THE Greig Leisure Centre in Alcester is set to offer free exercise classes on Wednesday, September 22 as part of National Fitness Day 2021.

Throughout the day the leisure centre which is run by Everyone Active in partnership with Stratford-on-Avon District Council, will be providing free group cycle classes, which will be available for members and non-members.

Everyone Active’s contract manager, Alex Fuoco-Lang, said: “We’re delighted to get behind National Fitness Day. It’s a fantastic opportunity for people to try out a new activity or class for free and to celebrate the benefits of being active.

“This initiative has been supported by Everyone Active for several years and we’re really pleased to see it continue to grow.

"This year is a chance to celebrate leisure activity in all forms and we’re excited to welcome the local community to get active at our centres.”

Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive, which coordinates the campaign, said: “National Fitness Day has become the most active day of the year, powered by our incredible physical activity sector, helping millions to create habits that last a lifetime.

“Following the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, physical activity has never been so important to our wellbeing, supporting our physical and mental health as well as bringing communities together through the fun of fitness.

“We hope this year’s National Fitness Day will be celebrated in every corner of the UK, shining a spotlight on the essential role that fitness has in our future.”
