Fit Fans, which is delivered in partnership with EFL Trust, is a 12-week FREE programme designed to improve health and increase physical activity for males and females. The sessions are delivered at Bloomfield Road.
The 12 week programme begins with a ‘week zero’ session which includes an initial health check and a discussion about what to expect from the course.
The 12 weeks that follow are split between classroom health and education workshops and physical activity sessions. The session starts at 6pm until 7pm and the group will be meeting at the Education and Community Centre, 15 minutes before the session.
Female participants, aged 35 -65, are eligible to take part in this programme if they have a BMI of 28+.
