Kick In2 Shape
Kick In2 Shape combines educational, classroom-based activity – to discuss healthy lifestyles, diet and nutrition - with football sessions suitable to the needs of the group.
Participants are required to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 27 to access the programme, which is delivered in some of the most inactive areas in Bristol.
The Community Trust currently runs two courses - at South Bristol Sports Centre (Wednesday, 6:30pm-8:30pm) and at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre in Portishead (Friday, 2pm-4pm).
“We looked at how the two could be combined with an hour of education, followed by an hour of football, which would maximise the best ways of educating, as well as keeping men active,” said programme manager, Geoff Stevens.
“Many of the participants we are targeting have either been inactive for a period of time, or have little activity time in their life. They are also within the target group of a BMI 27+.
