National Fitness Day: How to Get Involved


National Fitness Day 2017 begins on Wednesday 27th September and MyLocalPitch is playing its role in getting the nation active. Appreciating the physical and mental benefits of taking part in exercise is vital to the health of the country.

In honour of #FitnessDay, the MyLocalPitch team are taking on ukactive, the organisers of National Fitness Day, in a 5-a-side game at our very own Three Corners Adventure Playground.

Over the past two years the initiative has encouraged people to get into physical activity by offering FREE mass participation events across the UK. Sports venues keen to take part have listed their interests on NationalFitnessDay.com. National Fitness Day is a time for people to revel in the fun of fitness and enjoy moving about. 

Here are a few of our favourite events taking place this week that you can get involved in:
