Trim Down Shape Up

Trim Down Shape Up logoTrim Down Shape Up is a free fitness and health service for men in Ashton, Leigh and Wigan. Our fitness coaches will support you to take charge of your health, get fitter and shift excess pounds!

How does it work?

You will receive 12 weeks of free activity sessions, each lasting 1 hour 30 minutes, with like-minded men who are looking to get fitter, stronger and leaner. The fitness sessions will include circuits, touch rugby, dodgeball, football and other team games.

Don’t worry if you haven’t exercised in years, or whether you are a regular gym goer looking for a bit of healthy eating advice, we will have a session suited for you with a coach who will tailor the activities for your ability.

As well as exercise, we will also give you handy and realistic advice on how to fuel your fitness plan. We will not tell you to stop drinking, or to cut out your favourite foods but will give you handy tips on how to shift excess pounds.
