Shape Up comes to Harrow

The male only adult weight management programme which has seen over 450 men collectively lose over 3.5 tonnes of weight across Hertfordshire, is now to be delivered for free in Harrow.

Partnering with Public Health Harrow, Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust are delivering the free 12 week programme to local residents of Harrow or those registered to a Harrow GP.

Shape Up has been designed with the aim of improving participant’s healthy lifestyle knowledge as well as physical fitness to ensure a sustainable weight loss rather than the typically short term benefit of a diet based programme. The programme is comprised of two elements, a nutritional education session and a physical activity session.

Head of Health and Wellbeing at the Trust, Andrew Garlick said of the expansion of the Shape Up programme;

“It has been amazing to see Shape Up grow over the years and impact more and more people’s lives. Whilst we continue to deliver these courses to men across Hertfordshire, it is fantastic that we are now able to bring this highly successful programme to Harrow. We look forward to getting started.”
