Akter Uddin – BIC
Akter joined the Football activity at the Bangladeshi Islamic Centre (BIC) and has reported that he enjoyed regaining his fitness levels and losing weight by participating in the activity. Akter and the other participants shared that they would have liked the programme to continue for a longer period than the 12 sessions.
Akter is currently looking at various gyms to join that are either close to his house or workplace; and he has also participated in a Half Marathon in Morocco to help raise money for a charity since the programme ended.
“This 12 week programme of Football has really showed me how unfit and healthy I was and has made me realise how much of a positive impact a few hours of football can have on my body and mind.”
