Female Football Fans in Training – New recruits required

Female Only Football Fans in Training (FFIT) is a 13-week programme delivered here at Celtic Park in collaboration with the Scottish Professional Football League Trust and Celtic FC Foundation.

The aim of FFIT is to encourage female supporters, 35 to 65 years old, to make significant changes to their risk of ill health by losing weight, becoming more active and eating a healthier diet.

Participants are targeted to achieve 5% to 10% reduction in body weight whilst improving fitness levels. Our experienced community coaches have been expertly trained to deliver this specific programme and they encourage participants to stay active and healthy while also having a positive effect on the healthy living choices of participants’ wider family and friends.

Each session lasts for approximately two hours and comprises of a one-hour interactive workshop, hosted in one of our match day lounges, to discuss lifestyle, diet and nutrition. This is then followed by an hour of physical activity, such as circuits, along with developing fitness components such as endurance and strength which all take place in and around the stadium, such as the gym, concourse areas and trackside. This programme is fully tailored to individual clients’ needs and requirements.
