Football Fans in Training (FFIT): a randomised controlled trial of a gender-sensitive weight loss and healthy living programme delivered to men aged 35-65 by Scottish Premier League (SPL) football clubs

Professional football clubs, with their large fan base, have the potential to support men to live more healthily. FFIT gives men who take part 12 weekly group sessions at the SPL club they support. This study will evaluate whether FFIT achieves important levels of weight loss in men by conducting a randomised controlled trial. FFIT will be a success if significantly more men who take part have lost at least 5 per cent of their weight when measured a year later as opposed to men who did not take part.
