Young people will learn the importance of including exercise in to their daily routine and how much they should exercise each day.
The Epoch experience will involve indoor and outdoor activities such as: HIIT training, kayaking, resistance training, camping, team building, orienteering, forest trails, dance, yoga and much more. All activities will take place in the surrounds of Sligo’s beautiful beaches and woodlands.
Our facilitators, Charles Harrison, Barry Mottershead and Dara McGarty are tasked with delivering this particular pillar of the program. All of whom have devoted years to their particular area of expertise, more information on each facilitator can be found on the facilitators page.
There are so many reason why exercise is important:
Young people need to reduce the time they spend sitting watching TV, on their phones, computers etc.
Being active is linked to better health, strong bones, muscles and improved self-esteem.
Epoch is a digital detox with strict put-it-away rules. However, facilitators and workshops will always have phones at hand to ensure parents can be contacted at anytime.
Participants will gain knowledge on how to maintain a basic level of health. All teenagers of this age group are recommended to engage in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity each day. This can be walking, cycling, running, swimming or simply doing an aerobic workout taught through Epoch.
