September 27th, 2017 is National Fitness Day in the United Kingdom – an event that encourages the nation to celebrate the fun of fitness and physical activity and raises awareness of its importance to our health and our overall lives.
Founded by the énergie Group in 2011 and presently hosted by UK Active, National Fitness Day aims to be the most active day of the year. People and businesses alike are encouraged to get involved through events, activities, and other awareness campaigns to promote the benefits of active lifestyles.
The SportsArt Challenge
For National Fitness Day 2017, SportsArt UK is once again working with the Rainbows Children’s Hospice. Participants are welcome to visit the SportsArt UK Offices to hop onto our ECO-POWR™ cardio equipment and start working up a sweat. Up to 74% of energy generated while on our equipment is converted into utility-grade electricity and returned to the power grid, helping fitness facilities to become more sustainable.
These watts can also be tracked by looking at the individual equipment’s display and using the SA WELL+™ system. Every watt generated will go towards a donation to the Rainbows Children’s Hospice to help support life-limited children and their families. The target goal is 1000 watts!
Details on the Rainbows Children’s Hospice and the event are below. We hope to see you there!
