IN partnership with Burton and South Derbyshire College, Burton Albion Community Trust are pleased to announce the launch of a new FiiT Fans project.

The new FiiT Fans project goes live this April and is a health initiative aimed at those who are looking to lose weight, increase their physical activity levels and develop the knowledge to make healthy lifestyle choices.

FiiT fans will run for 12 weeks and cover a series of topics which will include themes such as,nutrition, hydration, Sleep, mental wellbeing and using apps and trackers to improve health and wellbeing. The sessions will last 60 minutes per week and part of each session will be focused on the topic, while the other portion of the session will include some element of physical activity. 

Participants don’t need to have any existing knowledge of health or nutrition or be physically active, they just need to be motivated and willing to take part. The project will be free of charge thanks to Burton Albion Community Trust’s Further Education and funding partner, Burton and South Derbyshire College. 

Burton Albion Community Trust will be hosting a free information evening about FiiT Fans prior to the first session so that anyone interested can come and meet the staff, see the venue and ask any questions. The information evening will be Monday 30th April,6pm at Burton Albion Football Club. There is no need to book and there will be free parking and refreshments available on the evening. 

Health and Inclusion Manager, John Widdowson said, “The newspapers and social media are filled with headlines about obesity. FiiT Fans is a really exciting project which will help people making lasting changes.”  “Burton and South Derbyshire College have been extremely supportive of the project and we’re pleased to be working alongside them to tackle an ever growing issue.
