Havant and Waterlooville FC are delighted to announce that MAN v FAT have chosen to set up their Havant League here with us, utilising our state of the art 3G stadium pitch and new classroom facilities.

For those unfamiliar with MAN v FAT and what they offer to the local community, here’s all you need to know:

The MAN v FAT Football programme has helped men in the UK shed almost 270,000lbs in excess weight over the last 5 years, through accountability, guidance and support. With over 80 league locations across the UK, there will most likely be a MAN v FAT league near you and plenty of like-minded men who are all keen to get into shape in 2021, too.

You don’t need to be Messi or Ronaldo, but just be keen to work as part of a team to achieve your weight loss goals. You’ll score bonus goals for losing weight, so even if your team gets beaten on the pitch, you can still turn around the overall score!

Meanwhile, their brand new format MAN v FAT Challenge employs the same principles, using weekly challenges to motivate and inspire members. Challenges are based around three core principles: nutrition, exercise and healthy habit building.

Members earn points for their team for not only losing weight each week but also tracking their food and exercise using their member dashboard, exercising between 90-150 minutes per week, cooking healthy calorie-controlled meals from scratch and hitting their 5 and 10 percent weight loss milestones along the way.

In both formats, once signed up, you will be placed into a team of 10-12 men that compete each week against another team in their league to see who can score the most points and climb the table to be crowned the MAN v FAT champions!

MAN v FAT members receive weekly support from their league coach, teammates and wider MAN v FAT community in achieving their goals.

You also get full access to The Other Room Virtual Gym so members can get their training done at home, along with access to our online Mental Health Wellbeing portal Silvercloud.

Havant MAN v FAT Pre-Season Kicks-off on Monday 21st June, 7pm at the Draper Tools Community Stadium.
