People from across Westminster are being invited by Westminster City Council & Everyone Active, which operates seven leisure centres across the borough, to enjoy free fitness classes and Personal Training taster sessions to mark National Fitness Day on Wednesday 25th September.

National Fitness Day is the country’s biggest celebration of physical activity. The annual event, which is co-ordinated by ukactive, encourages the nation to enjoy the benefits of physical activity which include improved health, weight management, happiness and wellbeing. 

Last year National Fitness Day helped to get more than four million people active across 20,000 free events – making it the most active day of the year in the UK. This year aims to encourage even more people to get active with a host of free activities on offer.

Andy Davison, Contract Manager – Westminster, Everyone Active said; “National Fitness Day is a great way to remind us of the enjoyment of exercise and we hope our free fitness sessions and PT tasters will encourage people to come along.
