How does it work?

Scottish Slimmers Works classes are super convenient. Trained Class Managers take the Scottish Slimmers class experience right into the workplace, usually on a weekday and at a time which is convenient for the company and attending members - a lunchtime or a time to suit a shift pattern or simply at the end of a working day.
  • Classes can be WEIGH & GO or full classes, lasting around 45 minutes. Timings can be flexible so that everyone who is interested in attending can take part
  • Courses are six weeks long initially but can be extended or repeated on request, depending on the level of interest shown
  • The six week course costs just 30 and is paid by the members or, sometimes, by the employer in advance
  • NEW! You can now choose a 6-week Online membership option or add Online support while you attend your Scottish Slimmers Works class
After the course has finished, anyone who attends the Scottish Slimmers Works class becomes a full member of Scottish Slimmers and is free to transfer and continue to lose weight at any of the public classes.
