Fit Reds Programme returns home

Our FREE ‘Award Winning’ Fit Reds Programme is set to make a return to Oakwell due to popular demand with an all new ROLLING PROGRAMME!

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 helps men become more physically active, increasing their knowledge and skills in relation to leading healthy lifestyles in the process and the new rolling programme ensures greater access to the programme.

The programme consists of a series of two-hour workshops delivered over the course of the programme. In the first half of each workshop, Community Health Trainers (PSS) 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.

Participants’ 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.

Sessions can be personalised to encompass 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 a great way to get some more physical activity into your week!
