Male Football Fans in Training (FFIT), which is being delivered in partnership with the Scottish Professional Football League Trust, is a 13-week programme designed to improve health and increase physical activity for males and is delivered at Bloomfield Road.
The third course started last week, with 23 people enrolling. Participants looked at the overview of the programme and what they will be doing over the next 12 weeks. They also looked at influences on food choices and whether they have control over what they eat. As part of the first session they got their steps in by having a tour of the stadium.
The next 12 weeks of the course will cover many topics like; The Eatwell Guide, calorie counting and local amenities, as well as many other activities. The participants will also do a physical activity session every week.
Blackpool FC Community Trust, Health Officer, Nathan Davies has encouraged anyone who is wanting to lose weight or generally improve their health and wellbeing to get in touch. Nathan said, “The main aims of FFIT is to increase knowledge of diet and nutrition and improve lifestyle choices. Other aims include increasing physical activity amongst participants and reduce weight and waist measurements.’
Males aged 35-65, are eligible to take part in this programme if they have a BMI of 28+ or a waist size of 38+ inches. This is a free course to attend.
Past participants have commented saying they wish they could do it again!
