Weight Management

Would you like to feel fitter, healthier and more active? When it comes to losing weight, it’s often hard to know where to start. Active NL can show you the Weigh To Go.

 

Weigh to Go is a 15 week free programme of supported weight management run in partnership with NHS Lanarkshire. There are 2 parts to the class, a weigh in and education workshop where a different topic is covered each week followed by a low impact exercise class.

 

Once you have completed 10 classes you can also be put onto the Active Health programme if you have not been referred before which gives you a further 8 weeks unlimited use of our gyms, pools and group fitness classes and then 3 months further membership at £10 per month if you want it.

 

There are also a limited number of Weigh to Go Maintenance Classes available and you can opt to attend these once you finish your first 15 weeks should you feel you need some additional support with your weight loss. (These classes are charged at £2.10 per class)

 

As the classes are funded by the NHS , you do need to complete some core data which is returned to the NHS for evaluation. This is so the Scottish Government can assess how successful individual weight management programmes are across a number of authority areas and how they are contributing to improving the nations health and wellbeing.

 

You register direct at the venue you want to attend and reception will issue you with a key fob which is preloaded with 20 free classes. The intake dates for the classes are detailed on the table below. Although you can start at any week, data (weight/blood pressure) are taken at Week 1, Week 6 or Week 11 on the dates below. So basically whenever you start, you roll through until you have done all 15 weeks worth of classes. You present your keyfob each time you attend and it will knock a class off. You can attend any venue that suits and are also able to move between venues if this suits you as the programmes are all running to the same weeks.
