Club campaign to get the community fitter steps up as we enter March
The advent of March means The Game Changer is nearly upon us - Harlequins Ladies v Gloucester Hartpury at The Stoop on Saturday 30th March.
While The Game Changer is specifically focused on promoting women’s rugby, the Club is using this opportunity to invite our supporters and the local community to ‘Change their Game’ in any way they can.
Staff at The Stoop have signed up to various challenges to get out and improve their fitness while The Foundation have signed up with a new health and well-being platform FitSwarm as part of their mission to encourage activity in and around the Club.
FitSwarm is a platform that enables two-way live streaming of fitness, health and well-being sessions, enabling qualified trainers to offer a personal, interactive service to individuals working out anywhere in the world.
Individuals can see and hear the trainer live, while the trainer can do likewise. All individuals need is a device (laptop / tablet/ phone), an internet connection, webcam and mic.
The trial is completely free and The Harlequins Foundation will be working with FitSwarm in the month of March as they play their part in Changing the Game. Supporters can click here for more information and email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Places are limited for this free trial so will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
The collaboration with FitSwarm is the latest example of the Club using its contacts and partnerships to promote fitness and wellbeing. DotLondon, the Club’s Official Online partner, has also been linking players with YogaHub, a boutique yoga studio based in East Sheen, to find out how yoga can prepare their bodies for the high-impact & fast-paced intensity of playing rugby. Watch our players in action here.
The Game Changer is included in the 2018/19 Harlequins Membership but must be claimed beforehand. For non-members, tickets cost £10 for Adults and £5 for Juniors and can be purchased here.
