Weigh To Go

Website header update

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

WHAT IS WEIGH TO GO?

Weigh to Go is a free 15-week programme of supported weight management run in partnership with NHS Lanarkshire. There are 2 parts to the class, a 45-minute weigh-in and education workshop followed by a 45-minute low impact exercise class. A different topic is covered each week in the education workshop which aims to increase your knowledge about how to live a healthy lifestyle.

Once you have completed 10 classes, you have the option to access the Active Health programme (if you have not been referred before). This gives you a further 8 weeks unlimited use of our gyms, pools and group fitness classes, and then a further 3 months of discounted membership at £10 per month, if you want it.

There are also a limited number of Weigh to Go Maintenance Classes available. You can opt to attend these once you finish your 15-week programme, should you feel you need some additional support with your weight loss. These classes last 1 hour and are charged at £2.10 per class, or are free if you hold a membership.

As the classes are funded by the NHS, you will 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 nation’s health and wellbeing. This form will be provided for you at your first class. Weight and blood pressure will be measured at regular points throughout the 15 weeks.

HOW DO I JOIN?

You can register your interest by emailing W2G@northlan.gov.uk Please note that registration takes place every 5 weeks and as there are limited spaces in each class, you may be placed on a waiting list until a space opens up at your chosen venue. Dates for subsequent blocks will be added in advance of the block starting.

Once you are booked on to the course, you will have 15 weeks to complete it. Please note you must attend 11 out of 15 Weigh to Go sessions in order to complete this programme. If you miss 4 or more sessions, you will be asked to re-register on a new block. This is because there is a limited number of spaces on this free programme, and we want to make sure that all spaces are being used.
