Better leisure centres offer FREE activities to celebrate National Fitness Day 2021

Better leisure centres in Merton are supporting National Fitness Day on Wednesday 22nd September 2021 by offering a range of free activities.

Now in its 10th year, National Fitness Day is run by leisure industry body UKActive and aims to encourage the nation to get moving and shine a light on the many benefits that being active can offer.

This year, National Fitness Day will continue under the theme ‘Fitness Unites Us’, demonstrating the inclusive power physical activity can have in uniting people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to have fun, keep active and maintain a healthy lifestyle – physically, mentally, socially, and even emotionally.

Better’s free activities in Merton include:


Free gym sessions between 10-11am and then between 8-9pm

Free fitness swimming – between 11:50am – 1pm

And a free Circuits class from 12:15 – 1:05pm


Free Body Conditioning class with Yvonne at 10:45

Free gym sessions between 10-12 pm and then between 8-10pm


Commenting on the initiative James Brackenborough Better partnership manager for Merton said:

“It’s been an incredibly turbulent and challenging time. National Fitness Day 2021 gives us a chance to reset for the future, showcasing how fitness and exercise can help contribute to the nation’s recovery.  We hope our free sessions will encourage those who perhaps aren’t used to playing sport or going to the gym, to give it a try and reap the physical, mental and social benefits that exercise and movement can offer.”
