Its Time to Make A Change
Shape Up is a free 12 week weight management course for men funded by Public Health Herts and delivered by Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust. The course is aimed at men aged 18 to 65 years-old with a BMI of 30 or over and men from the BAME community with a BMI of 28 or over.
Participants meet up weekly for a ninety minute session comprising of a forty five minute educational segment and a forty five minute physical activity session. These two segments are delivered with the aim of improving participants healthy lifestyle knowledge to ensure a sustainable weight loss rather than the typically short term benefit of a diet based programme. This course is open and accessible to all, delivering at a number of different venues across Hertfordshire including the home of Watford FC - Vicarage Road Stadium.
Backed by local GPs, participants can get involved with Shape Up by signing up through their local surgery or simply contacting Andrew (details to the right of this section). Shape Up also boast their own website where you can find out all about the course and how they can help you lose weight today.
“I can’t recommend this course highly enough, do it! Take 90 minutes out of your weekly routine, change your life; take small steps but you will reap the benefits. I have!” - Rob Lewis, 46.
