LIVEWIRE and Warrington Wolves’ rugby themed fitness and wellbeing course has been nominated for a national award.
The Fit to Tackle programme is shortlisted in the Royal Society of Public Health Health and Wellbeing awards in the Healthier Lifestyles category.
The 12-week programme has supported more than 250 men and 200 women to shed 376 stone between them since it was established just over two years ago.
It aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people who have a BMI of 25 or above, by challenging them to take part in physical activity and helping them to improve diet and mental wellbeing.
Participants engage in three exercise sessions a week covering all kinds of physical activity, including Touch Rugby, to improve their strength and help them shed the pounds.
The activities are tough and put the participants through their paces, with a weekly challenge to run four laps of the pitch at Warrington Wolves’ stadium and scale the 4,000 stadium steps.
The winner of the award will be announced at the RSPH Awards 2017 ceremony, which will take place in October.
