Be healthy and join Man v Fat

6th January 2020

The FA-endorsed Man v Fat Football scheme that has helped more than 15,000 men lose more than 230,000lbs is launching in Boston on Friday 24th January.

The initiative, which combines playing football in a league with diet and lifestyle advice, will kick off in Boston at Peter Paine Sports Centre, Rosebery Avenue and takes place every Friday from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

This is a great opportunity for local men who want to tackle their weight can join this weight-loss league, funded by the One You Lincolnshire programme and in partnership with Boston United F.C.

95 per cent of players who have joined the programme have lost weight during the 14-week league – so now is your chance to join in and shift some weight, especially after the festive period.

At the MAN v FAT sessions every Friday, there will be traditional weigh-ins before each game, followed by a 30 minute game of six-a-side football. Extra goal bonuses are up for grabs and this is all dependent on the pounds lost by the players, so it becomes a real team effort to lose weight together.

The Man v Fat head of football Richard Crick said: “We’ve seen that Man v Fat football can have an incredible impact on the health of our players with 95 per cent of players losing weight and 93 per cent reporting improvements from a range of conditions such as curing sleep apnoea to reversing diabetes. Our players have now lost more than 230,000lbs and we want to keep increasing that with leagues like the ones in Boston and surrounding areas.”
