At Easter Road, we support every Hibee to have a more healthy, active and happy life! With funding from Pfizer Foundation UK, we are able to expand our courses to include opportunities for men of all ages, women and the whole family. Over 12 weeks, our courses provide support for people to make positive lifestyle changes through nutrition and weight management advice, weekly activity sessions and personal challenges, and basic health screening in partnership with local health providers.
Hibernian’s ‘Football Fans in Training’ (FFIT) programme, sponsored by The SPFL Trust, is designed for overweight men between the ages of 35 and 65. Over the course of a 12-week programme, we help men lose weight, get fitter and be healthier.
Hibernian’s Still Game connects people aged 60+ with information and activities around the dynamic world of Hibernian football.
The programme runs for 10 weeks and involves people in weekly sessions that help them stay informed and connected through activities around healthy eating, music, the social history of Hibernian FC and physical activity.
Fit for Change
Graduates of our FFiT, Healthy Hibee and Still Game courses are able to continue their fitness regime with blocks of 12 weekly sessions at the Stadium. Whether it’s just keeping up with the toning and information, or aiming towards more progressive goals, we have something for everyone. Many of our group have gone on to complete half-marathons, full marathons and extreme obstacle courses, such as Tough Mudder and Spartan Sprint races.
Our Health, Fitness and Wellbeing programmes provide support for our supporters to achieve success through team work, camaraderie and good fun.
