The SPFL Trust’s course runs for 13-weeks and offers an alternative to normal “weight loss” programmes. Hibernian Community Foundation staff will demonstrate a variety of ways to alter your lifestyle and diet, all in the home of Hibernian Football Club, Easter Road Stadium. An introduction to a variety of exercise activities in the local area and here at Hibernian FC will also be provided.  

The main aims of the FFIT programme are to:  

  • Feel better about yourself
  • Become more active
  • Lose weight
  • Develop a healthier lifestyle
  • Improve fitness levels
  • Meet like-minded people and become part of the HCF team. 

    If you are aged between 35-65 with a waist size of 38 inches or more, FFIT is the programme for you in 2020. 

    Every 90-minute session is split in half with education and exercise. Every week we discuss a new topic ranging from alcohol consumption, understanding food qualities & labels and balancing your diet. A 45 minute exercise session completes the session with this developing from a gentle walk to a circuit session or a taster session from a community exercise group. Each participant will receive a workbook which provides detail on how to sustain positive changes. 

    FFIT is open to those who enjoy football or those who just want make changes to their health. You do not need to be a supporter to participate in this course.
