Twelve week weight management courses

Do you want to manage your weight and eat more healthily, but are not sure where to start?

Our 12 week weight management course (WISE) is designed for those that have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of between 25 and 40. 

You can calculate your BMI using the BMI Calculator on the NHS website.

During Covid-19, our programme is being delivered via Microsoft Teams and telephone, in either groups or via one-to-one support.

Sessions include:

  • Different healthy eating topics
  • Food diaries and self-reported weigh-ins
  • Tools to enable healthier choices 
  • Free Beginners Fitness sessions in addition to WISE (optional)

Dates for next courses: 

All April to June courses have now started.

Dates for the next WISE group sessions, via Microsoft Teams (video call), are listed below:

  • Wednesday 7 July to 22 September, 2pm - 3pm (12 weeks)
  • Wednesday 7 July to 22 September 6pm - 7pm (12 weeks)

We also offer 12 weeks of one-to-one telephone support for the week commencing 5 July 2021 to the week of Monday 20 July 2021 for those not comfortable in groups or using Microsoft Teams. 

Beginners Fitness sessions (low impact exercise classes to help with increased activity and weight loss - designed for those who are new to or who have never exercised before) are optional classes to participate in if you wish to to do them alongside WISE. Visit our Wellbeing Active Courses page to find more information about our upcoming dates.

Important Notice (Covid-19) 

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, our current beginners fitness classes have had to be cancelled. This will cause a delay to the start dates for the new set of classes that run alongside our January 2021 WISE sessions. When dates are available all particpants booked on wil be notified. 

We are, however, now running a brand-new Virtual Beginners Fitness course online. Please visit our Wellbeing Active Courses page for more information.
