Icon Health Clubs (winners of National Gym Club Operators of the Year), have joined forces again this year with Ireland Active in a bid to get as many people active as possible on Thursday 27th September, which marks the third National Fitness Day in Ireland.
In 2016, Iconic Health Clubs kick started the first National Fitness Day hosting the largest Fit Ball Class in the world with over 433 participants from far and wide.
They even claimed the Guinness World Record for the event and put the Irish fitness industry firmly on the map.
The Guinness World Record-holding team from Iconic Health Clubs will be taking to the stage once again this year in Dublin’s Grand Canal Docks as part of a full day of free fitness classes open to everyone of all fitness levels.
“We are so excited to be involved in National Fitness Day again this year. Many of us find getting fit a challenge and it shouldn’t be – that is why our team are so excited about getting involved on National Fitness Day. We hope it will give people the platform to try out our
clubs and to pledge to get fitter.
“If you’re around, give it a try and make that commitment to yourself”, Ciara Lefroy, Director of Iconic Health Clubs.
The purpose of the event is to give people the opportunity to try new activities and possibly kick start a fitness habit that they will continue after National Fitness Day. According to the World Health Organisation, this type of initiative is imperative to counteract the lack of physical activity both in Ireland and Europe. The Fitness industry is now considered by the European Institutions as one of the most recognised sectors to help in the fight against physical inactivity.
In addition, Iconic Health Clubs will be opening their doors on National Fitness Day, to the community so they can try out their facilities including group classes, free swims and other free sessions.
If you want to get involved, contact Iconic Health Clubs for further details or book your free space at Grand Canal Docklands via Eventbrite.
Alternatively, why not organise a lunchtime walking group, walk or cycle to work, or if you commute by bus or rail why not get off at an earlier stop and enjoy some fresh air.
Get your workplace involved by organising a work place challenge or charity event, or maybe you have space outside your office.
Activities could include 5-a-side football, rounders, plank challenge or a dance marathon.
