Fit Cobblers is returning! The new block will commence in September at Sixfields.

Fit Cobblers will be starting up on the week commencing 9th September. From this week onwards we will have weekly sessions every Thursday at Sixfields Stadium in Northampton.

This next block is for men aged between 35-65 with a BMI over 27.5 and a waist of 38 inches or more. This is a FREE 12-week programme thanks to our partnership with the EFL Trust and funding from Northants Community Foundation and Public Health Northamptonshire.

Fit Cobblers is a free 12-week lifestyle behaviour change programme designed to help participants instil long term healthy habits. As well as wanting our participants to lose weight healthily, we promote the idea of making small sustainable changes for the longer-term goal.

Our most recent block ended on August 11th as we piloted two blocks to run side by side, with the addition of a new course running in Wellingborough for the first time. In total the Fit Cobblers Spring Cohort had 17 total participants successfully finishing the course losing a combined total of 113.75Kg!

Two participants managed to lose 10% of their bodyweight, six participants lost 5% and in total 12 participants managed to lose at least 3% of their own bodyweight.

However, Fit Cobblers is not just about losing weight but about making strides in your everyday life. At Fit Cobblers, the participants gained valuable insight to the conscious and subconscious decisions they make about food and exercise, how different mood triggers affect their wellbeing, activity and eating but more importantly how much is within their own control.

After finishing the programme we’ve had numerous participants join our Man vs Fat and Walking Football programmes and one participant, who had been inactive for over 15 years, managed to get up, become active, go for his longest walk in 20 years and find himself a job! As you can see, success can be defined in different ways other than by just losing weight and we are here to support you in your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

If you think Fit Cobblers is the programme for you then please sign up now for our next 12 week block starting on Thursday 9th September 7.30pm-9.30pm at Sixfields Stadium.

For more Fit Cobblers stories please see Nic’s Story and the life changes he made during the programme to move towards a healthier lifestyle.
