The EFL and EFL Trust have launched an online FIT FANS campaign to provide 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 safely during the current lockdown period.
According to new research released by Sport England, over 65% of people believe that exercise is helping them with their mental health, making an active lifestyle more important than ever.
Over the next 12 weeks there will be sessions developed by two fitness coaches, Scott Copeland and Steph Thompson from the Club Community Organisation (CCO) network and the videos will be released twice a week for fans to follow and get involved.
The sessions will introduce the concepts of safe warm up and cool down, increasing daily step counts and activity levels gradually, before moving onto sessions including aerobic strength and training.
The sessions will be released each week on Wednesday at 5.00pm and Saturday at 11.00 am 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.
