Men’s health programme returns for new year.

Do you want to improve your fitness and get in shape after over indulging this Christmas?

Wigan Athletic Community Trust’s Fit Fans programme is back for 2016 with a new format which gives football fans the perfect way to lose weight and feel great all year!

Instead of the previous 12-week courses, Fit Fans has returned for the new year as an ongoing fitness and health programme, providing men aged 25+ with opportunities to play football and sports, meet new people and receive simple tips on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Since the programme began in 2012, over 400 men have taken part in the scheme, with 70% of them lowering their BMI after completing the programme.

Fit Fans sessions return from Tuesday 19th January 2016 at Montrose Skills Hub, Montrose Avenue, WN5 9XN, and will take place every Tuesday from 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

To find out more about the Fit Fans programme, please contact Chris Baxter, project co-ordinator, on 01942 488 530 or email
