What do I need to bring with me?
Please ensure you wear comfortable clothing and suitable footwear for exercising. You will also need a drink of water readily available; there are water fountains at all sites.
What facilities are available?
All sites have lockers available, operating on a padlock system. Full changing facilities and showers are also available at all sites. Free and easily accessible car parking is also available (Please note we operate a Parking eye system at Lings Forum, you will need to input your car registration details into the Ipad located at reception).
How hard will the exercise class be?
The physical activity element of the course is designed specifically for people who are overweight and / or new to exercise. All activity is easily adaptable to make it as easy, or as hard as you are comfortable with on any given day. Most importantly we pride ourselves on these sessions being fun!
What type of topics do you cover in the education session?
We cover a variety of topics in our group talks including portion size control, how to read a food label and what to look for, the importance of physical activity and what is available locally, plus helping you to set realistic goals and identify your internal and external triggers that may be leading you to adopt unhealthy behaviours. The talks are informal and encourage you as a group to problem solve and, most importantly, give you tips as to how to put the theory into practise at home. There is no complicated points based calorie counting system here!
What happens if I miss a session?
We will do our best to accommodate you at another session that week if possible. Alternatively we may be able to extend your finish date (maximum of 2 weeks) to ensure you get the maximum from the programme.
What can I expect to achieve?
The results speak for themselves! Not only have previous participants lost those important kgs, but we want to help you start making long term manageable behaviour changes including building that all important self-esteem! We firmly believe you will get as much out of this course as you put in.
What support is available after the course finishes?
Your instructor will be able to guide you through the options available to help support you on your weight loss journey after you have completed your 12 weeks.
