National Fitness Day 2015

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Last year, I was a lucky enough to be a National Fitness Day ambassador.  I was thrilled when they contacted me again this year.  The goal is to make it the most active day of the year for UK residents.  Of course, working out with friends makes it a bit more fun and adds accountability (you can't stand up your friends).  There will be 100s of events taking place across the UK.  You can search for a free event near you- from boot camps, to dance classes, to pick up footie to swim classes.

It's not long now until National Fitness Day 2015 is here.  On 9th September, join me and Fat Girl's Guide to Running, Julie Creffield, as we lead you on a free 5K run though Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.  The route will pass the Olympic Stadium, Velodrome, Aquatics Centre and also go along the water front for a bit.

Join the Facebook event to stay up to date on what is happening with the event.

We will meet at 8:50am outside the East Twenty Cafe (neat the Orbit sculpture) for a 9am departure.  Please travel light as you will have to carry all of your personal belongings with you.  Download the RunGoApp and search for the 'National Fitness Day 2015' route to see where we will be running in the park.  All abilities and ages are welcome.  We will be taking it at a social pace, as the day is about encouraging activity rather than breaking world records.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate too.

If you can't join us, set aside time to do something to be active.  Tweet me and let me know what you get up to.  How are you getting your sweat on?  Did you encourage others to be active too?


  1. I can't make this but I will be sure to do something active that day! Enjoy the run! x

    1. Too bad Elle! I know the time isn't best for people who work, but I am working around my mom's visit. We will miss you!
