Member States’ ministers for Sport adopted conclusions on the economic dimensions of sport and its socio-economic benefits.
EuropeActive is organising the National Fitness Days within the European Week of Sport 2017 (EWoS), a European Commission initiative which promote sport and physical activity and encourages Europeans to #BEACTIVE on a regular basis, regardless of age, background and fitness level.
The National Fitness Days represent the contribution of the fitness sector to the EWoS: it will be an opportunity to present the economic and social potential of fitness.
Today we will introduce you to two National Fitness Days, taking place in the UK and Ireland.
EuropeActive invites all its British members to join the National Fitness Day on the 27th of September. After the success of the previous years, UKACTIVE will organise a bigger event for this 2017. It will be the UK’s Largest Physical Activity Celebration of the year.
National Fitness Day sees a huge range of activity options enjoyed by participants of all ages, such as ‘plank offs’, yoga and Pilates classes, treadmill challenges, high-street HIIT classes, dance-offs, mass walks, and many more.
IrelandActive is also celebrating the role that physical activity plays across Ireland on 29th of September 2017.
Irish National Fitness Day provides a platform for you to take a pledge to help get Ireland fitter. This year the aim is to make it the biggest event by inviting every community to get involved to make Ireland more active.
EuropeActive encourages the thousands of clubs, parks, leisure centres, and gyms across UK and Ireland to open their doors to welcome the public to get active on National Fitness Day.
So, grab a friend, family member, colleague, or team and join in on the most active day of the year to celebrate the fun of fitness!
