West Lothian Youth Foundation are running another intake for Men & Women for those who would like to make a change to their lifestyles.

The main aims of the programme are to:

  • Increase knowledge of diet & nutrition
  • Improve lifestyle choices
  • Increase physical activity amongst participants
  • Reduce weight and waist measurements
  • Increase engagement in other physical activity

There are several set criteria, that potential participants must fall into. The Criteria set by The SPFL Trust is that participants must:

  • be aged between 35 and 65 years old
  • waist size of 38 inches (96.5cm) or more
  • BMI of 28 or above

Every 90-minute session contains a different topic which includes managing your alcohol consumption, understanding food labels and balancing your diet. There is also a physical component to each session. This can be a gentle walk, a circuit session with our trained coaching staff or a game of football.

The course is open to those who enjoy football and those who just want make changes to their health. You do not need to be a supporter of Livingston FC to take part in the course.

Intakes begin with an introductory session known as “Week 0” where measurements and data collection will be taken.
