Did you know it’s National Fitness Day today? The aim of the day is to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, raising awareness of its importance in helping people lead healthier and active lifestyles. Across the country, people are participating in a huge range of activity options, such as ‘plank-offs’, yoga and Pilates classes, treadmill challenges, high-street HIIT classes, dance-offs, mass walks and many more. At my classes this week, we’ll be adding an element of competition by challenging ourselves to do a little bit more than before.
In case you wanted some motivational assistance, physical inactivity has been listed as a leading cause of preventable diseases and conditions such as type-2 diabetes, some cancers and osteoporosis.
But if this type of approach doesn’t work for you, how about noting how you feel before and after exercise? After the initial creaking, my body really enjoys moving and I feel more positive and settled afterwards. Tonight’s tap dance class certainly helps lighten my mood, when I catch sight of myself in the mirror, busting moves that look much better in my imagination!
