At Arbroath FC we are committed to supporting our wider community far beyond the 90 minutes on match day.
We believe football can be used as a force for good that has numerous social benefits – including reinforcing collective identities, improving self-esteem, inspiring young and old, promoting wellbeing and healthy living band contributing to social inclusion. Football is a powerful tool for engagement and we at Arbroath FC believe we have a duty to give something back to our community and deliver real social change.
The Football Fans in Training programme is one such project and our latest participants were awarded with their certificates yesterday at Gayfield by Arbroath Chairman Mike Caird in the 36-0 Lounge.
The men and women have all graduated from this brilliant scheme which helps you get fit and lose weight but also learning how to make positive changes to your lifestyle. Over 60 fans have now participated in two FFIT courses with Arbroath FC. Many have seen significant health improvements and everyone who has been on the course now has the tools to have a healthier lifestyle.
The latest FFIT graduates lost a combined total of 134.5kg (21 stone 3 lbs) and an average of 4.3kg (10 lbs) per person. They also reduced their waist size by 5.1cm (2”) with a combined total waist loss of 158cm (5 ft 1”).
