We have a range of free Adult Weight Management programmes which run throughout the year, with something to suit everyone…
Our 12-week programmes combine healthy lifestyle education and support with weekly one-hour physical activity sessions encompassing circuit training and different sports. The programmes are suitable for varying ages and ability levels.
If you’re not able to participate in an exercise class, come down to Burnley Community Kitchen (Unit 83 in the Upper Market Square of Charter Walk Shopping Centre – above New Look) on Thursdays any time between 10am to 12pm for a free weekly weigh-in, a blood pressure check and lifestyle advice.
Below is just a selection of the feedback that we’ve received on our programmes so far:
Mick (51): “It’s [12-week course] hard work but enjoyable. A good range of fitness exercises… I have benefited from the course mentally and physically.”
Laura (26): “I’m not a major gym fan so doing this programme each week showed me exercises I could do at home easily. The programme was motivating and different each week and has given me the motivation, confidence and support I need. Everyone who signs up is in the same boat regardless of age, size etc. We’re all there to support each other!”
Linda enrolled on the mixed-gender programme with her husband and daughter… “We are really enjoying our sessions at BFCitC’s mixed group weight management. I had looked at doing them before but we really wanted to do something as a family and the single sex group would have excluded John.
“Going together has meant we can support each other, not only at the session itself but also through the week at home and we are already feeling the benefits. Everyone in the group is really friendly and we look forward to going each Monday evening.”
