It's National Fitness Day – and BetterPoints hits 1 BILLION calories burned!

Michael Grimes - 23 September 2020

Today is National Fitness Day, a UK-wide celebration of healthy physical activity.

And just yesterday, the number of calories burned by our app users passed ONE BILLION! We couldn't have timed that better if we tried! What's more, to get to that billion mark you have collectively travelled more than 11 million miles on foot or by bicycle!

Today, people across the nation, of all ages, shapes and sizes, are being similarly active – enjoying fun activities such as ‘plank offs’, pilates classes, treadmill challenges, high-street HIIT classes, dance-offs, and mass walks.

If you haven't been active today already – or even if you have! – you can still mark National Fitness Day with a walk round the block, a cycle to the shops or some star jumps in your bedroom. 

If you need a bit of inspiration, take a look at what other people are doing.

And don't forget to take your BetterPoints app if you go outside, you wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to earn rewards while you're getting your exercise!
