Singapore has an incredible array of fitness, wellness and sport experiences and services. There is something for everyone, be that walking, running, or visiting different fitness studios, gyms, sports clubs, recreation centres or wellness facilities as they reopen across the country. From 19 August 2021 to 26 August 2021, SG Fitness Alliance will be launching the “Let’s Get Moving Singapore” movement along with Sport Singapore’s Get Active! Singapore.
Singaporeans are encouraged to prioritise enhancing our immunity, strengthening our body, rebuilding our social connections and improving our mental health.
Singapore’s fitness, wellness and sports industries play an essential role in the country’s health and wellbeing. ‘Let’s Get Moving Singapore’ focuses on seven important and inclusive messages:
- Exercise is Healthcare
- Make Your Health & Wellbeing A Priority Today
- Develop a Healthy Mind & Body
- Become Stronger for Your Family
- Strengthen Your Immunity & Your Community
- Lower Your Risk of Disease
- Live an Active & Happy Life
The national movement will see thousands of fitness, wellness and sports businesses and professionals stand in unity alongside the Singapore Fitness Alliance and Sport Singapore to encourage Singaporeans to get moving. You will be able to keep up across social media by searching for the hashtag #LetsGetMovingSG .
#LetsGetMovingSG is held in partnership with Sport Singapore’s ‘GetActive! Singapore’, as we work together for a common goal – ensuring a stronger and better Singapore for all through sport and physical activities.
