Join 2 million office workers across Britain with a day of moving while you work.

Take part in On Your Feet Britain - the national activity awareness day when 2 million desk-based workers across Britain participate in a variety of dun and simple activities to #SitLess and #MoveMore at work.

Wiggle it. Waggle it.
Just don't sit on it.

Taking place this year on Thursday 28 April 2022, with a NEW LOOK and revamped materials, plus a day of exciting active events to get us all moving more.

On Your Feet Britain is a FREE and FUN way to reboot and energize your workplace habits. This year we're looking forward to seeing how every worker gets active for the #BigWiggle - where your desk may be.

  • Enzymes responsible for burning harmful blood fats shutting down
  • Reduced calorie burning (Metabolic rate)
  • Disrupted blood sugar levels
  • Increased insulin and blood pressure levels
  • Leg muscles switching off.
