Project Weightloss

Project Weightloss

Overview

Project Weightloss (PWL) is a 12 Week exercise intervention programme targeted at overweight and inactive individuals. Sessions are run twice a week in your local Project Weightloss Centre, comprising of a wide range of exercise activities. A substantial logbook is used alongside the practical sessions as a motivational tool, reference and record of activity and progress.  The primary aim of the programme is to provide an opportunity for inactive and sedentary people to experience exercise, appropiate to their ability and needs.

PROJECT WEIGHTLOSS GOAL: 'To achieve a measureable change to the participants fitness, health & well-being'

Project Weightloss ran as a pilot initially back in September 2011 in Leisureworld Bishopstown and was supported by Cork Sports Partnership. Over 200 participants have since took part in the programme and it was and still is a huge success.  Late in 2012 with the support of the Health Promotion Department HSE South and Leisureworld, a two day training course was devised to train up interested and qualified instructors to deliver Project Weightloss so it would be available in other communities in Cork. A number of new centres are continuing to roll out Project Weighloss to other communities in Cork.
