Mark National Fitness Day with these freebies from vitamins to gym deals

GETTING in shape has never been easier – or cheaper.

Today is National Fitness Day — and with the London Marathon just around the corner on October 3 — it’s time to up your game.

From free vitamins to gym deals, follow these tips to really reap rewards . . . 

D-DAY: Holland & Barrett is giving away a free bottle of vitamin D with every vitamin or supplement purchase in store or online today.

MAKE A RUN FOR IT: Jogging costs nothing and is one of the easiest ways to up your cardio. But if seems like a chore, try an app to spice things up. The NHS Couch To 5k is still my favourite and it’s free. Get going now!

RAID YOUR CUPBOARDS: Heavy kitchen items, such as milk cartons and tins of tomatoes, can be used as makeshift dumbbells, helping you to up your resistance training without the gym. However, Argos also has 20 per cent off lots of fitness equipment right now, including dumbbells and kettlebells.

GYM AND BEAR IT: Check your local gym for a free day pass or any special offers. At my nearby Fitness First, I can take a friend for free today. Anytime Fitness is hosting a free nationwide open day across its 175-plus gyms. For details see

WORKOUT AT HOME: Try Les Mills fitness classes free for 14 days. Then save 75 per cent off your first month. Meanwhile, TRX is offering 12 months free and unlimited access to on-demand workouts. It is also offering a heavily discounted price of £99.95 for 12 months’ full and unlimited access to TRX Training Club classes, as well as a free Pro4 Suspension Trainer — a saving of more than £300. Just visit by Friday.

TRACK YOUR STEPS FOR LESS: At £34.99, the new Xiaomi Mi Smart 6 band fitness tracker is a lot cheaper than, say, the Garmin Forerunner 945, which will set you back £429.99. I know which one I’d rather wear.
