  • Furzedown Recreation Centre, Tooting SW17 9BP
  • Friday 6.30 to 8pm

 

Kick the Fat is a football league with a difference, it’s only for players who want to lose weight. On week two you will be placed into teams, after each weeks weigh in your weight loss will be calculated and converted into goals on the pitch.

Kick the Fat best suited for those who can sustain a jog and is perfect for all abilities, even if you haven’t played football for a long time. You don’t have to play every week as even non-playing team mates can still lose weight and contribute to the score.

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘I participated in the pilot scheme and found it immensely rewarding and helpful. The sense of kinship and mutual support is very motivating but it’s also a lot of fun, no pressure just a low stress way of getting back into physical activity amongst like-minded people. Highly recommended.’

Don, Kick the Fat participant.

What if I’m not fit enough?
Everyone who is in the programme is in the same situation and wants to lose weight, and as you exercise more and lose more you’ll get fitter too. Don’t forget the weight lost each week will be converted into goals for the game, so you can still support the team as a non-playing member.

Can I join as a team as well as on my own?
Yes. You can join as a whole team, a few mates, or just as an individual. We’ll form the teams at our registration event shortly before the programme starts.

What’s included in the fee?
The fee covers everything needed for the programme – pitch and hall hire, coach, personal trainer, nutritionists, equipment, even some medals and trophies at the end of the course! The costs for this programme are being subsidised by Wandsworth Council. If you’ve got any other questions please get in touch.
