Get Moving in Movember

Post Type

If you’ve followed my fitness journey for a while you’ll know I’ve done my bit for charity. Movember used to be about growing a moustache but as it would take me about three months to grow one, this was off the agenda! From the team that brought back the moustache, MOVE is a new way to fundraise for men’s health.


The concept is simple. Sign up to MOVE every day for 30 days this Movember. Get moving! Any kind of physical activity counts and raise funds for men’s health. Help yourself, help others – it’s a win win.


Here’s a little promotional video to explain more…



Help men live happier, healthier and longer lives. Together we’re tackling some of the biggest health issues faced by men – prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. We all know every step counts and when I started writing this blog, the idea was to motivate myself (and hopefully others) into looking after themselves a little bit better.


Just by moving on a regular basis can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer by up to 50%. Sitting is the new smoking!


One of the major partners for MOVE this year is Speedo and I wanted to highlight some ideas they have for you to get involved with MOVE.


‘Speedo a Mo’ is a challenge to get you active for 30 days by taking part in a number of moustached themed swims through the Speedo Fit app. Here’s a great little video explaining a little bit more…



Whether you’re a Mo Bro or a Mo Sista you have the chance to MOVE for Movember. 30 MOVEs in 30 days. How you MOVE each day is up to you. Swim a Mo and Save a Bro!


Use the Speedo fit app to keep track of your MOVEs and to see your progress. You can then post updates on your Movember fundraising page and share what you’re up to. Get your family and friends involved to MOVE as a team or challenge them to match your MOVEs.


For those who want to get involved, I’d recommend downloading Speedo Fit as Speedo are offering a 20% discount off swimming gear via purchases on the app. So what are you all waiting for? Get signed up now!
