Argyle Community Trust

Project Title: Argyle FIT (Fans In Training)
Award: £9,320

Argyle Fans in Training is aimed at engaging males to play six a side football in a Healthy Heart League with a focus on weight loss for overweight and obese men. Teams will earn bonus goals for weight loss but this will be capped at 2lbs per week to encourage healthy and sustainable weight loss. Each participant will go through a health screening for BMI, body fat, blood pressure and resting heart rate. A culture for healthy behaviour change will be developed through camaraderie with new team mates, male targeted testimonies of weight loss journeys and the drive to become heart champions.
