What is National Fitness Day?

National Fitness Day is the most active day of the year, it’s a day when people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities come together to celebrate the fun of fitness and also to recognise the incredible physical, social and mental benefits it brings to our lives. The campaign aims to inspire the nation to be active and to celebrate the positive impact being active has on our physical, mental and social wellbeing.

Last year, using the theme ‘Fitness Unites Us’, we inspired more than 22 million people across the whole of the UK to be active on the day – making it the biggest National Fitness Day yet. We will continue the Fitness Unites Us theme in 2022, demonstrating the inclusive power of physical activity and bringing people from all walks of life together, in every community. National Fitness Day also provides a platform to further demonstrate the force that the fitness and leisure sector can have by uniting on a single day – to drive awareness and activation to the public on the importance of leading a physically active lifestyle, while championing the role that individuals and organisations play in supporting better community cohesion.
