It’s National Fitness Day, and it’s set to be the biggest unified fitness celebration in the UK!

Article By William Ledbury (WilliamLedbury)

The theme for National Fitness Day is ‘Fitness Unites Us’, as communities across the UK come together to celebrate their common interest in fitness and power – Especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Global Adventurer Bear Grylls kicked off the campaign this morning as he live-streamed a workout at The Coaling Jetty in front of the iconic Battersea Power Station and the River Thames. Grylls is showing his support for the campaign, as he looks to help get over 10 million people participating throughout today. 

Speaking about National Fitness Day, Grylls said: “There has never been a better time to understand the importance of physical activity and fitness in our lives.

“It’s been such a hard year for so many with the Covid-19 pandemic, but physical activity has helped millions of people to find connection and to stay strong, both physically and mentally.

“National Fitness Day is about making sure everyone has the opportunity to be more active, whether that’s in the great outdoors, through local fitness and leisure facilities, at school, in the workplace, or with an online workout at home.

“We hope to empower everyone to try something new and make a positive change to their life.”
