FIT HATTERS - EFL NATIONAL ONLINE PROGRAMME FOR NEW STARTERS Fit Fans is supported by our partners at the EFL Trust and Sport England Our Partners the EFL and EFL Trust have launched an online FIT FANS campaign to provide a safe way for fans to get active in the safety of their homes during the current social distancing restrictions. In support of Sport England’s ‘Stay in Work Out’ campaign, the programme will ensure Hatters fans have a safe way to start and maintain exercise safely, during this current 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 for EFL fans and the nation. Over the next 12 weeks starting in April we will feature sessions developed by two fitness coaches and these 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 exercises will vary and be fun to really give fans the chance to keep moving and see improvements in their fitness. The sessions will be released each week on Wednesday at 5pm and Saturday at 11am 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. Each week we will post the links for each video and build up the 12 week programme for you to follow when it is most convenient for you. In the meantime if you want to register for our next cohort of FIT HATTERS which will be held weekly at the stadium please contact James Hatch on [email protected] for further details on the programme.
