IPitup and ... EVERYBODY MOVES.
The main goal of IPitup is to make it easier to access physical activity, so that moving becomes a natural part of daily life again. For everyone and throughout life. Close to home, at work, in your neighbourhood and at school.
Figures from the European Commission show that an estimated 1 million people die each year from physical inactivity. We move far too little. This applies to children, adults and the elderly. Research shows that the main reasons are a lack of time and a lack of motivation or interest.
However, the benefits of sufficient physical activity are abundantly clear. Less risk of numerous chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes (40%), cardiovascular diseases (35%), falling, depression and dementia (30%), joint and back pain (25%), breast and colon cancer (20%). Other proven health benefits: better sleep, maintaining of a healthy body weight, less stress, improved quality of life.
