Weigh to Go Ayr United

Weigh to Go Ayr United works alongside NHS Ayrshire & Arran to facilitate the Weigh to Go programme.

We continuously run 12-week programmes with the men getting a 1 to 1 pre-assessment before they start the course. Within the 12 weeks the men will take part in workshops looking at changing small habits, focus on the different food groups and the recommended intake, food labelling, hidden sugar and fat, the benefits of physical activity and its role in weight management and many more. The participants also exercise as part of the course this is usually walking around the football pitch or chair circuits. On 3 of the weeks the participants have the chance to cook some of the following adapted recipes; fish and chips, chicken curry, pizza, pasta and spaghetti bolognese. After the initial 12 weeks the participants try to maintain their lifestyle changes on their own and can filter in to our walking football or walking group to continue their activity levels. The participants will then return after 6 months and 12 months for follow up sessions.

The programmes run from the Ally McLeod Hospitality Suite at Somerset Park.
