Rangers fan Mhairi McClymont speaks to RangersTV after losing two stone in 12 weeks after attending the Football Fans in Training course.

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

“During the 12 week programme it never felt that I was dieting. I was eating all the time! It’s amazing how much fruit & veg one has to eat to replace 3 bacon rolls! Even so, it surprised me every week as my weight kept on dropping. As my trousers were, at the start of the programme, at least 5 inches smaller than I needed it took a bit of time before they themselves became too big!”

Mike, previous FFIT Participant

This is a great opportunity to shed a few pounds with the support of your local Football Club and help you live a healthier and more active life.  The programme is open to:

  • Aged between 35 – 65
  • Waist size of 38 inches OR belly size at least 40 inches

“I’ve always struggled to keep my weight down…On the FFIT programme, the weight began to fall off me purely by following the little hints and tips I was being given. No diet – just eating better and slowly becoming more active. By the time I had completed the course I had shed just short of two stone. I still feel I have a long way to go to get fit, but FFIT has given me the tools to do it!”

Colin, Previous FFIT Participant.
