The Community Trust staff and football BTEC students will be delivering exercise routines for boys and girls in the 14+ age group with daily challenges to be broadcast live at 10.00 am across our various Club and Trust platforms including Instagram, Facebook and Youtube.
In a project supported by the Office of the Bedfordshire Police Crime Commissioner, each week will include 5 challenges (exercises) to be completed within a 7 day period. Mondays will set the weekly programme and then 4 more short daily broadcasts will follow in the week in between two rest days for recovery.
Each daily exercise / challenge will focus on different parts of the body and the whole programme will emphasise the benefits of daily exercise – particularly in terms of improving mood (mental health) as well as overall fitness (physical health).

The Trust's Schools and Sports Manager,James Hatch commented: "Getting teenagers and twentysomethings back into a routine will be a big challenge for everyone so we aim to start now so that whenever restrictions begin to lift, boys and girls understand the importance of having a routine.
"Every parent knows this group of 'duvet dwellers' are a challenge - but football and all sports will return, schools and colleges will re-open and work will start up again and its important that routines begin again which is why we have devised the Get Up Get Fit Challenge."
The Trust's first live broadcast to launch the Get Up Get Fit Challenge will go live on YouTube at 10am on Monday 4th May...
