ShapeUp4Life (SU4L) is a FREE 12 week weight management programme delivered online and in the community, that supports people to lose weight and keep it off long term.
Our community based sessions run in groups of 12 – 15 people daytime, evening and weekends. Courses are run in community settings and are interactive, practical and discussion based. Each 1.5 hour weekly session consists of a 45 minute nutrition workshop covering topics such as snacking, portion sizes, fats and sugar. Followed by 45 minutes of light exercise such as circuits, boxercise, resistance bands and seated exercise. The programme focuses on changing behaviours, increasing activity level and making educated choices in order to lose weight. Individuals have their weight taken each week and are encouraged to work towards a 5% weight loss goal at week 12; with follow up sessions at 6 and 12 months.
Our online offer is accessible anytime, anywhere! This NICE complaint, multi-disciplinary programme builds upon our extensive knowledge and successes from years of delivering face to face weight management programmes at the heart of the community.
