Jasmine Saxton, Sophie Scargill, Fiona Berry, and Hannah McWilliams surprised some of the Foundation’s Fit Rovers Ladies participants when they joined in with the weekly Zoom HIIT workout session on Wednesday evening.
The players showed their support for the project which has continued to provide the community feel and regular exercise and well-being sessions that Fit Rovers is famed for.
Midfielder Scargill said: “I’ve been trying to stay active during lockdown and have really enjoyed going out running, but I find it hard to motivate myself to do home workouts that get more variety into my exercise routine. Lauren’s class on a Wednesday is the answer to that motivation!
“Her diverse and engaging workouts allow anyone to join in and really push themselves or take it at their own pace.
“The group of ladies are all so welcoming too, I’m shattered and can’t wait for next week!”
Lauren Cuttell, health and well-being co-ordinator at the Foundation added: “Having the Belles players get involved with the workout was a lot of fun and our ladies loved it.
“We’re running these remote sessions to keep people active at home and they’ve gone down really well, I’m proud of the group for continuing to take part during these difficult times.
“It reaffirms the relationship that the Belles have with Fit Rovers Ladies, and we’re hopeful that it’s something that can continue to develop.”
The Belles have been delivering football sessions on the 12-week course as part of the Fit Fans Project – you can see this in action here. (This video was filmed before the introduction of lockdown and social distancing).
