After the success of the award-winning health and wellbeing programme - Fit Rovers, Club Doncaster Foundation are delighted to announce the introduction of a female version that will be open for women, over 30 across Doncaster.
Through a successful small grants application to Sport England, the Foundation is delighted to confirm the launch of Fit Rovers Ladies.
The Fit Rovers Ladies course is designed for women across Doncaster, supporting them to make positive lifestyle changes.
A pilot version of the course has been running over the past few weeks, with their feedback helping create the activities and workshop content.
Club Doncaster’s head of HR Kirsty Cavanagh, who has supported the course development, said: “This course is about so much more than a weight loss session or group, this is about bringing women together. If we look at those small changes that we can make to our daily routines, we can live a better life inside and outside of work.”
Participants can take part in activities such as beat-fit and netball, as well as taking part in educational sessions on diet and lifestyle designed to reduce the risk of developing health conditions linked to physical inactivity.
Health & Wellbeing officer Scott Copeland added: “On the men’s programme we’ve seen some fantastic examples of behaviour change and it’s our ambition to replicate this success."
The programme will follow a similar structure to the men’s course: social elements; informal and interactive health workshops; fun andinclusive exercise sessions. All sessions are free to attend for those wishing to take part.
All participants will receive a Fit Rovers Ladies t-shirt and course booklet which has been co-designed by the participants, to help them achieve their individual goals. Participants will also receive weekly individual diet feedback and support from Foundation staff as they continue their journey week-by-week.
