Teignbridge leisure centres are encouraging a healthy lifestyle by joining in with National Fitness Day on Wednesday 9 September.

Newton Abbot Leisure Centre, Broadmeadow Sports Centre and Dawlish Leisure Centre are providing free swims, gym sessions and other events for everyone as part of National Fitness Day.

People across the country will be given access to gyms, health clubs, leisure centres and park sessions throughout the UK in what is being billed as the country’s largest celebration of physical activity.

National Fitness Day 2015 will build upon the success of last year, where nearly 2,000 venues opened their doors to run free exercise sessions, with the campaign reaching 27 million people across the country.

With thousands of free events on offer, the aim is to inspire people to get moving while making it easy and fun to try something new with free taster sessions.
