U.S. National Fitness Day

Date When Celebrated: This holiday event is held on the first Saturday in May


Do you want to live a longer, healthier life? Then, physical fitness should be one of your top priorities. National Fitness Day in the United States was created as a way to encourage us to get off the couch, turn off the television, and work out. According to the creator, the goal of this day is to "celebrate strength and empowerment through fitness". Today you are encouraged to "get your sweat on". 


Use today, to establish a regular routine of exercise, and to maintain a regular exercise schedule all your life. So, you think it's hard to begin a lifetime of regular workouts and physical exercise. You also might feel that it is hard to fit exercise into your already busy schedule. Absolutely no one will disagree with you. Getting started is the hardest part. Start out slow. Getting started can be painful. In the beginning, your body may immediately disagree with your "no pain, no gain" exercise plan. In the early days of your new workout routine, just remind yourself that you are adding many years onto your life. Then, in a little while some amazing things happen. The aches and pains subside, eventually going away entirely. All of a sudden, you feel better, much better. You are stronger, you have more energy, your endurance goes up, and you can do physical things you haven't been able to do in years.


So, on National Fitness Day, we energetically encourage you to begin your new workout and exercise routines.... for life!


Note: There are two "National Fitness" days. There is one in the U.S. in May. The other is in the United Kingdom, and is celebrated in September. It is great to have a day in these two countries, to promote physical health and well being. However, this is an issue for all human beings all over the planet. We might suggest that the creators of these two important holiday events, get together to expand this to an international holiday held annually on a single date. Short of that, we encourage people all over the world to celebrate both of these days by doing things to get healthy and to stay healthy.
