World Physical Activity and Health Week 2023


It has been a week full of new activities to celebrate Physical Activity Week, promote Health and fight against the sedentary epidemic: Physical Activity, Movement and Sport for people's well-being.

Thanks to the powerful Physical Activity program that users receive and that they already have as a habit, it has led us to organize this healthy week with the aim of consolidating a message that has been with us since they started the Physical Activity program :

"More movement less disease. Exercise is the best medicine"

The seventh edition of this active week is made up of many activities that have been programmed for the users of the Montilivi i Llagostera Occupational Therapy Service and Llars - Residences in Fontajau i Sarrià to enjoy this day and, an important aspect to stand out, receive different learning methodologies from other professionals in the adapted wellness sector.


· Indoor Cycling session, by Cesc Massó. Space provided by the Municipal Pavilion of Celrà. Session oriented to the 90s, where the beginning of the day had a connection with everything that would happen the rest of the week, on a musical level.


· Healthy macro route through the magical surroundings of Banyoles Lake. Around 50 users have set themselves the goal of going around the Lake or part of it.


· Athletics tournament, 40 meters. Space provided by the Palau Municipal Pavilion in Girona. Tournament with qualifying phases where the competition was very present. The final contested between Toni and Adam, had Adam as the winner.


· Aerobics session. Space provided by the Llagostera Municipal Pavilion. 60 users have danced about 10 choreographies, worked on in the physical activity sessions, and had the opportunity to go up on a stage to show the learning. Then instructor Karen Repullo, aerobics instructor, made us dance to the rhythm of Abba, with the corresponding props.

Finally, the experience of dancing a joint choreography, monitors and users together, has been carried out, to conclude this magnificent week of health.
