This Wednesday, September 25 2013 marks the 12th annual National Women’s Health and Fitness Day. This is the largest annual health promotion for women in America, and an estimated 100,000 women of all ages will participate in local health and fitness events. These events will be held at senior centers, hospitals, health clubs, park and recreation districts, local health and service organizations, schools, retirement communities, houses of worship, and other community locations.
The goal of this event is to encourage women to take control of their health: to learn the facts they need to make smart health choices, and to make time for regular physical activity. But more important than increased awareness of our health and fitness needs is the opportunity to make a lasting change toward better lifelong health.
What will you do? Will you participate in an organized health and fitness event this Wednesday or celebrate in your own way?
