If you are looking to build your fitness in the New Year or perhaps shed a few pounds post-Christmas, why not join Leicester Tigers Fit Fans programme and get in shape at Welford Road.
The new-look Leicester Tigers Fit Fans programme returns this evening (January, 8) and is open to anyone looking to kickstart their fitness in 2018.
From learning new workouts to meeting new friends, Fit Fans can help you.
We caught up with Sam Swift and Jake Griffin of the Tigers community team to find out what members can expect from the new programme.
Sam is the health and inclusion manager at Leicester Tigers and leads the team delivering Fit Fans alongside Jake, who works part-time with the community department.
What is Fit Fans all about?
Sam: “Fit Fans is all about getting into shape in an environment that is inclusive, friendly and fun.
“We work closely with groups to develop workouts and exercises that incorporate different muscle groups to give you a real work out.”
What’s new for 2018?
Jake: “We’re excited to welcome more new faces to the group as well as regulars who are part of the Fit Fans community. This year, we’ll be encouraging some competition among members as well as sharing workouts and exercises that members can take away and do in their own time.”
Sam: “Due to the group’s popularity, we’re also looking to add to our team, bringing in a new health officer who will focus on things such as nutrition and promoting a healthy lifestyle so everyone can get the most out of our sessions.”
How do people get involved?
Jake: “Fit Fans is a 10-week programme, with sessions every Monday taking place at 6.00pm and 7.00pm for separate groups. Programmes are priced at £30 for Tigers season ticket holders and £40 for members of the public, and you’ll be added to our mailing list to receive our weekly fit fans e-newsletter.
“There, you’ll get access to each session’s content and helpful ideas around making healthier decisions, nutrition advice and how to add more physical activity to your day.”
