Here’s a really fun way to get/keep fit in 2016 – football fitness sessions for people of little or no (current) footballing ability
Every football fan has heard of the FA’s ‘Fit & Proper’ test, which is supposed to prevent unsavoury people from being allowed to take over a football club. At Lewes FC, it’s the fans who own their own club, not big business.
However, the Rooks are introducing their own Fit & Proper ‘test’. But we’re talking about getting you feeling fit.
The Lewes FC Community Team has created a programme to focus on people’s physical well-being: The new ‘Fit & Proper’ scheme will use football to help fans and local people become fitter via fun football sessions on the club’s Rookery 3G pitch. And, later in the year, the programme will then extend into good-eating advice and cooking workshops for the culinarily-challenged.
Commenting for the club, Community Development Manager Adam Wolecki said: “Not everyone can move like Messi, but almost anyone can kick a ball. And we are not worried about who ate all the pies, so long as the pies include some healthy options too.”
Fit & Proper launches on Sunday January 10th when the club will start running weekly football fitness sessions aimed at people of ‘little or no football ability’.
The session for women will run 4-5pm every Sunday on The Rookery 3G all-weather pitch adjacent to the club immediately followed by a men’s session from 5-6pm. The usual price will be £5 per session (£3 for unwaged) but the first sessions on January 10th are FREE.
No booking is required, just turn up, play and feel better.
