Bristol Bears fitness programme for hospital staff


We’re so thrilled to have teamed up with Bristol Bears to offer staff a unique opportunity to get fit with the rugby team’s community coaches.

‘Move Like A Pro’ is a free 12-week exercise programme designed and delivered by Bristol Bears to help staff from North Bristol NHS Trust get active.

The once-weekly exercise session takes place at Horfield Leisure Centre on Tuesdays at 5.30pm.

“Join your North Bristol NHS Trust colleagues at Horfield Leisure Centre on a journey to feeling fitter, happier and healthier.

“Whilst the programme has been designed by Bristol Bears community coaches, you don’t have to be a rugby fan to join in.

“Our sessions will use a range of fun games and challenges to achieve our outcome of getting more people moving more of the time.”

Craig Capel, Community Development Manager at Bristol Bears Community Foundatoin

“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Bristol Bears to offer staff at North Bristol NHS Trust this truly unique chance to work with the rugby club’s community coaching staff.

“North Bristol NHS Trust has a range of initiatives supported by the Charity to promote health and wellbeing amongst staff.

“Why not use this fitness drive as a motivation to sign up to a fundraising challenge like the Bristol 10k or 5k Tough Mudder?”
