Blackburn boss Allardyce tackling new fitness regime

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has taken up cycling to maintain his fitness.

Allardyce has regular training sessions to ensure he is fit to manage and has taken to cycling to break the monotony of gym work.

He explained: "We all get lazier in the modern world and it's vital we raise awareness of the importance of exercise to prevent heart condition. I took to cycling as a change from the boredom of the gym.

"The physios at the club suggested it and the countryside around the training ground is fabulous so I find it beneficial psychologically as well as physically."
