A Better U

A Better U is a FREE 12 week lifestyle programme for adults and families in South Tyneside who are looking to lose weight, get fitter and lead a more active life. 

When you sign-up for our FREE 12-week programme you will attend weekly lifestyle education sessions that will support you to make positive changes that will become lifelong habits.

You must have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 25 or over (23 or over in South Asian Populations). If you don’t know your BMI, you can use the calculator here by simply entering your height and weight measurements. Our course is not suitable for people who are Type 1 diabetes or are pregnant.

Register your interest using the registration form opposite. We will call or email information about our programmes (we do not currently have any dates available). You are not committing to joining a programme, just to receiving further information. Your data will not be used for any other information without your consent.

We are also collaborating with Sunderland Football Club to offer their FIT BLACK CATS 12 week programme, that helps fans to make better lifestyle choices. You will meet other fans just like you and get to see behind the scenes at Sunderland Football Club. If you are 35 to 65 get your FREE place by visiting  or emailing or call 0191 563 4777.
