The club's charitable arm are running a free health and nutrition course at the Amex.
Brighton & Hove Albion fans are being encouraged to get the New Year off to a healthy start by signing up for a free exercise and nutrition programme.
Albion in the Community is looking for Seagulls supporters to take part in its next Shape Up at the Stadium course.
Shape Up at the Stadium is a free weekly health and nutrition course based at the American Express Community Stadium, and aimed at men who live in Brighton and Hove.
Participants on the 10-week course are given advice on healthy eating, portion sizes, reading food labels and creating a balanced diet, as well as weekly exercise classes in the stadium’s indoor warm-up area, just a few feet away from the home team dressing room.
In AITC’s most recent Shape Up at the Stadium course, participants lost a combined 22.1 kg – with the charity’s biggest ‘loser’ dropping more than 7kg.
One of that group, Paul Gray, was in no doubt about the benefits of Shape Up at the Stadium.
Praising the “friendly and knowledgeable” course instructors, Mr Gray said, “With their help and guidance I have lost almost a stone.
“I have now joined the local gym and am hoping to build on the start Shape Up has given me.”
Over the course of his 10-week programme, Mr Gray also saw a 10.5cm reduction in his waist circumference. He also revealed taking part in the programme made him feel not only far healthier physically, but also more content.
The next Shape Up at the Stadium course, which is run by AITC in tandem with the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, starts on Monday 16th January and will run each Monday evening for ten weeks.
