New men's fitness and wellbeing programme

Project X

An innovative fitness and wellbeing programme exclusively for men in Torfaen is set to kick off this January.  

Project X aims to provide a challenging and rewarding fitness and wellbeing experience for men of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. The programme will combine elements of CrossFit, military style training, team building and mindset training, to help participants improve their physical and mental health, confidence, and resilience.

Project X is a collaboration between Torfaen Council's Sports Development and the Sugar Rogue gym and home of CrossFit Cwmbran, based in Springvale Industrial Estate.

The programme is free of charge and will run for 10 weeks, starting from Wednesday 24 January 2024.

Participants will attend two evening sessions per week at Sugar Rogue, where they will be guided by qualified and experienced coaches. Sessions will be tailored to suit the needs and goals of everyone.

Ben Jeffries, Sports Development Officer, said, “It’s well documented that men’s mental and physical well-being needs more support than ever. Project X is designed to help men overcome personal challenges and to achieve their full potential. The name ‘Project X’ was born out of us wanting to do something that was a bit different and hard hitting, that didn’t really give much away. You have to experience it to believe it.”

Councillor Fiona Cross, Torfaen Council’s Executive Member for Communities, said, “I am delighted to see the launch of Project X, a unique and exciting programme that will benefit the men of Torfaen. This programme is a great example of how the Council and its partners are working together to promote health and wellbeing in our communities.

"I encourage all men who are interested in improving their fitness and wellbeing to sign up and be part of the first ever cohort to transform their lives.”

Project X hopes to follow in the footsteps of the successful #ifyougoigo programme for women, which was established in 2017, and has saw more than 200 women supported to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Spaces are limited, so don’t miss this opportunity to join Project X and start your fitness and wellbeing journey.
