The EFL and EFL Trust have today launched an online FIT FANS campaign - providing a safe way for supporters to get active in the safety of their homes.
In support of Sport England’s ‘Stay in Work Out’ campaign, the programme will ensure fans have a safe way to start and maintain exercise, during this current period.
Over the next 12 weeks, we will feature sessions developed by two fitness coaches, releasing videos twice a week for supporters to follow and get involved with.
City fans will be following the lead of Scott Copeland and Steph Thompson from the Club Community Organisation (CCO) who will be putting them through their paces over the course of the programme.
According to new research released by Sport England, over 65 per-cent of people believe exercise is helping with their mental health, making an active lifestyle more important than ever for EFL fans and the nation.
The sessions will introduce the concepts of safe warm-up and cool-downs, increasing daily step counts and activity levels gradually, before moving onto sessions including aerobic strength and training.
The exercises will vary and be fun - giving supporters the chance to keep moving and see improvements in their fitness.
The sessions will be posted each Wednesday at 5.00pm and Saturday at 11.00am on the EFL and EFL Trust YouTube channels, and will be available for fans to watch at their own leisure within the safety of their own homes.
