RFL launches Active at Home initiative to support communities

The Rugby Football League in England, together with the national social care charity, Community Integrated Care, and Leeds Rhinos Foundation are launching #ActiveAtHome on Monday, March 30.


The #ActiveAtHome project is designed to help everyone keep active and improve their health and fitness in a safe environment during the current climate. The new initiative is inclusive to all so anyone can join in no matter what current level of fitness you may have.


The accessible #ActiveAtHome toolkit incorporates accessible mobility exercises, stretches and 15 individual exercises and activities demonstrated by Leeds Rhinos Foundation’s Health team that can be done in the safety of your home. The online resource will be available from Monday, March 30 on www.rugby-league.com and includes a step-by-step user guide and a selection of videos to help those taking part.


Participants can adapt and create their own workout from the toolkit and each Monday there will be a weekly challenge or specific exercise to focus on with those taking part encouraged to share the work they are doing and provide feedback using #ActiveAtHome.
