There's something for everyone in this year's vast array of National Fitness Day festivities

With more venues open to the public, thriving grassroots scenes and a dizzying array of activities to choose from, sports and fitness have become an indispensable part of Chinese people's lives over the past decade.

Now China is upping its game even further, with the 14th National Fitness Day on Monday energizing the nation.

As part of the celebrations, over 4,000 themed fitness and grassroots sports activities have been held in 31 provinces and municipalities in recent weeks, while another 100-plus activities have been launched online.

The themed activities range from the likes of basketball, soccer, long-distance running and winter sports adapted for summer to more traditional Chinese elements such as martial arts, tai chi and folk dance.
