Slimming World campaign arrives in Crosspool

A new fitness campaign has been launched to accompany a new season of Slimming World classes in Crosspool.

Details are below. The local group meets at St. Columba’s church on Wednesday nights. For more information call Emma on 0114 233 5205 or 07941 062363.

Slimming World Crosspool

A campaign launches this week to get the people of Sheffield working together to tackle obesity in the Sheffield after a national survey revealed that people who are overweight often suffer humiliation and embarrassment and have low confidence and low self-esteem, all of which seriously affect their everyday lives.

Experts acknowledge that waist measurement, as well as weight, is an indicator of an individual’s health. With an ‘at risk’ waist measurement of more than 88cm (35in) for women and 102cm (40in) for men, results of the survey show that 45% per cent of people in South Yorkshire and the surrounding area are in danger of developing severe health problems.

The Let’s Beat Obesity Together in Sheffield campaign, run by Slimming World, aims to bring the whole community together to encourage and support each other to lose weight and make Sheffield, and principally Crosspool, a happier and healthier place to live.

Anyone who joins their local Slimming World group between 28 February and 12 March and purchases a 12-week Countdown to take part in the Let’s Beat Obesity Together challenge will get FREE membership and two weeks free attendance in a Pay for 10 get 2 weeks free offer – representing a total saving of £19.90.

As part of the campaign, being run especially to benefit the Crosspool community, members will also have the opportunity to be sponsored to lose their weight, and all the proceeds will go to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

  1. This Wednesday marks the start of ‘Let’s Beat it Together’ in Crosspool as well as the launch of our brand new 5pm session!
    We’re having an open evening at both the 5pm and 7pm sessions this week, so please come along and find out more about Slimming World and everything we have to offer.
    You’ll be able to have a free New members Talk – where you will hear all about our amazing Food optimising plan and how it really is possible to lose weight without feeling hungry. You’ll also be able to try some delicious ‘food optimising’ dishes, hear some inspiratonal stories and see exactly what happens in our warm and friendly group each week.
    There is absolutely no obligation to join, but if you like what you see and would like to join, even if it’s just to take part in our 12 week Slimathon to help raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, then there will be an opportunity to sign up at the end of each session.
    Can’t wait to see you all there!

  2. I go to Slimming World every week and I’ve lost 3 stone in 4 months !

    Emma (the consultant) is so supportive and understanding, the group members are a great gang, we share our highs and lows and have all bonded really quickly. Its a great atmosphere, ive been to other groups, this is the best by far. If you are thinking about coming along then please do, if you are a bit shy then Emma will meet you before the group begins.

    If you have been before don’t be put off by red and green, its all mixed up now so you can have proper ‘normal’ meals.

    Every wednesday at 5pm or 7pm.

    If you want to ask any questions then get in touch with me instead if you like. I’ve dropped 3 dress sizes and now have normal blood pressure ! Its AWESOME x
