New free weight loss and fitness programme!

Healthy Us at Wiltshire council and AFC Bournemouth are offering a free 12-week weight loss and fitness programme!

It is open to anyone living in the Salisbury area, aged 18 or over, with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above.

The course begins Wednesday 12th January, running every Wednesday until the 30th of March. Sessions are held at Sarum Academy, Westwood Road, Salisbury, SP2 9HS from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Can’t make it? There will be another 12-week course running from the 6th of April!

What does the course involve?

The sessions involve exercises suitable for all, run by AFC Bournemouth and a half hour interactive session with a health improvement coach, covering topics on nutrition, portion sizes, eating out, behaviour change and how to maintain healthy habits for life.

Participants will be supported to improve their diets, to exercise safely and improve their overall health and wellbeing. It is an exciting opportunity for those who want to kickstart or continue their weight loss journey with a team focused on keeping exercise fun and providing the tools for healthy eating!

To get the most out of the course it is expected that participants attend at least 9 sessions and a weight measurement will be taken each week (all information will be kept confidential and not shared).
