Health and Wellbeing

Many informal activities such as kick boxing, zumba, and hip hop dance are as popular as the more traditional team and individual games and provide opportunities for friendship and social interaction. Apart from the health benefits of engaging in exercise there is the added bonus of learning new skills from professional coaches and the very special camaraderie, atmosphere and enjoyment that is part and parcel of IT Carlow Physical activity classes.  A range of other cross departmental initiatives, promoting Physical Activity, Health Well-being are organised throughout each year emphasising the fun, recreation aspect of staying fit and healthy, supporting the ‘Healthy Campus’ philosophy and encouraging greater participation in fitness activities.
