Why We’re Supporting National Fitness Day 2015

September 4, 2015

Next week plays host to a very important day; particularly for us at SportInspired.

On Wednesday 9th September it is National Fitness Day and we, alongside many others, will be stepping up to show our full support for this campaign.

The day, led by ukactive*, will offer free events, classes and taster sessions in locations across the UK to entice the nation to get up, get involved and get active. ukactive’s aim is to make this the most active day of the year by working with various partners including charities, schools, and businesses. Together they will work to inspire and motivate more people to be more active more often.

This message resonates really strongly with us here at SportInspired where our vision is of connected communities where people enjoy being active. We exist to show people that sport, exercise and physical activity truly is fun and beneficial for everyone.

We run SportInspired Games Programmes which launch with an inspiring sports festival which helps children experience the excitement of mind-opening new sports. Businesses, schools, sports clubs, local authorities and other key stakeholders come together, ensuring even the least sporty and confident children find a sport they can connect with. The SportInspired legacy programme follows, where we work together to ensure longevity. This enables children to continue and pursue their chosen passion, supported by role models from local clubs, schools and businesses.

It is our strong belief that sport is a powerful tool for inspiring new connections, life skills and opportunities, not to mention the lifelong health benefits it brings on top of that. Executive Director of ukactive, Steve Ward, sums it up by saying, “There is nothing more important to the sector than celebrating the fun of fitness and engaging the public.”

Steve, we couldn’t agree more and that’s why SportInspired pledges their commitment and support to National Fitness Day.
