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