We are pleased to report that all the effort that the participants put in over the first FFIT course has certainly been worth it and fantastic results have been achieved.
Of the 9 guys who completed the programme a total weight loss of 44.5kg was achieved…that’s over 7 stone!
In addition, the guys managed to reduce their waist sizes by a massive combined total of 42.5cm, which is incredible considering the fact that the FFIT programme concentrates on education and awareness regarding fitness and nutrition, and promotes making only small changes to dietary intake and exercise levels in order to implement slow, manageable but most importantly long-lasting behaviour changes.
There are numerous reasons why the first FFIT delivered by WWSET has been so successful, but one of the main ones was due to the sense of camaraderie that the group quickly created between themselves.
From day one, all the guys built up great relationships and supported each other along the journey.
Here’s what a few of the participants had to say when asked about their thoughts regarding the FFIT programme…
“Though I easily walk on my own, I find it more difficult to motivate myself to do regular physical exercises. Working together and supporting each other as a group and even through the Facebook page made the whole experience more enjoyable and easier”.
“Seeing results has made the FFIT programme really enjoyable. In addition, the venue is great – and going on the pitch was great. I also liked being given the kit, enjoyed the company of the guys and enjoyed the exercise, we all struggle and puff but I don’t feel awkward or embarrassed”.
“I particularly enjoyed the camaraderie with the guys as we all had a common goal. I learned a lot about nutrition, calories and fitness, and thought that the course was really well-presented, especially as it was the first for WWFC and Sam & Andy”.
