Join our Football Fans in Training

Are you a male and aged between 35 and 65 years old? Is your waist size at least 38 inches? Do you want to lose weight, have a healthier lifestyle and ultimately be fitter?

Our 13-week Football Fans In Training programme can help you do this for free. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at your club, be trained by selected club coaches, have a nosy at the trophy cabinet and have the chance to talk tactics in the dressing room. Who knows, maybe you’ll even bump into a player or two.

So what are you waiting for? Our new intake will start on Monday, January 29 in the Davie Cooper Stand boxes at 6pm and will take place every Monday for 13 weeks thereafter.

The main aims of the programme are to:

  • Increase knowledge of diet & nutrition
  • Improve lifestyle choices
  • Increase physical activity amongst participants
  • Reduce weight and waist measurements
  • Increase engagement in other physical activity

Over the course of the 13-week programme, participants will partake in a range of interactive classroom sessions to help make better lifestyle choices. They will also find out ways in which they can become more physically active, as well as setting targets and goals to increase their daily step counts.

“Football Fans in Training is an excellent example of how an innovative approach can engage a group of people who normally find it difficult to engage in mainstream health services,” David Caesar, the national clinical advisor to Scotland’s chief medical officer said of the programme.

“Thinking outside of the box, as this project does, allows for the delivery of effective health interventions that have a hugely positive impact on those who take part.

“Small but significant lifestyle changes set against the backdrop of professional football environments has proved a winning combination and a shining example”.

To register your interest please email graeme.mcarthur@motherwellfc.co.uk or call the Community Trust on 01698 239926. We just need to know your name, date of birth and waist measurement.
