The Story of MenoWell
The Story of MenoWell

‘MenoWell’ is our 6-week online evidence-based exercise, nutrition, and health education programme promoting strength and wellness for women in all stages of adult life. MenoWell was originally piloted in October 2022 and since then the programme has been delivered three times in county Laois with the support of Laois Sports Partnership (May 2023, September 2023, November 2023). During this time, we conducted a research study in partnership with DCU, Laois Sports Partnership and Sport Ireland to examine the efficacy of the MenoWell programme. Our research shows that it significantly increases women’s cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and perceptions of health and wellbeing. Importantly, it also significantly reduces bothersome menopause symptoms. You can read more about this research here:

There has been a lot of interest in the MenoWell programme since the initial pilot in Laois. A number of Local Sports Partnerships including Longford Sports Partnership, Sports Active Wexford, Donegal Sports Partnership, Cavan Sports Partnership as well as Healthy Monaghan and County Carlow Chamber have contacted EduFIT to deliver MenoWell in their respective counties.

To date, MenoWell has been delivered twice in Longford (September 2023, January 2024) and Donegal (Donegal County in November 2023, Arranmore Island March 2024) and once in four other counties (Wexford, Monaghan, Cavan, Carlow).

To date, a total of 1,975 women have completed the MenoWell programme and it is hoped that this number will significantly increase. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from both funders and participants .
