Fit For Life

The Daily Mile Fit For Life has been inspired by the success of the highly-acclaimed children’s health and wellbeing initiative, which was started by Elaine Wyllie in 2012 whilst headteacher of a large Scottish Primary school.  Fit For Life has been inspired by the Scottish Government’s pledge to become the first “Daily Mile Nation” – encouraging all childminders, nurseries, primaries, secondaries, colleges, universities and workplaces to take up The Daily Mile initiative.

Whilst The Daily Mile was originally envisaged as an initiative for children aged 2-11/12 years old, in nursery or primary school, The Daily Mile Fit For Life is a programme designed for those aged 11/12+, in various sectors. It isn’t about elite sport or exercise – it’s about going outside into the fresh air, in what you’re wearing, to get fit in 15 minutes of self-paced walking, jogging or running. In this time, most people will average a mile or more.
