Turn Your Life Around in 2018!

Thu 4th January 2018

If you’re determined to change your health and fitness for the better in 2018 then we can help!  Our Football Fans in Training programme has changed lives for the better, and this is your chance to take the first step in turning your life around too!

We’re looking for both men and women, aged 35 – 65, to sign up for one of our FREE 12 week programmes that can help kick-start your path to health and fitness.

Participants work with our football and health coaches one evening per week, training and learning about fitness and wellbeing.  Plus every participant is issued with a Rangers training top so they’re part of the team.

We’ll be with you every step of the way to keep you motivated and help you change your lifestyle – all you have to do is take that first step and sign up!

If you meet the criteria below, contact us with your details to get started.  It’s a great opportunity to improve your fitness, lose weight, and train with fellow supporters at Ibrox!

Our latest women’s course was our most successful ever, with every participant losing either weight or inches – or both.  Claire Lamb, Karen Pender, Janet Purvis and Jaclyn Waite lost an incredible 27.8 kilos between them.

In the Monday group, John Coleman was able to stop medication for his diabetes thanks to the change in his lifestyle, whilst in the Friday group Allan Jack, Colin Dykes, Derek Russell and Iain Jamieson all lost double figures – a total of 47 kilos between them!

Of the 49 participants across the groups, a total of 269.6 kilos were lost (42 stone 6lbs) and 323.5cm disappeared from waist lines.  Participant Brian Hendry commented,

"I enjoyed the course 110% and the advice encouragement and professionalism of John and Willie was appreciated by myself and I know the other lads. So thanks for the opportunity for taking part in the course."
