The main driver for National Fitness Day is to ensure everyone has the opportunity and access to be more active, whether that’s in the great outdoors, through local fitness and leisure centres, at school, in the workplace or through an online workout at home.
Now in it’s tenth year, National Fitness Day is a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping to raise awareness of its importance and to lead happier, healthier lifestyles through being physically active.
Running helps us to get outdoors, be active and get fit. Whether you have signed up to Couch 2 5k or you’re an elite runner, the benefits of running contribute significantly to our mental health and wellbeing. There is no better feeling than lacing up, getting outdoors and enjoying the sport we love.
You can’t beat the feeling and endorphins we get from a run whether that is one or twenty miles.
Everyone has a different goal and a different reason why they run but one thing is for sure, we all share a common goal - we want to get fit and active.
For some, running helps us to un-wind and de-stress, take some time out of our busy day-to-day lives and have some time to reflect while for others, it helps us to improve our fitness, get stronger and live longer, happier lives. Maybe it is all of these reasons.
Whatever your goal, there is no better day to lace up and go for a run or complete one of our Pilates classes inside the mymo app! Happy National Fitness Day!
Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving and here, we are taking the chance to celebrate everything that running can give to us.
What does your running week look like? What goals are you training for? Do you mix your miles up with some easy, steady and tempo sessions?
