Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are once again providing supporters with a platform to get healthy ahead of the summer through their popular Fit Millers programme which begins again in May.
Are you aged 35-65 and want to tackle your weight? Make a change in the company of like-minded Millers this summer by enrolling for a 13-week fitness journey this May as part of our Fit Millers programme – all whilst doing so at the club’s home at AESSEAL New York Stadium!
The club will be running programmes for both men and women this year which kick off on 20th May and 17th May respectively and still have limited places available should you wish to sign up.
The project is derived from the EFL’s Fit Fans initiative and uses interest in football to attract adults aged 35-65 to a 13-week healthy lifestyle multi component programme delivered by coaching staff at their local professional football club charity.
Lockdown has been tough for us all and you won’t be the only one who has put on a few extra pounds throughout the last 12 months, however, Fit Millers will bring together others in a similar situation and those looking to generally just get fitter.
The programme aims to help football fans achieve significant long-term improvements in weight loss, physical activity, diet and psychological wellbeing.
The men’s programme gets under way on Thursday 20th May 2021 with sessions running from 6pm until 7:30pm, whilst the women’s kicks off on Monday 17th May 2021 and also runs from 6pm until 7:30pm.
Places are free to and are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Rotherham United Community Sports Trust’s Health Co-ordinator Ryan Canadine explained that he is looking forward to welcoming physical groups back to AESSEAL New York Stadium and the opportunity to bring people together with a common goal of getting fitter this summer.
Ryan said: “It will be fantastic to see groups of both men and women back together for the latest Fit Millers programme”.
“Whether you’re looking to shift a bit of lockdown weight or generally just improve your overall health and wellbeing, Fit Millers provides a comfortable and positive social environment to do just that.
“We are all here with the common goal of improving our mental and physical wellbeing and the togetherness that has come about as a result of these groups in the past has really helped individuals within them to push on and achieve their targets.
“The groups have already proven to be incredibly popular again this year and whilst we do have places left, they are limited, so if you want to join us in May, make sure you get your names down at the earliest possible opportunity.
“I look forward to meeting participants new and old this summer as we look towards returning to a more ‘normal’ way of life.”
