Mark Warnes, chief executive of Active Northumberland said:  “An active lifestyle has so many benefits for mind as well as our body. It can make us happier, improve our sleep, help us connect with other people, reduce stress and raise our energy levels as well as reducing the risk of many chronic illnesses.”

“This National Fitness Day we invite everyone across Northumberland to unite and celebrate the fun of fitness and feel-good activities.

"Please come and try a free swim or fitness class, or have a free health and wellbeing check on the day. Our team are on hand and ready to help everyone take the first step to living a more active life.”
