Padiham Primary School celebrated National Fitness Day in style by dressing in their best sports wear ready to attack a series of action packed activities.

The children took part in tough physical circuit sessions and were then treated to a special assembly about the benefits of healthy eating and exercising.

Leading each fitness session was Burnley Football Club coach, Paige Costello, who put the youngsters through their paces with a series of press ups, planks and squats.

National Fitness Day was founded in 2011 and sees a huge range of activity options enjoyed by people of all ages who take part in a range of challenges.
