The day was founded by famous life- and career coach Kim Bielak in 2017 to dedicate a whole day to the importance of fitness. A big believer in the mind-body connection, Kim is also an active and passionate yoga teacher, having studied vipassana meditation and hatha and vinyasa yogic traditions through Zuna Yoga in Bali, where she received her 200-hour teaching certificate. She launched the first National Fitness Day in the US in 2017 to promote such empowerment through both physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Fitness in the during the Early National Period was influenced by Europe. Immigrants brought many aspects of their culture into the country, including Swedish and German gymnastics. It was in the 1800s that the idea of good health and fitness gained popularity. Since then, the United States took a huge step forward in terms of fitness in the 20th century. As sugars and fats increased in the diets of people due to the commercialization of food products, fitness became a prominent concept because people were becoming more aware of their health. Activity levels and food intake became measurable and thus controllable.

Early presidents also knew about the need for fitness and exercise. Benjamin Franklin recommended regular physical activities like swimming, running, etc., and Thomas Jefferson believed that fitness was a necessary requirement for a healthy life. Dr. Warren, a Harvard University medical professor, became a significant proponent of physical activities towards the end of the 18th century. Catherine Beecher was another important figure who devised fitness programs for the needs of women specifically.

During the 1950s, many organizations took up the challenge of educating people about the consequences of an unhealthy body. Various agencies have been involved in promoting fitness since the 1950s, including the American Medical Association (AMA), American Health Association (AHA), and President’s Council on Youth Fitness and American Association for Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (AAPHERD).
