MEMBERS of a fitness programme have taken to water in their quest to lose weight.

Men from Wigan Council’s Trim Down Shape Up spent a weekend at Crosby Lakeside with their lifestyle coaches to try their hand at activities including kayaking.

One of the activities saw the men try and walk across a narrow pole placed at water height which tested their balance skills and team work as they had to cross over with another member who would start at the opposite end.

Ivor Morgan, from Hindley, a peer supporter on the programme said: “Even though it rained it didn’t make a difference to the enjoyment of the weekend.

“I’d definitely encourage guys to sign up to the programme and then they too can get involved in extra activities like this.”

All men who join the programme will benefit from 12 weeks of free physical activity sessions and advice from trained lifestyle coaches.
