National Fitness Day In Collaboration With
The Hood Fitness Challenge
THE HOOD FITNESS Challenge is part of National Fitness Day, which will take place on Wednesday 22nd September. The event will highlight different types of exercise and movement, raising awareness of the importance of physical activity and how it will help the whole UK to lead healthier lifestyles.
Super-A, David Lloyd and Nuffield Health want to make Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F) the fittest borough in the UK. We know what it takes – our experience speaks for itself. Our six-exercise challenge, when carried out with intensity, will reap big fitness rewards. It is a super short challenge that will prove to be the fastest route to a lifelong fitness habit.
Super-A is donating all monies raised to our chosen charity – Fulham Good Neighbours. It’s a sad fact that one in four (or 2.9 million) people aged 65 and over feel that they have no one to turn to for help and support. Fulham Good Neighbours address this problem and provide help to people who are facing later life alone.
Working with the Best
WHEN TWO HORSES work together, they can pull a higher gross weight than each one alone could – that’s the power of collaboration.
Hood Fitness is a collaborative circle between UKactive and the most prominent gym groups in Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F) Borough to make this year’s National Fitness Day a community event.
Having a sense of community unites us, connects people for the greater good and inspire others to contribute to society.
Studies have proven it: fitness challenges can improve your performance (and motivation). About two-thirds of adult Britons are overweight or obese. Losing weight is easy; keeping it off is hard.
We believe that the most important incentive to encourage people to lead a healthier, more active life is – accountability. We want to galvanise unity; a feeling that we’re in this together.
David Lloyd has enabled their members-only app to be publicly available for the campaign’s duration; the epitome of ‘Putting People First.
‘Everyone wants to be a Super-A; otherwise, what is the point in exercising?’

Fulham Good Neighbours
SUPER-A’s chosen charity is Fulham Good Neighbours who recently received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
Since 1966 Fulham Good Neighbours has provided older people and people with disabilities with neighbourly support. They are supporting Fulham residents in their homes, gardens, community and online.
They do what any good neighbour would: collect medication, escort to appointments, accompany shopping and take care of pets, to name just a few of their free services. They also run a dedicated befriending scheme, a Digital Inclusion project and a range of social clubs to help beat isolation and loneliness.
