People from Warwick district are being invited to take part in free fitness activities to mark National Fitness Day, the country’s most active day of the year.
National Fitness Day takes place on Wednesday September 25th and leisure centres across Warwick district, operated by Everyone Active in partnership with Warwick District Council are getting into the spirit of the occasion by offering free activity for the whole community.
The range of free activities includes:
- Adult beginners and adult and child swimming taster sessions at Abbey Fields Swimming Pool

Commenting on the National Fitness Day activities, Gareth Wagg, contract manager in Warwick district, said: “With more than 190 leisure facilities across the country, Everyone Active plays a big role in getting local communities active for this year’s National Fitness Day.
“We are excited to open our doors to the local community to people of all ages and abilities and give them the chance to try a range of activities for free. We hope they find something they really enjoy and will continue to get active in the future.”
The annual event aims to highlight the important role that physical activity plays in helping people lead happy, healthy lifestyles. It also encourages the nation to enjoy the benefits of physical activity which include improved health, weight management, happiness and well-being.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented;
“The Council is very pleased to support National Fitness Day and would like to encourage local people go along to their local leisure centre and find out what’s on offer. With our recent investment in the facilities at Newbold Comyn and St Nicholas Park and exciting plans for the expansion and improvement of Kenilworth’s leisure centres, we hope that in the coming years every day will be a ‘fitness day’ in our district.”
National Fitness Day is co-ordinated by not-for-profit health body ukactive and aims to get people all across the country participating in some form of physical activity.
