Overweight adults and teenagers are being offered a free 12-week weight loss course at Hampden Park Sports Centre and Shinewater Sports Centre in Eastbourne.
The re:balance course is co-ordinated by not-for-profit leisure operator, Freedom Leisure, in partnership with Wave Leisure and exercise referral companies Zest People and Refer All.
There is a choice of courses for adults at Hampden Park Sport Centre from 7-9pm on Wednesday, and Shinewater Sports and Community Centre on Tuesdays and for young people aged 12-17 at Shinewater on Tuesdays from 4-6pm.
The course is a 12-week weight loss programme designed to facilitate long term behaviour change and available to anyone with a BMI of 30 or over. Weekly sessions are run in small supportive groups.
