

This year’s theme ‘Your Health is for Life’ encourages you to take the first step on a much bigger journey to better health for life by keeping active.

The campaign will take a holistic view of the importance of health and wellbeing, focusing on three interrelated areas of: mental health, nutrition and recovery; and physical activity.

Speaking ahead of National Fitness Day on Wednesday 20 September, Lord Mayor Alderman Margaret Tinsley said:

“We want the buzz around National Fitness Day to extend far beyond the day itself, therefore we encourage people to get active and have fun with the range of activities being offered in our leisure facilities across the borough.

“We know that taking the first step can be difficult but rest assured, our experienced fitness instructors will be on hand to welcome and guide anyone who is new to physical exercise.

“If on the other hand, you are a fitness enthusiast, we ask that you encourage and motivate others who are starting out on their journey to better health and wellbeing through exercise!” 

From drop-in gym sessions, open spin and circuits sessions to fitness checks, cycling, cardio and yoga, there is something for all walks of life being offered across the borough. There are lots of ways to get involved and the key to success is finding something you enjoy.

Individuals, schools and businesses are welcome to get involved in National Fitness Day activities! Visit here to find out more!
