Please note the programme is free.

Throughout the 13 weeks our qualified coaches will educate and encourage participants to make positive changes to their lifestyles, diet and physical activity with the overall goal being weight loss. Sessions will consist of an hour’s theory followed by a physical activity session which is gradually developed. However, this does not need to be football related and will be tailored to the needs of the group.

Participant Susan Q Clelland said:

Before FFIT I wouldn’t walk a couple of hundred yards, by the end of the course I was walking about 8 miles a day 5 or 6 days a week…..I  even walked/climbed Mt  Snowdon.  I can’t stress how much I appreciated the help and support to get off the couch and get started, best decision I made this year.

Georgie Smith added:

Football Fans in Training gave me the kick start to making better choices, which I have continued after the programme finished.  I am more active than I’ve ever been. I think everyone who wants to make the change should sign up and also have a laugh or two along the way.
