Get Strong Live Long: Were you born between (or around) 1952 and 1962? If so "Get Strong Live Long" just might be for you. In association with Damien Sheridan (Crott) and the Gaelic Players Association, we are delighted to announce that we will be running a 6-week program of physical and social activities for both male and female participants of this age group. There will be one evening session per week lasting approximately 60 minutes which is free of charge and, limited to the first 20 participants to sign up. The sessions will commence on Friday the 17th of November at 8pm in the Clubhouse and will run each Friday until and including December 15th. The program is part of a pilot initiative developed by past and current intercounty players and is being run in one GAA Club in Dublin, Kerry, Wexford and of course with ourselves in Longford. The first 6-week program has just finished in Wexford and has received rave reviews from those who attended, not to mention the improvements in their strength (22%) & flexibility (19%) which is so important for our quality of life as we age. The program has 4 main pillars: Improve basic strength through body weighted exercises; Improve overall flexibility; Education of the benefits of nutrition, lifestyle and the challenges natural aging can pose; Social - all of the sessions will include fun & stimulating challenges that will work the mind and all of which in an environment surrounded by friends. If you are interested could you please make contact directly with Damien on 087 912 6556 and he will answer any questions and sign you up. Please pass the word onto your friends or anyone else you know who might be interested.
