The FitFans programme has been commissioned by Public Health at Sheffield Council to provide free weight loss support for all adults in living in Sheffield, delivering safe and effective weight loss through specialist lifestyle and exercise programmes.
One of the FitFans target groups is men over the age of 40, and this is because middle aged men are failing to access support in managing their weight, and are consequently losing the battle of the bulge. FitFans is designed with men in mind (but is still available for women) and the programmes are sports related and led by people working with professional footballers in your town.
If you join the FitFans programme you can be sure that you will be getting the same expertise that your sporting idols receive – at FitFans we treat everyone like a sports star, and we even hope to have you back in a sports jersey by the end of the programme and enjoying the game more than ever.
‘Fit Fans’ is a community based intervention providing overweight and obese individuals with accurate and appropriate information on nutritional and physical activity topics.
The programme is primarily (although not exclusively) targeted at men (40+) with a BMI over 25. The programme is anchored in many city’s up and down the country and it centered around supporting and improving the health of their valued supporters. In delivery, ‘Fit Fans’ staff will be a source of advice, inspiration, support and knowledge, as well as providing a service that fully reflects the importance of community health.
During a structured 12-week programme ‘Fit Fans’ will explain why diets don’t work and why quick fixes quickly fail, exploring the many issues relating to food and nutrition, examining the consequences of our behavior. ‘Fit fans’ teaches the fundamentals of long-term weight management through an improved relationship with physical activity and the accompanying benefits; optimum long-term health and wellness.
