Now is the moment. Be Your Own Hero.

It’s never been more important to get fitter, healthier – and be happier, too! If you’re determined to change your health and fitness for the better in 2020, then we can help...

We’re looking for both men and women, aged 35 – 65, to sign up for one of our FREE 12 week programmes that can help kick-start your path to health and fitness.

Participants work with our football and health coaches one evening per week, training and learning about fitness and wellbeing.  Plus every participant is issued with a Rangers training top so they’re part of the team.

We’ll be with you every step of the way to keep you motivated and help you change your lifestyle – all you have to do is take that first step and sign up!
