Mayo Campus Movers is a new club, formed last year, around the belief that the more we move the better. Never has that been proven to more apt or relevant than in our current situation as we find ourselves housebound and deskbound for large chunks of the teaching day. It's fitting that this online fitness Initiative, which we are delighted to bring you, should spring from that club and that ethos.

The binding link between the two is Mark McGovern – instrumental in establishing the club in the first instance, Mark is also the force behind this initiative and indeed the face in front of the camera. He came to our attention last year through his phenomenal fundraising efforts for ocean conservation charities running the Dublin City Marathon in full scuba gear – an incredible achievement. His infectious enthusiasm is his trademark and this and his professionalism shine through the videos he has crafted and created.

Crafted because he has designed them specifically to suit your needs at this time with the following aspects:

  • The course contains a fit test at the start which is vital for you to gauge your fitness levels but also to act as a measure of your progress
  • Mark has posted a brief stretch/flexibility video that he recommends you follow before each workout
  • There is a downloadable excel timetable so if you are following videos on the various platforms you will know what sequence to follow them in
  • Mark has engaged a colleague who will be on screen allowing beginners and the more advanced to work at their respective levels
  • There is a further fit test halfway through the course


Created because from adversity springs creativity – this is not a way we had considered running our clubs and societies before but it may well be that as we adapt, and even once we have moved on from the current challenges, this will be a simple way of working out and keeping well and healthy that we can keep with us

The class structure will be 20minute HIIT/bodyweight training and when the stretch is factored in the whole thing shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes courses will start with a fit test and run for 4 weeks with classes running on Monday Wednesday and Friday.

Week 3 will start with another fit test so you can gauge your progress and the classes from the first 2 weeks will be repeated.

After 4 weeks a new course would begin with a new fit test and all-new classes

It promises to be a great Mayo Campus Movers initiative make sure you get involved
