Trent Bridge Community Trust – Weight Management Programme

This is a FREE 12-week weight management programme aimed to help participants lose weight and put the building blocks in place to make long-term changes to their health and wellbeing.

Each weekly session will consist of a 45-minute educational workshop (covering issues such as physical activity, diet or sleep) and a 45-minute physical session (including activities such as group fitness, gym-based exercise and organised sport).

The key aim of the programme is to help participants lose weight – we hope to see weight loss of at least 5% by the end of the 12-week cycle – and we also hope to provide individuals with the information they need to make informed choices about their diet and activity.

Location: Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre, Aspley, NG8 4PB – Thursdays, 5:30pm to 7:30pm
