Congratulations to our service users in St. Michael's House Moyle Road Day Services who completed a 10-week exercise initiative by Ireland Active.
This exciting initiative encouraged older adults to get back 'Active'. Two groups from Moyle Road took part in a 1hour exercise session each week that worked on Balance, Mobility & Strength. The exercise class was carried out by the St. Michael's House Leisure Centre team. The two groups were very committed and worked hard throughout but mainly had fun and improved greatly on their movements !
St. Michael's House physiotherapist, Niamh, conducted a series of exercise measurements on week 1, week 5 and week 10 of this exercise course and found significant improvements in each participant at the end of the programme.
A big well done to all involved in Moyle Road who received their certificates at the end of the 10 week programme along with goodie bags provided by Ireland Active for getting involved and a big thank you to our Leisure Centre team who facilitated this course over the 10 weeks.
