Football Fans in Training

24th September 2018

The next series of the Football Fans in Training programme will begin on Thursday, October 4th.

In partnership with the SPFL Trust, Hearts have delivered the popular Football Fans in Training (FFIT) programme for over eight years. FFIT aims to help supporters become more active, shed a few pounds improve their general health – and the best part is it’s completely free of charge.

The upcoming FFIT programme is aimed at men and women, aged 35-65 with a waist of 38 inches or more. The course is a must for those who want to get fit, lose weight and become healthier.

The course will run for 13 weeks from Thursday, October 4th at Tynecastle Park with a limited number of spaces available.

Men’s FFIT: 5:45pm – 7:15pm
Women’s FFIT: 7:30pm – 9:15pm

Every 90-minute session will focus on a different topic which includes managing alcohol consumption, understanding food labels and balancing your diet. There is also a physical component to each session; this can be a gentle walk, a circuit session with our trained coaching staff or a game of football.

Hearts’ Head of Community, Alan White said "Previous course participants have made a real difference to their lifestyles and their waistlines by signing up to the programme which is growing in popularity. Not only that they have continued to be active by organising their own activities once the courses have come to an end."     

"What better motivation is there to lose weight and get fitter than spending 13 weeks at Tynecastle - it's also a great opportunity for our staff to meet real football supporters and get them further involved with the club outside match-days."

These sessions are designed to be enjoyable as well as being very informative and are open to those who enjoy football or those who just want to make changes to their health.

Remember these sessions are free thanks to SPFL funding.
