Weight Management

We have recently started delivering Football Fans in Training (FFIT), a 13-week lifestyle programme which aims to help men aged between 35-65, who have a waist size of 38 inches or more, bring about behaviour changes in order to improve their health.

Developed by the Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFL), FFIT is a gradual approach towards boosting levels of physical activity and improving diet, with plans individually tailored towards each member. It includes 12 weekly stadium-based training sessions with SPFL coaches and pedometer-based homework to encourage participants to increase their daily step count.

Those involved are encouraged to use local facilities to introduce further physical activity in their daily lives, and to continue to meet up for exercise sessions once FFIT has ended.
