What can you expect?
· 12 FREE weekly sessions at Adams Park
· Meet other like-minded people on the same journey as you
· Learn how to make better choices to improve your lifestyle and health
· Be supported through your journey by WWSET staff
FIT Chairboys runs twice a week on Wednesday (6.30 pm – 8:00 pm) and Friday (11:00 am – 1:00 pm) with an initial ‘Week Zero’ where you will meet staff and other participants, as well as have your baseline measurements taken (height, weight, waist, and blood pressure). The weekly sessions are split between educational workshops and physical activity, with all sessions delivered by WWSET’s qualified coaches.
‘I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, I liked the classroom part, in which I gained a lot of helpful knowledge which aided me with my weight loss and improved my eating habits. We had a great group of guys which made the interaction in the lessons much easier. The physical side was very good and catered for all of us guys who were at different levels of fitness and some including myself carrying old injuries. Every week there was something different and I have taken parts from most of the sessions to create my own plan which I have been carrying out at home”, said Graham, Fit ChairBoys participant in 2021.
We have delivered 13 teams of FIT FANS (previously FFIT) and have 144 graduates who have:
· Lost a whopping combined total of 623kg and 867cm from waistlines
· Reported an improvement in mental health (74%)
· Reported a reduction in the amount of fatty food consumed (74%)
· Reported an increase in physical activity levels (69%)
As well as our male sessions starting on 13th & 15th Oct, we will also be running a female-only session starting on 19th Jan 2022 at Adams Park.
A big thank you goes to Sports Council Trust Company and Heart of Bucks who have funded our courses – without their funding, these sessions would not have been able to go ahead.
