Trust | Get Fit Free With fanActiv

The Hornets need you!

fanActiv is the ultimate clash of London football clubs as fans compete for bragging rights in a series of physical activity challenges, and through use of a digital platform encourage their rivals to keep up. 

Turning the inherent rivalry between football fans into healthy competition, the programme gets males aged 30+ moving more through weekly physical activities, fan challenges in the community and health messaging at participating clubs’ grounds.

The programme, starting next Thursday (Feb 23), is a FREE 12-week physical activity programme, with all sessions taking place at Watford FC Trust facility Cedars Community Centre in Harrow. 

Fans meet weekly for a 2 hour session consisting of a health talk followed by a sports based exercise session. fanActiv is running across 9 London clubs including Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Brentford and Fulham. 

The Trust have space for 20 men, who will all receive a Fitbit and attend sessions 7-9pm each week. Fans from each club will form a ‘team’ and teams will compete against teams from other clubs on Fitbit data such as calories and steps achieved.

fanActiv is proudly supported by: the NHS, Healthy London Partnership, the Prevention Board, Fibit UK/Ireland, Deloitte Digital, Salesforce, Public Health England, Men’s Health Forum, British Cycling, Badminton England and Parkrun.
