Women of Australia (ok guys, you too) are being encouraged to take part in a global celebration of Active Living on Sunday 28 September for Active Nation Day, a unique day dedicated to improving women’ss health and creative a more active world.

Now in its third year, Active Nation Day is the initiative of leading activewear label, Lorna Jane, and encourages women to get out and get active to improve both their physical and mental health.

Launched in 2011, Active Nation Day has become such a success that the day will be celebrated across Australia as well as the United States and Asia as women around the world follow the lead of Aussie women.

In Australia, free group fitness classes will be held in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth to encourage women to embrace Active Living.

A ‘MOVE NOURISH BELIEVE Market’ will be held after the workout concludes, featuring a series of stalls selling products to help women live their very best active lives. Fresh juices, post-workout snacks, natural skincare, coffee and healthy food will be available for guests to purchase.

Each state has a different host that will be performing a mixture of routines! Sydney has former Miss Universe Australia, Renae Ayris; who is going to help us get those Summer bods, along with the Base Body Babes (read more about the trainers here

“Active Nation Day is about putting your health first and acknowledging the importance of moving your body, nourishing your body and believeing in yourself,” she said.

“We’re thrilled to have such amazing hosts supporting Active Nation Day that are great examples of women that are proud to prioritise their health and fitness.”

Those that are unable to make it to the events can still participate in Active Nation Day and become part of the global movement by downloading the Lorna Jane App and tracking their movements, which will be added to an international tally.
