Our 12-week Fitter Fans programme can help you do this for free. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at Northampton Town FC, be trained by selected club coaches and have the chance to talk tactics in the dressing room. Who knows, maybe you’ll even bump into a player or two. So what are you waiting for?
This brand new programme, fully funded by Sport England aims to provide participants with the knowledge, support and activity to help make small lifestyle changes which can have a positive effect on their health.
Each week the two hour long session will be split into two parts enabling participants to receive information and advice on how to make small changes and stick to them covering topics such as diet, understanding food labelling, building physical activity in daily life and goal setting.
The second hour sees the participants take part in a variety of sports and activities, including the likes of football, handball, dodgeball and circuit training in a bid to boost the levels of fitness and physical activity. All of which will be held at the PTS Academy Stadium!
Akshay Mistry, who leads the programme for Northampton Town said: "Having seen the progress made by the guys attending our football specific Man v Fat course, we are delighted to be able to offer further opportunities to help men improve their health. The combination of advice on lifestyle, diet and physical activity, as well as the actual physical activity which we can provide makes this fantastic programme unique. Add to that the fact that we are hosting it inside the PTS Academy Stadium!
"If you are thinking about losing weight and improving your health, you’re not alone and this is the perfect first step to join a group with like-minded men to make that happen. We are very excited about the launch and can’t wait to get started."
The first course will run on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm – 9.30pm starting on 28th March 2019. Spaces are limited and will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
