#GetOutThere initiative is launched
Health Improvement Commission launches #GetOutThere initiative to keep Guernsey moving.
Football Fans In Training, or FFIT, is a 12-week healthy living and weight loss programme for men delivered in partnership with Guernsey FC.
FFIT sessions are delivered by the inspirational GFC first team coaches, at GFC training venues and give fans the chance to join forces, see behind the scenes at the Club and meet the players, whilst learning practical ways to get active, eat well and lose weight for good.
The programme was developed by the University of Glasgow is backed by robust research. We established and funded FFIT (thanks to a Guernsey Community Foundation Grant) in Guernsey in September 2019. 16 men completed the first delivery of the programme, collectively losing 56kg and 112 cm from their waists! What an achievement!
We are supporting GFC to run another round of FFIT, however due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation this is currently postponed until later in the year.
