FFIT (Football Fans In Training) is Europe’s leading healthy lifestyle programme, powered by football clubs in a number of different countries across the continent. The programme was born in Scotland where it continues to have a hugely positive effect as thousands of participants from the last decade can attest. Open to both men and women, FFIT provides football fans with an opportunity to become healthier, lose weight, and become happier at the same time.
Men and women aged 35-65 with a waist of 38 inches or a belly size of 40 inches are invited to participate.
The 12-week programme (plus a ‘week zero’ session) aims to help participants:
• Increase knowledge of diet & nutrition
• Improve lifestyle choices
• Increase physical activity amongst participants
• Reduce weight and waist measurements
• Increase engagement in other physical activity
The programme was created by the SPFL Trust in partnership with the University of Glasgow. It is funded in Scotland, by the Scottish Government.
Raith Rovers Community Foundation are holding their FFIT sessions at Stark’s Park, Kirkcaldy from MONDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER TO MONDAY 14TH DECEMBER.
