Swansea City stars support FIT Jacks as participants celebrate losing over 130kg
Swansea City AFC Foundation's latest FIT Jacks participants were joined by first-team players Cameron Congreve and Brandon Cooper to celebrate a combined weight loss of over 130kgs during the 12-week programme.
Club ambassador Lee Trundle was also in attendance, with the trio taking time to answer questions, sign autographs and pose for photos.
Week 12 of the initiative saw the participants take their final measurements, with the aggregate figures showing a loss of 133.5kg, and a 304 centimetre reduction in waist size.
Defender Cooper enjoyed the event and was glad to see the progress and camaraderie among the group.
“It’s been really great to be a part of the event, it’s great to see everyone come together and work towards something positive,” said Cooper.
“You can tell that everyone has had a great time, they all seemed to be having a great time and it’s good to see that they’ve enjoyed making this change.
“It’s really important to have someone who you can take part in something like this with, it will help motivate them and hopefully they can keep it going outside the sessions.
“If you’re thinking of trying it, just give it a go, you can meet new people with similar interests and help each other to achieve your goals.”
Laura completed the FIT Jacks programme and is a Swansea City season ticket holder, and she was delighted to be joined by Cooper, Congreve and Trundle for the celebration event,
“It’s brilliant that they were all there, it shows how important the community is to the Swans, my son even managed to get a photo as they were leaving,” she said.
“It was great to celebrate the end of the programme with the others in the group, it made me proud seeing what everyone had accomplished.
“It’s inspiring to be able to do this at the Swansea.com Stadium, how can you not try your hardest when you know the lads on the pitch run their hardest every week?”
