Why not join Men on the Move this autumn

Are you aged 30 and over, male and not very physically active? Do you want to feel fitter, have fun, have more energy, and meet new people? If you do why not get involved in the Men on the Move at the nearest location to you in Mayo.

Men on the Move is an activity programme which is aimed at men aged 30 and over to get them active, have fun, and improve fitness levels. It involves weekly/twice weekly activity sessions which are leader led. You do not need to be fit to take part - the training sessions are structured so that you can find the level appropriate for you to join and progress your fitness at a pace to suit you. First established in 2012 in three areas, Men on the Move has now grown to 10 locations across Mayo. Indeed Men on the Move has extended to other counties including Galway, Clare, Donegal, Westmeath, Meath, and Waterford. The programme is a joint initiative by Mayo Sports Partnership and HSE West. It is also supported by Croí, Mid West Radio, local athletic clubs, family resource centres, and Men’s Shed groups.

How can I get involved? A number of information meetings are taking place at 10 locations across the county on the week beginning October 6. See below list of meetings with details of venue, date, time, and leader. Select the venue nearest you and go along and get your body mass index measured, obtain information on healthy eating/exercise, and sign up to an eight week activity programme.

To register your interest contact Mayo Sports Partnership on (094 ) 9047025 or text your name and what venue you are attending to the leader for each area. Take note that after an initial taster class there will be a small cost per session to cover costs/overheads. New areas such as Achill and Swinford will however have their initial eight week programme subsidised from the Sports Partnership and the HSE. Why not give it a go.
