Why Fitness and Lifestyle Management

According to Sport Ireland’s Irish Sports Monitor Annual Report 2017, the proportion of the population participating in sport is 43% with approx 1.6 million people benefitting from the many advantages that sport can bring.

The report continues that it is clearly very encouraging that ... those participating in sport have maintained their involvement. This is likely an outcome of a multitude of factors, including initiatives in recent years to promote physical activity, heightened awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles in maintaining a healthy mind and body, increased availability of a diverse range of sports to suit differing interests and abilities, and ongoing investment in the provision of sport in communities throughout Ireland.

The importance of fitness and lifestyle management is reiterated by a study carried out in 2008 by the Irish Sports Council and the ESRI, as quoted on ie, which states that the average person participating in sport is 14 years younger in health terms, that physical inactivity responsible for 6% of deaths globally, and that €1.6 billion is the estimated cost of physical inactivity in Ireland.
