DIT hosts Older Adults Fitness Programme

Posted: 29 April, 2016

DIT has hosted another very successful Older Adults fitness programme this year, run in partnership with Dublin City Council and Age and Opportunity

Recognising that regular exercise is important to everyone’s physical and mental health, the semester-long programme works with older people from the local community and is designed to encourage them to get back to enjoying fitness and exercise. 

The highly successful programme also involves DIT students of Leisure Management.  The students take part in workshops with Age and Opportunity and they develop the skills and knowledge needed to design and deliver fitness classes to older people, incorporating fun activities and games.
