Add to favourites

The Rugby Fans in Training (RuFIT) programme aims to promote healthy lifestyle behaviours in male rugby fans, and will be delivered through Super 15 Franchises throughout New Zealand. Men will receive advice about nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle behaviours (e.g. smoking), in addition to being trained by the club trainers!  Before we start the programme, we are wanting to run focus groups with Maori and Pacific men to get their opinions and ideas about the programme. Focus groups will run for about 60-75 minutes and refreshments will be provided. All men will also receive a $20 voucher to cover their travel costs (focus groups will be held at a convenient location in the community). All men participating in the focus groups will also be invited to take part in the RuFIT programme in February 2016.
