MoveWell

The Limerick Sports Partnership through its Physical Activity for Health section, MoveWell, will aim to educate, innovate and implement programs and initiatives for people managing chronic conditions.

What is physical activity?

Physical Activity is any body movement that works your muscles and uses more energy than you use when resting.

Why is physical activity important for our health?

  • In Ireland, an estimated one quarter of the population (1.2 million) suffer from cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic disease,
  • Half the population are overweight or obese,
  • Cancer affects one in three.
  • 10% of adults report having experienced a mental health problem.
  • The Mid-West of Ireland, in line with national trends is facing a rising epidemiology of chronic conditions (cardiovascular disease, stroke, respiratory and metabolic disease).
  • Chronic conditions account for 75% of all deaths.

How will we tackle this?

The Limerick Sports Partnership through its Physical Activity for Health section, MoveWell, will aim to educate, innovate and implement community based physical activity programs and initiatives designed specifically for individuals managing chronic conditions.

Why is MoveWell the right fit for me?

MoveWell programs will be a suite of adapted physical activity programs tailored to the needs and abilities of those with chronic conditions. Programs will be fun, informative and beneficial to the long-term management of chronic conditions. MoveWell programs will be a social space to engage in physical activity for your health with people who have similar experience and abilities
