Fit Rovers course 11 starts with a bang

18 January 2019

Fit Rovers ambassador Matty Blair helped course 11 settle into the programme on Thursday as they began their Fit Rovers journeys.

The Rovers midfielder was on hand to welcome 22 men onto the new course, helping them record their week one measurements of weight, waist circumference, height and blood pressure.


As course ambassador, Matty will be joining the men more regularly on a Thursday night, as he aims to help these men gain their Fit Rovers goals at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Matty commented: “I’m delighted to be continuing as the Fit Rovers ambassador for this course; I've spent quite a bit of time with the participants so far getting to know them, and cannot wait to watch them reach their goals.

"I keep saying that the programme is fantastic, and these numbers really do show it. The sessions I’ve been a part of are really professional and it’s such a relaxed environment to meet new people.”

As part of his role, Matty also visited the Fit Rovers vets session to keep an eye on how the men are progressing having already graduated from the course.

A total of 64 men turned up at the Keepmoat Stadium for the vets circuit training, whilst the football session had a total of 60 participants. The vets sessions are ran by Club Doncaster Foundation staff and are exclusive for Fit Rovers graduates.


Fit Rovers is Club Doncaster Foundation’s pioneering adult fitness course based at the Keepmoat Stadium, aimed at men over the age of 30, free of charge.
