Get FFIT and Lose Weight with Peterhead FC

Wed 09 Jan 2019


Peterhead FC are looking to run two separate 12 week FFIT programmes in the near future. One for males and one for females. The requirements are that the participants be aged between 35 and 65 and have a waist size of over 36 inches (91cm)( although exceptions can be made ) Sessions are for 90 minutes once a week for 12 weeks.
The Football Fans in Training (FFIT) is a healthy living and weight loss programme that was carefully designed to appeal to men and women. It incorporates the latest scientific approaches to weight loss, physical activity and diet and taps the potential of professional football clubs to engage overweight men and women in a weight loss programme. It has been developed and successfully evaluated in a major research project led by the University of Glasgow
The FFIT programme has already been rolled out on 4 separate programmes to a total of 46 men and women at Peterhead FC during which the participants increased their knowledge of diet and nutrition and increased their levels of physical activity. The 4 groups comprising 46 people lost a staggering total of 38st 7lb (245kg) with one participant losing just under 3 stone in the 12 week period. Participants from previous programmes will come along and speak to the new participants about their experience. 
The programme will be run by former Peterhead FC player and SFA qualified coach/ FFIT trainer, Nat Porter.
