The Bristol Rovers Community Trust are delighted to announce the launch of a new life-changing health and fitness project.
The Fans4Life project aims to improve the health and well-being of the people of Bristol and South Gloucestershire using an exercise and education programme.
Sessions will be run by fitness coach Mark Hammond, who has previously worked with the Bristol Rovers first team.
The first ten week course will start in September with sessions taking place at the Memorial Stadium and Fairfield High School.
Head of Education Adam Tutton said: “The Fans4Life course aims to engage those men for whom the gym and traditional diets do not appeal.
“The project will help sports fans who do very little exercise, and are overweight, to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle.
“Research has shown that taking part in this programme could add 6 seasons to a fan’s life.”
The programme is being supported and evaluated by the University of Gloucester, and there will be free health screenings as part of the course.
The course is aimed at men, but is open to anyone not comfortable with traditional weight loss classes.
