Premiership Rugby is proud to support World Health Day as part of our Move Like A Pro campaign to get men fitter.
Move Like A Pro is a partnership between Premiership Rugby and the Movember Foundation to inspire a legacy of long-term lifestyle change across the rugby fan community.
Directly linked to the Movember Foundation’s vision of creating a world where men live happier, healthier and longer lives, Move Like A Pro starts with simply… moving.
By signing up to this unique opportunity at www.MOVELikeAPro.co.uk, fans can access a 12 week programme designed for them by Pro trainers and nutritionists that will guide them towards better health and wellbeing.
Designed for male rugby fans aged 35-55, Move Like A Pro will be delivered at Bath, Newcastle Falcons, Northampton Saints, Saracens and Wasps and combine both “on pitch” physical activity and practical tips and tricks to help improve your wellbeing.
Fans will complete the programme with like-minded people, contributing to the Move Like A Pro project’s overall success. Most importantly, it’s achievable, fun and made for men who currently take little, or no, physical activity in their daily lives.
Those fans that can’t attend sessions will be able to follow the programme online, which is kicking off soon at www.MOVELikeAPro.co.uk
The Move Like A Pro online programme includes workout and nutrition videos, news, tips and regular challenges from players and coaches from across Premiership Rugby – and it will be open to all.
Premiership Rugby’s community and corporate social responsibility director, Wayne Morris, insists the scheme will flourish thanks to the contributions of all 12 clubs to date.
“There’s a rising obesity problem across England and we believe that Move Like A Pro will be a really powerful first step to getting fans more active, through the power of Premiership Rugby clubs to draw men in and help them live healthier, happier lives.”
Sarah Coghlan, County Director UK at Movember Foundation, says this is just the beginning of a flourishing partnership with Premiership Rugby.
“Premiership Rugby and the Movember Foundation have a longstanding history; players and fans bring so much energy to the sport, and they have also embraced Movember with a similar passion. The rugby community has raised masses of funds and awareness for men’s health over the years, and we look forward to them enjoying and benefitting from this exciting new programme” she said.
“Together we want to get rugby fans moving and affect positive change on the health of rugby fans to inspire a legacy of long-term change across the rugby fan community.”
To ensure everyone can get involved, the Move Like A Pro website will be open to all Premiership Rugby fans to access meal and exercise plans on Monday 11 April. You will be able to follow the weekly exercise plans and find tasty recipes developed by Premiership Rugby clubs at www.MOVELikeAPro.co.uk
