Football Fans in Training

In January 2018 we begin the seventh cohort of our Football Fans in Training programme.

Public Health Swindon and Swindon Borough Council have been instrumental in supporting STFITC with the Football Fans in Training initiative, which has helped over 180 local Football Fans become healthier and lose weight, with a combined weight loss of over 200 stone.

Many of our participants are now taking part in regular weekly activities to maintain their healthier lifestyles. We have had participants take part in the London Marathon, the RunVEMBER challenge, walking groups and six a side friendly fixtures. Marc Teal said “When I started the FFIT program with Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust earlier this year, I would never have dreamed that I would run nearly 500km in a year. I have run a couple of 10k races and survived, so, next target is a half marathon – still aiming for those smart goals”. Marc is currently training for the Bath Half in 2018.

The next course is starting in September and for more information on this hugely successful Healthy Lifestyle initiative, contact Jon Holloway via email at jon@stfc-fitc.co.uk or call the Community Trust on 01793 421303.
