Making Moves: Tier 2 adult weight management programme

Making Moves is designed to help adults living in Blackpool lose weight through a Public Health funded programme that provides behaviour change, nutritional advice and exercise.

During the programme you will learn about eating a balanced diet, how to control portion sizes, understand food labels and much more. The programme also provides guidance to help look after your own wellbeing and mental health. As well as a balanced diet, being more active is another way to lose weight and maintain weight loss. Each week we will deliver a different exercise during the sessions. We will also provide information about additional physical activates taking place in Blackpool, many of these will be free or low cost.

Throughout the 12 week programme, you will be able to track your weight loss progress using the resources provided. One of the main aims of the programme is to see a reduction in your start weight. Our friendly and approachable instructions will be there to support you along the way.
