September 25th is a day that marks focusing on women. More specifically, women’s health and fitness. It’s no secret that women often put their health and fitness to the side in order to make room for careers and caring for families. This means they need a reminder about how important their health and fitness is, even in connection to families and careers.

What is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day?

The third Wednesday of September every year focuses on bringing awareness to women’s health. More specifically, how important it is for them to be involved in regular physical activity and how that directly relates to their health. It’s the nation’s largest health promotion and events are offered at many places across the US around this time. Women will often find free or reduced health exams at around this date, along with exercise events/demonstrations, health information, and more. It’s said that around 50,000 women take part across the US on this day. This goes to show the importance of this day, in general, when it comes to women seeking support, help, and information on their health.

How Can I Help?

The best way to help is by first educating yourself and those in close contact with you. Learning about women’s health and how important their fitness is will allow you to have information to share that raises awareness. With it being such a big event, information online is easy to locate, including materials to help you navigate raising awareness. Another way to help is to get people involved in the events around your area. An organization or business is free to be a host for an event by registering online. Once registered is accepted, the company or business is free to associate itself with the official Women’s Health and Fitness Day organization. This means, the logo can be used, along with access to order official t-shirts, posters, samples, coupons, and much more.

With all the distractions women have these days, it can be difficult to stay up on pertinent and important information about their health. More specifically, what resources are available to them and what may be sitting right there in their own neighborhood that could be helping them. This day is a great way for local places to be known and get information out there so women know their options. Further, this event seeks to help women learn how to fit their health and fitness into their daily lives. They help them realize that they shouldn’t and don’t have to ignore their health. Instead, they should take control of their health to live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
