Slim2Win returns for a second season

Bristol City Robins Foundation men’s weight loss initiative 'Slim2Win' returns following an extremely successful debut season.

Slim2Win is an initiative which supports men over the age of 18 with an unhealthy BMI (of over 27) to lose weight and improve their general health and wellbeing through football. 

Participants of the programme play against one another in a 7 aside league. However, there is a difference with the Slim2Win league, as players are able to score ‘goals’ off of the pitch by losing weight which are then converted into 'real' goals and counted in their competitive matches.

The debut season of Slim2Win saw 24 players from the programme lose at least five per cent of their starting weight, with six players losing an impressive ten per cent of their starting weight.

The new season will commence on Monday August 19th with sessions taking place every Monday evening from 6:15pm to 9pm at South Bristol Sports Centre.

The programme costs £15.99 per month and this provides participants with:

  • A weekly league fixture refereed by a fully qualified official.
  • Support from qualified coaches to assist participants on achieving their weight-loss targets.
  • Information and updates on participants weight-loss progress.
  • Weight-loss incentives such as free tickets to Bristol City fixtures.

Registration for the new season will close at 11pm August 13th. For any further information please contact mark.reynolds@bcfc.co.uk.
