Bedford Athletic RFC  invites women to unleash their Inner Warrior Image- England Rugby

The club is offering free rugby fitness sessions this January

Bedford Athletic RFC is offering women the chance to unleash their Inner Warrior at one of England Rugby’s Warrior Camps. These are free fitness sessions that have a sprinkle of rugby focused activity.  

For the first time, Warrior Camps will be taking place over four to five consecutive weekends. So participants can build some real momentum in their fitness regime whist truly getting to grips with the basics of rugby.

Each session will be slightly different, building on the previous week whilst increasing your confidence and skills under the guidance of experienced England Rugby community coaches.

Missing the first session is not a problem as the sessions are designed to enable women to join at any time throughout the series.

Sarah Hunter, England Red Rose Captain said:

“It can often be daunting to try a new sport or get the motivation needed to go along to the gym for the first time. That’s why Warrior Camps are the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself and as a result, you can have fun and get fit all at the same time.

“Warm up activities, learning passing, catching skills, and fitness drills are combined to create these unique and exciting sessions.

“Bringing a friend with you can also help with the nerves but don’t worry if not, you’ll still meet plenty of great ladies at the sessions. I’ve made friends for life.”

Is rugby for you?

Rugby offers an opportunity for people of all shapes, sizes and skill sets to play. The Warrior Camps also welcome back any players who previously hung up their boots for a few seasons. This could be the perfect opportunity to locate a club and ease back into the game.

18,000 women and girls have already found their love of rugby through a Warrior Camp, so why not challenge yourself this year and try something new?

Steve Grainger, Rugby Development Director at the RFU, said:

“We welcome anyone interested to head down to their local Warrior Camp this January to enjoy a rugby taster session in a fun and welcoming environment.”

DATE/TIME: Sessions to take place every Saturday from 11th January to 8th February from 10:00-11:00am

LOCATION: Bedford Athletic RFC, Putnoe Wood, Wentworth Drive, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK41 8QA

All you will need to take part are a pair of trainers, your usual workout gear and a ‘have a go’ attitude…
