Celebrated on the first Saturday in June, National Health and Fitness Day provides an opportunity to embrace healthy physical activity. It is included in the National Health and Fitness Act which became law at the end of 2014.

As health and fitness continue to gain importance in our lives, communities across the nation are stepping up their efforts to promote well-being and an active lifestyle. In celebration of National Health & Fitness Day on June 3, 2023, cities around the country are joining hands to offer free access to their city-run gyms and pools. This initiative aims to encourage citizens of all ages and fitness levels to prioritize their health and experience the benefits of regular exercise and aquatic activities.

Regular physical activity is known to have numerous benefits for our overall health. By taking advantage of the free access to city-run gyms, individuals can explore various fitness options and discover activities that resonate with their interests and goals. Whether it’s weightlifting, cardio workouts, yoga, or group exercise classes, these facilities offer a wide range of options to cater to different preferences and fitness levels.

Furthermore, swimming and water-based activities in city-run pools provide a low-impact alternative for those who may have joint problems or physical limitations. Water workouts are gentle on the body while still delivering a great cardiovascular workout. Additionally, swimming is a fantastic full-body exercise that engages multiple muscle groups, enhances cardiovascular endurance, and promotes flexibility.

See you all at the gym!
