With National Fitness Day only weeks away, there are plenty of positive exercise opportunities to experience before September 26 arrives.
The event hopes to encourage more Irish people to practice regular exercise by participating in free activities in leisure centres, gyms, parks, workplaces and clubs.
Aura Leisure are a huge part of the nationwide movement for a healthier, happier Ireland. The Aura Group operates eleven Aura Leisure centres around the country, and are running a series of activities to celebrate the vital week in the fitness calendar.
A spinathon in Aura Trim will take place, with donations going towards the Irish Heart Foundation on September 24. Aura Tullamore will allow members to bring a friend for free to their classes and blood pressure checks will be running throughout the day of September 31.
A healthy snack sale and a healthy heart nutrition talk will take place in Aura Navan on September 25, and Aura Leitrim are holding a Mini Duathlon on September 27 which the whole family can take part in. There is also the Family Inflatable Fun Swim and free fitness classes at Aura Grove Island and much more. Find the full list of activities taking place across the eleven leisure centres here.
The Aura Group has partnered with the Irish Heart Foundation to contribute to their annual fundraising efforts, including the events for National Fitness Day to support the Foundation's work.
