The theme for the upcoming National Fitness Day 2023 - Your Health is for Life - aims to encourage people of all walks to recognise and celebrate the life-long physical and mental benefits of being active.

The annual campaign, co-ordinated by uk active, will be held in 20 September. It will see millions of people across communities inspired to be more active, with thousands of free activities hosted by gyms, swimming pools, leisure centres, sports clubs, workplaces, schools and online providers.

With the support of Movember and Endurance Zone, National Fitness Day 2023 will take a holistic view of the importance of health and wellbeing, focusing on three key areas:

  • Mental health,
  • Nutrition and recovery, AND 
  • Physical activity.

Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive, said the message behind National Fitness Day has never been more important for the nation’s physical and mental health.

"So we are delighted this year to welcome Movember and Endurance Zone as our campaign partners," said Edwards. 

"Your health is for life, so we want the benefits of National Fitness Day to extend far beyond our big day, and for everyone to experience the fun and the power of fitness throughout the year.  

"There is no one-size-fits all, so ukactive’s members will be hosting a huge variety of free events for people to try something new and take the first step to a healthier, happier life."

In 2022, National Fitness Day saw the participation of an estimated 11 million people, including over four million children and young people, and the total audience for the campaign hit more than 50 million through social media, TV, radio and the press.
