Recruitment for free healthy lifestyle programme opens

Are you a fan of rugby? Want to get fit? You may be eligible to take part in a free healthy lifestyle programme being run through the Blues and the Highlanders.

We are looking for male rugby fans who are interested in improving their health and fitness to take part in RUFIT-NZ, a 12-week healthy lifestyle programme delivered through professional rugby clubs. In order to participate, you will need to be 30-65 years old and be overweight.

You will receive an individually tailored ‘on field’ physical activity programme delivered by club trainers, as well as helpful lifestyle information. You will also get to be part of a team of similar men who are part of the study.

For more information, check out our registration page.

A similar programme has been run in the United Kingdom, tailored to football fans. Check out the video below to hear what the participants had to say.
