Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Shape Up is being run digitally via ZOOM.

Obesity is national problem, and one that is growing fast. Currently 26% of Men in the UK obese and this is predicted to rise to 47% by 2030 and 60% by 2050!

In Hertfordshire the numbers are equally troubling with 67% of adult males currently overweight or obese. Aside from the huge (and growing) cost to the NHS, the personal consequences associated with this are significant. Several medical issues are associated with obesity.

This is why the Shape Up programme is being delivered to areas across Hertfordshire. Watford community sports partnership & education trust have designed a free programme that educates men to develop a healthy relationship with food and change unhealthy behaviours and habits that cause weight gain. The programme engages men in a fun and effective way and uses group exercise and sport to improve fitness and support weight loss.
