Life expectancy is increasing year in year out, this is a simple fact. So, with this in mind, it is important we look to having a “Healthy Old Age”. And this term covers not only an increase in the number of years we live but the key is to avoid or prevent enduring chronic disease in our old age.

Last year, Claremont Stadium was the venue for the Athletics Ireland Memtrain Erasmus + programme which aimed to improve cognitive skills in mature adults by combining physical exercise + brain training. We were not the only group testing this project. It was used across other European countries.

The result was the development of the FIT4FIFTY+ . The idea is to get people of 55 years and older who are currently living a sedentary lifestyle to become more active, starting with a walk to jog program. Their goal being to be able to walk or jog for 2.5k or 5k.

If you are interested in taking part in this program please contact us at 046 9029693 and we will get back to you.

Fit4Fifty+ will start on October 15th here at Claremont Stadium at 10.30am The cost of the program is €40 for six weeks.
