COMMUNITY Football Fans in Training Returns

The Ross County Football Club Community team are delighted to once again be running FFIT (Football Fans in Training). These courses - new for 2018 - are FREE of charge (thanks to the support of The SPFL Trust), however, places are limited. This year we are offering not only a men's course but also a tailored women-only course. Both courses will run for 12 weeks in the New Year.

The FFIT programme is a healthy living and weight loss programme aimed at men & women aged 35-65, who have a BMI of 28+ and a waist (belly) of 40 inches that was carefully designed and developed by the University of Glasgow. It was developed specifically to appeal to both men and women and includes the latest scientific approaches to weight loss, physical activity and diet.

Participants attend weekly sessions at their local club. Each meeting involves some time in the classroom and also a fun training session with the coaches!

Participants will receive their very own training top and will work closely with RCFC Community Coaches. During this time they will take part in physical exercise and will also learn about weight management, diet, healthy eating and alcohol awareness amongst other things.

Over the 12 weeks the course will cover key areas including portion sizes, alcohol, motivation and step counting.

RCFC Community Manager, Gordon Duff said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to deliver Football Fans in Training once again. This initiative has had a real positive impact on previous participants who have made a real difference to their lifestyles and their waistlines through this exciting initiative which is growing in popularity year on year."  

This course will run for 12 weeks from Monday 8th January at The HFA Dingwall with a limited number of places available.

Men's FITT: Monday 8th Jan – 26th March 2018 from 6pm – 7 pm

Women's FITT: Wednesday 10th Jan – 28th March 2018 6pm – 7pm
