Fit Chairboys/Fit Chairgirls

FIT Chairboys is a highly successful 12-week healthy lifestyle programme which is aimed at men and women aged 35 to 65 years olds, with a waist size above 38 inches (for men) or 31 inches (for women), and a BMI of over 28. 

Starting on Monday 23rd January 6.30pm – 8pm Wycombe Wanderers Foundation will be delivering their very successful Fit Chairboy’s programme at Adams Park. Project funded thanks to a Heart Research UK Healthy Heart grant, enabling the programme to be FREE for ALL participants through 2023.

The programme is aimed at people who are looking to lose weight, get fitter and lead a more active life, includes:

  • 12 weekly sessions at Adams Park with behind-the-scenes access to various areas within the stadium
  • The opportunity to meet other like-minded people on the same journey as you
  • Information that allows you to make better choices to improve your lifestyle and health
  • Full support & guidance from Wycombe Wanderers Foundations professionally qualified and trained staff

FIT Chairboys will run on mid week evenings from 6.30 pm – 8:00 pm and includes an initial ‘Week Zero’ where you will meet staff and other participants, as well as have your baseline measurements taken (height, weight, waist circumference and blood pressure). All sessions are split between educational workshops and physical activity, giving the opportunity to exercise the body as well as the brain.

Previous Fit Chairboys sessions have been delivered in all both male & female groups.

In total 18 Fit Chairboys / FIT Chairgirls cohorts have been delivered over previous years which have achieved the following:

  • 192 graduates completed the programme
  • A combined total of 781kg weight lost
  • A combined total of 903cm reduction in waistlines
  • 74% of graduates reported an improvement in mental health
  • 74% of graduates reported a reduction in the amount of fatty food they consume
  • 69% reported an increase in physical activity levels being undertaken

“I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, I liked the classroom part, in which I gained a lot of helpful knowledge which aided me with my weight loss and improved my eating habits. We had a great group of guys which made the interaction in the lessons much easier. The physical side was very good and catered for all of us guys who were at different levels of fitness and some including myself carrying old injuries. Every week there was something different and I have taken parts from most of the sessions to create my own plan which I have been carrying out at home”
