More People, More Active, More Often









About NFD

National Fitness Day will be the biggest and most visible annual celebration of physical activity of the year. It is the day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across Ireland.

It takes place on Monday 23rd September 2024.


Whether you are a gym operator, an equipment supplier, outdoor fitness provider, personal trainer, workplace, school, college, university or a member of the public, we want to get everybody spreading and enjoying the benefits of physical activity.

Your National Fitness Day event can be whatever you want it to be – from opening up a regular class to a free trial for new members, opening up an app for free, a virtual workout, all the way through to going for a world record.
