About

This Physical Activity and Health programme at Athlone Institute of Technology draws upon expertise from psychologists, dieticians, exercise and sport scientists and public health professionals to provide you with the knowledge and skills to improve the general health of various sectors of society using exercise programmes, physical activity and nutrition.

Overview

This is a unique Physical Activity and Health course at Athlone Institute of Technology primarily due to the multidisciplinary approach to physical activity and nutrition for public health. No existing course within the Republic of Ireland produces graduates with an in-depth knowledge of both physical activity and nutritional interventions, while bringing together the social, behavioural, biological and biomedical sciences to facilitate the development and improvement of existing interventional techniques.

Being physically active and having a healthy diet are important for people of all ages to maintain their health and wellbeing. As the number of people with diseases associated with physical inactivity and poor nutrition increases, the roles of exercise, physical activity and dietary behaviour in health promotion are gaining more importance.

Employment with Health and Fitness Centres/GP Exercise Referral Schemes, Fitness Consultant/Personal Trainer (Physical Activity and Health), Employment within large multinational companies based in Ireland as Physical Activity and Health Intervention Coordinators/Physical Activity and Health Coach for employees.
