The Portuguese Football Federation, as a sponsor of the EuroFIT Portuguese pilots and to establish the social norm in Portugal by being an example to football clubs, hosted the EuroFIT program at the City of Football facilities (home of the Portuguese National team). Eighteen participants, overweight and sedentary men, managers and staff from small football clubs, participated in the program. The feedback was extremely positive!
From the coaches’ point of view:
“It was an exceptional experience. All the participants increased their levels of physical activity and improved their eating habits. If they maintain this lifestyle, they’ll have a healthier life.”
Participants were also very satisfied for having this opportunity:
“Being here, in the City of Football, in the place where the Portuguese “stars” also play, being able to enjoy this atmosphere and to know some “legends” of the Portuguese football is incredible.”
“There was a big transformation, I would say almost radical eh eh.”
“I’ve learned a lot!.”
“It was a pleasure to be at this place.”
