About Us

Real Men Move


Real Men Move is an initiative that encourages Australian men over the age of 45 to take responsibility for their health by taking part in increased physical activity. Lack of physical activity is one of the leading causes of chronic conditions and creating a serious burden on Australia’s economy and health system.


We encourage men that no matter what condition they are in, moving should be an integral part of their lives.
