Get FFIT with PFC

Dec 29, 2022

Peterhead FC are looking to run two separate free 12 week FFIT  programmes beginning in mid January 2023 – one for men and one for women. Dependent on numbers, we hope to start the men’s session on Tuesday 10th Jan and women on Wed 11th Jan.
The requirements are that the participants be aged between 35 and 65 and have a waist size of over 36 inches (although exceptions can be made) and sessions are for 90 minutes once a week for 12 weeks. Previous participants of our FFIT programmes are most welcome and are also free of charge
The Football Fans in Training (FFIT) programme 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 10 separate programmes to a total of 105 men and women  at Peterhead FC during which time the participants increased their knowledge of diet and nutrition and increased their levels of physical activity. The 10 groups comprising 105 people lost a staggering total of 107 stone 11 pounds  ( 577.7kg) with one participant losing just over 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.
If you wish to join the programme or require further information please call Peterhead FC on 01779 478256  or e.mail:  nat.porter@peterheadfc.co.uk or office@peterheadfc.co.uk
