This year the campaign encourages people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to come together to recognise the importance of prioritising being active for our mental wellbeing as well as physical health.
The challenges posed by the cost of living crisis and the pandemic mean many people in the UK are facing tough choices every day, but by uniting through fitness, we can find the mental strength to help us cope.
Using the theme Fitness Unites Us, campaign organisers ukactive are encouraging fitness, sport and leisure providers across the UK to demonstrate the inclusive power of physical activity in bringing people from all walks of life together, in every community, with millions of people set to to try a new activity and take the first step, no matter how small, to living a more active life.
You can also get involved by posting photos or messages on social media, using #FitnessDay and sharing a message or picture showing how you stay active and why.
Huw Edwards , CEO of ukactive, which coordinates the campaign, said: “Today, we are all faced with our own personal challenges, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by events at home and abroad – from the cost of living crisis and rising energy bills, to global conflict and war, or environmental concerns.
“That’s why this year, National Fitness Day is the perfect reminder for all of us to prioritise our health and wellbeing, whatever the challenges we face. Your local gym, pool, leisure centre, sports facility or online provider can help you to take the first step towards improving your physical and mental health, as well as to connect with other people in your community because fitness has a wonderful ability to unite us. There are a huge range of options for everyone to try, with staff on-hand to inspire and support you, whatever stage you are at.”
