Football Fans in Training

West Lothian Youth Foundation are delighted to announce the return of The SPFL Trust‘s Football Fans in Training Programme (FFIT).

FFIT is a FREE 13 week course, including an initial measurement session, known as Week 0, that looks to make small changes to people’s lives.

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 a number of set criteria, that potential participants must fall into. The criteria set by The SPFL Trust is that female participants must:

  • be aged between 35 and 65 year’s 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 around the pitch at Livingston FC to a game of walking football.

The second intake for men will take place on Tue 10 January 2017.
The first intake for women will take place on Thu 12 January 2017.

 It will begin with an introductory session known as “Week 0” where measurements will be taken.

Last season we had two intakes of Male FFIT participants who committed to the programme and lost 170kg between them!

Members of the group still continue to attend a FFIT Continuation Group and have made some good friends and even take part in FFIT tournaments.

There are limited spaces in each intake so to avoid disappointment, register your interest NOW!
