The Momenta weight-loss programme focuses on the three key areas of mind, nutrition and exercise


out by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines on tackling the problem of obesity. Physiologists run a range of baseline tests including body fat, blood pressure and aerobic capacity to help shape the fitness programme. They also analyse factors such as sleep patterns, eating habits and stress levels to better understand if any of these are linked to weight management issues. The nine- month plan then features eight ‘touch


point’ sessions to help keep people on- track and motivated. The programme is available to every Nuffield Health member as part of their monthly fees. Progress is reviewed throughout the nine-month period, but each participant must work hard at home and in the office to meet their goals. Of the 150 people who have completed the full programme to date, the average reduction in body weight is 5.6 per cent, with a 7.1cm reduction

This fitness and nutrition journal allows physical activity and food intake to be recorded over a 12-week period. Users make a note of their goals, as well as baseline stats such as body fat percentage and circumferences. Fitbook can be used to plan workouts and record each session, as well as servings of each food group and hours of sleep. By physically writing in their own goals and efforts, say its designers, the journal helps to give structure and accountability to exercise and nutrition, thus aiding weight loss efforts. Fitbook can be sold in gyms as a secondary spend initiative for new and existing members.

DAVID LLOYD LEISURE – LOSE AND SHAPE UP This 12-week programme takes a ‘whole body’ approach. Each week consists of one exercise-based session and one educational session, where participants weigh in and receive group support and nutritional advice. In addition, online support offers access to exercise plans, meal planners, recipes and shopping list suggestions. Every Lose and Shape Up coach attends a two-day REPs-accredited nutrition and exercise course that focuses on shape change and weight loss. The programme is promoted to


new members by the sales team and to existing members by the fitness team. There are anywhere between 10 and 30 members per course, with around 900 members enrolled across the DLL estate. “Many members enrol with the intention to drop a dress size or lose a few pounds, whereas others want to lose a lot more,” explains Beale. “The average weight loss is 9lbs over the 12 weeks, and one member has lost an incredible 87lbs over the last two courses.” Members pay £129 for the course, which equates to less than £5 a session. “Clubs run two or three courses a year,
