rsz 1080 posts5Your Personal Best Month is an exciting project encouraging men to stop making excuses and to engage in 30 minutes of moderate physical activity five days a week. The campaign is being supported by various sporting National Governing Bodies, who will provide information, advice and programmes for men who want to become more active with resources available at www.sportireland.ie/. The campaign is also being supported by the nationwide network of Local Sport Partnerships, who will provide practical support on the ground.

It’s recommended that adults engage in 30 minutes of moderate physical activity five days a week in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Research shows that men over 45 are amongst the groups least likely to reach that target, so Your Personal Best Month is a chance to move the dial.
