Wakefield Wildcats’ ‘Give Us A Try: Manage Your Weight’ project is a free, men only programme, which aims to increase activity levels and dietary awareness for men aged 65 and under.
The programme, which is in partnership with Wakefield Council and runs on a Tuesday night at Belle Vue Stadium, is aimed at men who currently do not exercise, looking to improve their knowledge of healthy living, goal-setting and monitoring their eating and exercising levels to aid them in their weight loss.
With an emphasis on participation, the scheme involves cardiovascular exercises, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), bodyweight exercises and weight training, as well as important nutritional information and advice to ensure you’re eating healthily too.
The club will also measure participants’ BMI to ensure they have a tangible goal to aim for and achieve, thus providing key motivation as well as allowing the intensity levels to be adjusted for each individual throughout the programme.
The programme will also provide participants with home exercises and assistance in making long-term changes, to ensure the healthy lifestyle and weight loss is sustained well beyond the programme.
Anyone wishing to find out more about the programme or how to get involved is asked to contact James Stephenson at email@example.com.
