Free support to lose weight and keep it off.
Nationally, 25% of adults are obese (BMI ≥30kg/m2), a statistic mirrored in Wiltshire. With an estimated 25.2% of the local adult population being obese, it affects about 99,000 people in Wiltshire.
Obesity can significantly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, some cancers and mental health conditions like anxiety, low self-esteem and depression. ShapeUp4Life aims to help Wiltshire residents lose weight long term and therefore reduce the risk of developing these conditions.
Shape Up 4 Life (SU4L) a FREE 12-week management programme that supports people to lose weight and keep it off long term.
Run in groups of 12 to 15 people both daytime and evening in community settings; sessions are interactive, practical and discussion based.
There are 2 face-to-face programmes set to start in April, all around the county.
- ShapeUp4Life is 45 minutes of discussion about lifestyle, diet and activity and then 45 minutes of light exercise.
- ShapeUp4Life Open is a 60-minute lifestyle and diet session without the light exercise. However, there is exercise guidance given in a booklet and online.
Anyone aged 14+, has a BMI of ≥ 30 or ≥ 28 if they have other medical conditions, and is resident in Wiltshire or registered with a GP surgery in Wiltshire.
