Men on the Move 2017

Men Wanted

Do you want to start exercising?

Do you want to feel fitter and have more energy?

Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership has been working with communities in Thomastown, Castlecomer, Clara and Kilkenny (The Watershed) in 2016 to establish Men on the Move programmes.

Men on the Move is a physical activity programme that for adult men, to get them more active, have fun and improve their fitness levels. It involves once or twice-weekly physical activity sessions over 12 weeks that are led by a qualified instructor to meet your needs. The sessions are structured so that you can find a level and pace that suits you and the programme also includes nutrition and well-being seminars.

Taking part in the programme couldn’t be easier, simply turn up wearing comfortable clothes, runners and bring a bottle of water.

Some of the feedback from the participants in Kilkenny:

“Did a 5km today, haven’t done one for 20 years… Roll on the training sessions after Christmas.”

“Exercise helps with sleep and stress, and the talk about it helps to realise to do something about it, it takes time, but doing nothing about it, is easy, Doing something about it, gets easier”

“Men on the Move; Excellent to provide an opportunity for men to get involved in a social/activity group which can help their physical and mental wellbeing.

“Men on the Move helped increase my fitness and I found it to be a good social outlet”
