Gallagher Chiefs team up with Les Mills with outdoor fitness for charity

The Gallagher Chiefs and Les Mills are providing the opportunity for the community to train with the Gallagher Chiefs in a 30 minute Les Mills GRIT® Cardio session.

The afternoon will give fans the first opportunity to meet the 2020 Gallagher Chiefs squad, enjoy a free sausage sizzle and partake in a 30-minute workout for fans aged 15 years and over. The Les Mills GRIT® Cardio session will be held on Tuesday 10 December at 4.00pm at the Gallagher Chiefs main training field, 10 Bisley Road, Hamilton.

The training session will be the Chiefs Rugby Club’s first fundraising activity for newly announced community partner Variety – the Children’s Charity. Participants joining the Gallagher Chiefs for the 30-minute workout will need to register with a $5.00 donation that will go directly to Variety.

Les Mills GRIT® Cardio class is a HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workout that improves cardiovascular fitness and maximises calorie burn using a variety of body weight exercises. The class will be designed to cover all levels of fitness allowing the community to train alongside the Gallagher Chiefs and experience a Les Mills GRIT® Cardio class.

Les Mills Hamilton Club Manager Sheldon MacDonald said: “We’ve been in discussions with the Gallagher Chiefs for a little while now about holding a Group Fitness class together. We both have common interests in health and fitness and entertainment. But the most exciting thing for the Les Mills crew is that we can share an awesome group fitness experience with not only the Gallagher Chiefs, but also the Waikato community as well to raise funds for a really cool charity.”

Gallagher Chiefs Head of Strength and Conditioning Christos Argus said: “In our pre-season training window we need to keep the trainings engaging. We do this by changing up the environment, the trainer or instructor, or the type of training. This session allows us to do just that while also giving our fans the opportunity to train alongside our players and see first-hand the effort they need to deliver.”
