There are so many days of national celebration now – National Chips Day, National Pet Day, etc – that it’s easy to become almost immune to them. But precious few of them can surely claim to be as important as National Fitness Day.
National Fitness Day is fast approaching. On 25th September 2019, we’ll all get the chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles.
Physical activity can benefit us in ways way over and above simply getting physically fitter. It can help us connect to new people, networks and groups, making new friends. It can help with mental health issues such as depression; it can make us feel more confident, more aware, more awake, more alive!
One of KUDOS‘ core values is the belief that as many people as possible should be actively involved in sport, and to encourage exactly that. It doesn’t even have to be sport – just getting active, be it through walking or other types of exercise – is enough.
National Fitness Day sees a huge range of activities enjoyed by participants of all ages, such as ‘plank offs’, yoga and pilates classes, treadmill challenges, high-street HIIT classes, dance-offs, mass walks and absolutely loads more.
An Hour off Work?
You could even try to persuade your boss to get involved. It well-established that an active workforce is a happier and more productive workforce – so why not encourage your boss to embrace National Fitness Day by allowing staff to take 30 minutes or an hour that morning to get active. It could be a team walk, a run, or even just get moving at your desks.
There are loads of ways to get involved – check out the National Fitness Day website for a goldmine of events, activities and other ideas and ways in which you can join in on the day. Follow them on Twitter for more information and daily doses of inspirational stuff.
