Football Fans in Training

The club has now run three Football Fans In Training (FFIT) programmes for the clubs supporters.

The Scottish Government backed programme runs for men and women, aged 35-65 who have a waist size in excess of 38 inches.

The course combines light physical exercise with advice on healthy eating and nutrition.

The programme is run throughout Scotland and since 2011 a staggering 17,114kg has been lost nationally by its participants.

The course was run in partnership with the SPFL Trust and locally it is delivered by trained instructors from the Empire Gym, Arbroath.

The success of FFIT has led to a number of men continuing their physical activity levels by then taking part in Walking Football and other sports. A large number of women have also completed the course and some have generated friendships and continued to meet up and take part in leisurely walks.
