Bulls stars skip a heartbeat for health
9:00am Saturday 29th March 2014 in News
Bradford Bulls stars joined national heart charity Heart Research UK on National Skipping Day yesterday to encourage more people to take up skipping as part of a healthy heart exercise regime.
It can burn up to 250 calories in 20 minutes and tones up the body while going easy on the joints.
The Yorkshire-based heart charity held a skipping demonstration with Skip2bfit, a national organisation that runs skipping workshops around the UK, to get the public to try out skipping as a simple, easy and inexpensive form of exercise.
Bulls player Adrian Purtel, who is an ambassador for Heart Research UK after suffering a heart attack in 2012, was there with his team-mate Adam Henry to help him get the healthy skipping message over.
