Mature Movers 8 years and growing!
Mature Movers began back in 2008 in Navan Pitch and Putt Club. The programme was set up to get older adults more physically active. The programme runs for 8 weeks and includes activities such as movement for life, resistance training, core stability, balance, seated Pilates and bowls.
In 2008 we started with 15 participants, the initiative has steadily grown and by 2011 we had 45 participants enjoying the programme in Navan, following the success in Navan we expanded to the Trim area where had 35 participants.
In 2012 the programme was expanded further with another 3 new venues in Summerhill, Kilmainhamwood and Carlanstown. 2013 has been a hugely successful year for Meath Local Sports Partnerships Mature Movers Programme. Over 250 older adults have participated in the programme.
In 2014 Mature Movers was rolled out in 7 areas in the county and there was 300 older adults participating on the programme.
