This year National Fitness Day takes place on Wednesday 23 September 2020 – and is part of the Great British Week of Sport (Saturday 19 – Sunday 27 September). The aim of the campaign is to bring the nation together to celebrate the power that sport and activity has on physical, mental and social wellbeing.
