Falcons Fit: Health and wellbeing programme

Thursday 15 December 2022 Written by: Adam

Falcons Fit is a new 12-week health and wellbeing programme running every Wednesday night from 1830-2000 at Kingston Park Stadium, starting on January 18.

Supported by Heart of Tyne, Falcons Fit is aimed at individuals aged 18 and over, designed to help educate participants on health interventions and lifestyle adjustments to help promote heart health.

The programme will consist of a combination of rugby-themed physical activity and healthy lifestyle workshops, with a focus on reducing the risk of heart disease.

Across the country every five minutes someone is admitted to hospital due to heart attacks. Indeed, 25% of deaths in the UK are related to heart and circulatory diseases. That is one in four of your work-mates, your friends or your family.

The programme is suitable for all levels of ability, and the activity is structured according to the individual, allowing participants to work at their own pace.

Falcons Fit is fully funded through the support of Heart of Tyne, British Heart Foundation and Kitwave.
