Incorporating contemporary well-being trends in the tourism industry, findings from an interdisciplinary research project
The GO Functional Improvement & Tourism (GO FIT) project is designed to develop a new learning program, a web platform and a multimedia application with transdisciplinary approach for exercise, health and tourism, in order for the experts/educators/trainers to achieve relevant and high quality skills and competences in designing the appropriate program for tourists and helping them to adopt a new healthy lifestyle.

In particular, the GO FIT project has been designed to address tourists’ needs to adopt a healthy lifestyle, involving functional exercise. The new blended teaching and learning materials will be used by academics and clinicians to train the exercise science students to enhance the quality and relevance of their knowledge and skills on: how they will be able to apply functional exercise programs for tourists during their holidays, to prevent musculoskeletal conditions and improve their functional ability of their kinetic system while triggering them to adopt a new healthy lifestyle (target groups: students & tourists).
The main goal of the partnership addresses the need to develop a new intensive learning program (focused on transforming ‘ideas into action’ in line with Europe 2020 recommendations) for exercise, health & tourism specialists, which acts as a catalyst for their own professional development.
