Free fitness programme encourages men to get Back Onside and be happier and healthier

Date published: 12 January 2020

A free fitness programme for men will be launching later this month, run by Rochdale Hornets Sporting Foundation.

Back Onside is delivered by health and fitness professionals at Rochdale Hornets Sporting Foundation, in partnership with the independent charity Rugby League Cares and involves 10 weekly ‘fixtures’ lasting for one hour.

The programme is aimed predominantly at men aged between 35 and 64 but is open to all ages and men with any level of fitness.

The emphasis is very much on fun, designed to help men enjoy exercise again by building a positive mindset around exercise and helping them achieve their fitness goals, whatever they may be.

All sessions take place at Kingsway Park High School every Monday 7-8pm starting on Monday 27 January 2020 until Monday 30 March 2020.

If you’re interested in taking part, or require more information, please contact Rochdale Hornets Sporting Foundation on 01706 648004 or 07507 057 692 or email:
