MOVE

MOVE is your commitment to getting active this Movember.

MOVE for men’s health this Movember and commit to anything that gets you moving a little more than usual, from walking to work each day, to taking a yoga class, to participating in a 10km run. As long as your Mo is moving you are headed in the right direction and taking positive steps towards improving your health.

Every MOVE counts.

 

So why MOVE?

Being active is one of the best things you can do for your health.  Making a MOVE can improve your general well-being and mental wellness not to mention it can combat fatigue, aches and pains, anxiety and depression.

Moving can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.1

The facts are clear; we all need to MOVE a little more. It is estimated that physical inactivity is responsible for more than 5.3 million deaths worldwide.2

Getting your Mo moving is free, easy and has an immediate effect. It’s one of the best treatments for good health, so make the first MOVE.

To hear more about the importance of moving check out Mo Bro Rob Dyer's video.
