What Is Fit Friday & Why Is It Important?

Wear Your Activewear To Work Day – Fit Friday

 

Fit Friday is something we do every day here at Lorna Jane and we’re sharing the love (and fantastic benefits!) with everyone by introducing Fit Friday. 

 

So, what is Fit Friday? It’s a proactive wellness initiative where companies encourage their team to wear their Activewear to work on Fit Friday (the last Friday of every month). Easy!

 

Why?

 

We’re super passionate about educating, encouraging and empowering people to live happier and healthier lifestyles. So we want to make it as easy as possible for people to prioritise their health and fitness. 

 

We launched the Active Living Program at the beginning of this year to remove the barrier of cost, so our next stage is to create additional opportunities for people to be more active during their day. Considering we spend so much time at work, the answer seemed simple – Let’s bring Active Living into the workplace! 

 

We’re all busy and have a million things on the go, so we need to make it simple and convenient to be active and to consider our health when we’re making decisions through the day. Wearing Activewear to work is a super easy way to achieve this.  Because our mind associates wearing Activewear with being active!

 

You will be more motivated to get up and move around, go to people’s desks to ask questions and to take the stairs.  You’re more likely to go for a walk at lunchtime and ditch the 4pm excuses, because you’re able to head straight out to the gym, to walk the dog or to your favourite class. You’re also more mindful about decisions you make about your health and wellbeing.

 

You will also be more productive and motivated at work – because you’re comfortable and energetic!

 

But it’s more than being comfortable and going for walks (although that is awesome). It’s also about promoting and supporting a healthier, happier workplace all-round. We all know that health statistics are alarming and lifestyle diseases are still on the rise. By introducing healthy habits through the day that are simple, people are more likely the carry them on at home. Plus you have the support of your whole team to help inspire, motivate and keep you on track!
