The Get Fit with the Terriers scheme is a football-themed fitness programme which includes activity sessions, healthy eating and nutrition advice, motivational talks and team support.

The Town scheme, run by the club’s Football in the Community department, begins on Monday January 7 from 6-8pm and every Monday until March 25 at the Zone, St Andrews Road, Huddersfield.
Get Fit with the Giants is a similar but rugby- based fitness programme. It runs on Tuesdays, 6-8pm, from January 8, also at The Zone.
