Weekend Challenge- National Fitness Day #fitnessday

Friday, September 19, 2014

Friday 26th September is National Fitness Day, set up by  uk Active and Les Mills.  Numerous gyms and leisure centers are opening up their doors and offering free sessions to get people moving.  You can 'Find a power half hour' by post code for an event near work or home.

I am happy to say I am a National Fitness Day ambassador.  Look for tweets from me and some of my fellow fitness friends with #fitnessday.

Run by not-for-profit health body ukactive, National Fitness Day sees the health and active lifestyle community unite to raise awareness of the benefits of physical activity, inspire people to get active and make it easy and fun to try something new with free taster sessions.  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 from indoor cycling, exercise to music classes and swimming to yoga, boot camp and pilates. 

The ‘National Fitness Day Power Half Hour Sanofi Challenge’ will be judged by a VIP panel who will consider criteria such as of the number of participants, creativity and innovation, age range of participants, celebrity involvement and clever use of space. The winning team will be announced on Friday 3rd October and take home the title of “National Fitness Day Sanofi Challenge Winner.”
On 26th September, ukactive will also stage ‘National Fitness Day LIVE in association with Les Mills’; a series of mass participation and showcase exercise events engaging hundreds of people in London (Covent Garden), Birmingham (Victoria Square) and Bristol (Centre Promenade) from 12:30pm. ‘National Fitness Day LIVE’ is supported by Sanofi and their Sanofi Challenge programme, which encourages everyone to get out of their comfort zone and take on a physical challenge to improve their health and the lives of others.
Your weekend challenge is to get involved!  Use the class finder to find something near you.  I will be leading classes at Mill Hill School Enterprises.  Hope you get active soon.
