Saracens - Still Moving Like a Pro!

Still Moving Like a Pro!


The month of Movember may be over, but our Move Like A Pro men are still moving.

 Back in April, Premiership Rugby and the Movember Foundation launched a new programme to encourage men to get fitter and look after their health. 'Move Like A Pro' offers rugby fans the opportunity to take part in a free 12-week physical activity programme online, or at their local Premiership Rugby club in sessions run by clubs' training staff.

Over 50 men have benefitted from being part of Saracens Sports Foundation’s delivery since the programme began. Participants from both the first and second cohort are continuing the great work that they started whilst on the programme by attending regular fitness sessions led by our Move Like A Pro coach.

In October, a group from the first Move Like A Pro cohort travelled to Coventry to take part in an eight-a-side touch tournament against all the other premiership rugby teams who are taking part in the programme. For some of the guys this would have seemed impossible before their Move Like A Pro journey but now they have the mental and physical strength required to enjoy taking part in sport again, an inspiring example of how the programme has made lasting changes to the participant’s lives.

 For more information about taking part in future Move Like A Pro sessions please contact Emily Neilan emilyneilan@saracens.net
