As we reach the autumn of what’s been a difficult 2020 for all of us, remaining physically active is more important now than it ever has been. For that reason, National Fitness Day 2020 is a wonderful chance for our communities to unite & stay active, together.
Sandwiched in the middle of The Great British Week of Sport , National Fitness Day is an annual celebration across the health & fitness industry, and is a fabulous opportunity to highlight the role that physical activity plays in maintaining mental & physical wellbeing across the UK.
Fitness day celebrates happiness & combines keeping fit with fun, engaging activities, and is widely recognised as one of the most enjoyable dates on the calendar. However, the day is underpinned by a serious message: The UK is currently battling an inactivity crisis, which has been exacerbated by the Coronavirus pandemic. Physical inactivity leads currently to more than 20 long-term health conditions such as type-2 diabetes, some cancers and osteoporosis & is a contributing factor for 1 in 6 deaths annually.
For this reason, we at Life Leisure are supporting the “Fitness Unites Us” message that underpins this years event. We are delighted to be able to announce a number of events & activities that we will be running on Wednesday September 23rd, across each of our centres. We are proud to announce that we are opening up our centres to non-members, enabling the public get involved & book onto our sessions.
All of the events running are free of charge, showcasing our desire to help get Britain moving & encourage as many local residents as possible to Join The Movement!
Across all of our open sites, staff, members & the general public are welcome to join us and participate in the exciting activities that we’ve got lined up!
