BBC Scotland Producer, Paul Bradley has posted a new video diary as he takes part in Football Fans in Training.

FFIT, Football Fans in Training, is an initiative from the Scottish Premier League Trust that aims to address the health problems of Scotland's unfit males. The programme is funded by a donation of over £250,000 from The Football Pools, with additional funding support from the Scottish Government. Developed by club coaches in conjunction with top medical and sport science professionals, the programme targets overweight 35-65 year old males who take a 12 week course with sessions being split between classroom health education and physical activity training.

The first block of coaching took place at the end of last year and most clubs have started new sessions. Paul Bradley, who is taking part on the second block of Football Fans in Training, joined the session at Tynecastle with the guys from Heart of Midlothian and had a real eye-opener experience.
