Our FREE ‘Award Winning’ Fit Reds Programme returns home to Oakwell for another spell due to popular demand on the 08/06/2017.
The 9 – week healthy lifestyle programme is delivered in partnership with Person Shaped Support (PSS) ensuring a high quality experience of fitness, football and informative sessions designed to help and support overweight and inactive males over the age of 35 years in our local community make positive lifestyle changes.
Using football and Barnsley Football Club as a hook, Fit Reds supports men to make positive lifestyle changes and become more physically active as well as increasing their knowledge and skills in relation to leading healthy lifestyles.
The programme consists of a series of two-45 minute workshops delivered over the course of the 9 – week programme. In the first half of each workshop, Community Health Trainers (Be Well Barnsley) provide participants with information regarding diet, nutrition, physical activity, weight management, Nutritional advice, health issues and safe alcohol use.
Be Well advisors also provide participants with one to one support in relation to food diaries that they are encouraged to keep helping participants achieve individual goals and lifestyle changes. Participant’s health measurements are taken at the beginning, middle and end of the programme to monitor individual progress throughout and to act as a motivator.
In the second half of each weekly workshop, qualified coaches (Level 3 minimum) deliver physical activity. The coaches deliver a progressively challenging activity programme consisting of warm ups, circuit training, strength and conditioning work and a cool down. The coaches are able to personalise sessions and devise alternative activities where necessary to respond to individuals with diverse physical activity needs and abilities.
The session finishes with mixed ability small sided football games that are fun and a great way to get some more physical activity into your week! The style of the programme encourages team spirit and previous participants have expressed their appreciation of being with other men ‘like them’ who are overweight, unfit and who shared an interest in the football club.
