Fitter Fans

Get fit, lose the belly and get behind the scenes at Northampton Town FC!

The Fitter Fans programme targets men aged between 30 and 65 with a waist size of 38 inches or more and a BMI over 27.

The aim of the twelve week long course is for participants to lose between 5-10% of their body weight and lower their blood pressure. It gives football fans and community members a chance to get a behind the scenes look at their favourite football club and be trained by professional coaches.

Each week, the course, which is based at the stadium, covers a number of different health related topics including thinking about alcohol consumption, food labelling, keeping food diaries and making better food choices. The participants record their progress throughout the programme in their workbooks. The sessions also have guest speakers which have included Head Chef of the football club (among others). In addition to the classroom based activities the participants also take part in weekly exercise sessions which are held in the concourse of the stadium or out in the stands. These include walking football, circuit training, boxercise and jogging.

On the completion of the programme each of the successful participants is rewarded with a certificate. They are also provided with peer support and are guided into exercise and physical activity sessions in the local area so they can continue the good work that they have started.
