Description:

Project Weightloss is a 12 week, community-based, targeted exercise intervention programme with concurrent healthy eating advice and monitoring targeted at overweight individuals.  Project Weightloss ran as a pilot initially back in September 2011 in Leisureworld Bishopstown and was supported by Cork Sports Partnership. Over 200 participants have since took part in the programme and it was and still is a huge success.  Late in 2012 with the support of the Health Promotion Department HSE South and Leisureworld, a two day training course was devised to train up interested and qualified instructors to deliver Project Weightloss so it would be available in other communities in Cork. This initial Leader training took place in early February 2013 in Leisureworld and again in Ballincollig in December 2013 and Project Weightloss is now operating in 9 venues for 2014.  The following report is an evaluation of the programme to date.
