Shape Up Groups

Please note, our Healthy Weight services are no longer running from 29th March 2018 – find out more about the service changes.

Shape Up Groups are free, 10-week group programmes for adults combining nutrition, behaviour change advice and exercise.


  • Our Registered Nutritionists and Dietitians will guide you towards gradual weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.
  • They will show you how to eat a balanced diet, realistic portion sizes, how to read a label and discuss what triggers us to eat.
  • Friendly and approachable fitness instructors are there to encourage and support you with exercise suited to your ability.

Doing new things every week has really helped me stay motivated. I’ve found making small goals rather than trying to change everything at once much easier.
