If you do not meet the eligibility criteria, you can still sign up to the sessions by paying a nominated fee.

If you are accepted on the programme, you will be expected to complete an initial assessment. This will look at the what you do and do not like and help you select appropriate SMART goals. Your height, weight and waist circumference will also be measured.

Once you have achieved success in the first 16 weeks you can continue to access the programme to support you with your weight loss/ increased physical activity.
