Rangers Supporters Lose Over 185 Kilograms With Football Fans In Training

Thu 9th March 2023

Rangers supporters have praised the latest Football Fans In Training programme which saw them lose 185.9 kilograms in weight.

More than 37 participants from three groups completed the 12-week course at Ibrox stadium and lost 28.81 stone in total and 95.63 inches in waist loss.

FFIT, run in partnership with the SPFL Trust, is Europe’s leading healthy lifestyle programme and can help kick-start your health, wellbeing and fitness.

William Brown lost 2.69 stone and 3.14 inches. The 62-year-old from Glasgow credits the Rangers Charity Foundation and its FFIT programme for changing his mindset when it came to fitness and healthy eating.

He said: “The impact on my life has been life changing!

“I became involved in the programme as I had reached almost 26 stone and had to change my life as I could hardly leave the house for any meaningful day to day chores.

“FFIT was win or bust for me and thankfully it has worked to change my life. My mental health and outlook on life is fantastic.

“The next stage is to get down to 15 stone and keep it off. I couldn’t even have thought about that if it wasn’t for FFIT so I am very thankful.

“I would recommend it to anyone. The care and encouragement coach John Joyce gave me was phenomenal!”

Long-term research has proved FFIT participants not only lose weight on the course but mostly keep it off and maintain a healthier lifestyle long after the course has finished. This is, in part, because of the opportunity to continue attending FFIT For Life sessions at the stadium to maintain momentum.

FFIT is open to both men and women via separate programmes. Participants should be aged 35-65 and cannot have taken part in a previous course. To qualify, you must have one of the following:

  • BMI 27 and over
  • Belly size 100 cm and over
  • Trouser size 37 inches and over

Our new Prostate Men’s FFIT is for men of any age and BMI who have or have had prostate cancer and will focus more on rebuilding muscle than weight loss.
