LIT launch free three-week virtual Health and Wellbeing Programme


12 January 2021

Limerick Institute of Technology has produced a free, three-week programme “LIT Health and Wellbeing” introducing simple, healthy, sustainable changes that can help improve people’s lifestyles.

Drawing on the professional expertise of its staff, the LIT series will provide daily demonstrations on simple, nutritious meals and snacks; easy to follow home workouts; advice about desk mobility and movement; and reveal some selfcare tips and home treatments.

Staff, students and the general community are invited to log on to: every lunchtime at 1.05pm for just 20 minutes to discover some easy to follow tips that will have the people of the Mid West look and feeling better this winter.

Head of Department of Sport, Leisure and Tourism LIT, Elaine Barry said, “Originally we developed this New Year programme for the LIT community as a means of supporting our colleagues and students in beginning 2021 with a focus on health, fitness and selfcare. 

“With the increase of Covid-19 cases in the region we believe this short, accessible programme can also be of benefit to the wider community. We would therefore like to invite anyone who might be interested to join us every Monday to Thursday at 1.05pn until January 29, 2021 on LIT’s social media channels and website. The videos will also remain on the LIT website so that people can also catch up with our experts at a later stage.”

“Each video is packed full of tips, suggestions and easy to follow programmes. Sometimes the smallest of changes can have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing,” said Ms Barry.

The LIT Health and Wellbeing Programme begins on January 11, 2021 and will run for three weeks with each day concentrating on a different element.

  • Mondays will look at Nutrition with LIT lecturer and Performance Nutritionist with the Tipperary Senior Footballers Amy McGuire.
  • Tuesdays is all about the Home Workouts with LIT lecturer and former Kilkenny All Ireland Hurling Winner, All Star and current Offaly Senior Hurling Manager Michael Fennelly.
