Call out to men: Move it to lose it! – London Borough of Richmond upon Thames

With the summer holidays now over, it’s time to focus on getting fit and losing weight this autumn with a new men’s weight-loss programme, delivered in partnership with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.

Earlier this year, Richmond Council and Brentford FC Community Sports Trust trialled a new programme to help men aged between 30 and 60 and have a BMI of 25+ to get fit and lose weight.

Over the 12-week programme, 20 local men took part. They attended one session a week at Hampton Sports and Fitness Centre, receiving indoor and outdoor group fitness sessions, healthy eating workshops, and top tips for lifestyle changes.

At the end of the course, the men had collectively lost an average of half a stone and with a free one month membership to the borough’s Feel Good Fitness programme, they all had the encouragement to continue on their new health and fitness journey.

Applications for the 2019 programme are now open. The programme costs just £5 a week. Due to its success the course this time will be running three separate sessions at Teddington Sports and Fitness Centre on Wednesdays from 7.30 to 9.30pm, Thursdays from 7 to 9pm and 8-9pm (EXERCISE ONLY).

The Wednesday session starts on 2 October and the Thursday sessions starts on 3 October/10 October

Steve from Twickenham was one of the first to sign up. He said:

“After completing this programme, I feel a lot better being lighter and more agile, and I actually enjoy exercise now!

“The best part of the programme was the other participants and the coaches; everyone helped everyone else and the coaches had good tips on a better diet and how to exercise.”
