Why Move8?

Asia Pacific is home to two-thirds of the world’s population. That’s about 4.3 billion people on this part of the world stretching from India through to Southeast Asia, all the way north to Japan, Korea and China and all the way south covering Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands including Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea.

Initiated by sports, fitness & wellness news/media, AsiaFitnessToday.com – the Move8 Fitness Movement aims to reduce non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with a focus on reducing obesity rates in the region by half by 2030 in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals #3.

How will we achieve this?

By creating awareness about the importance of physical movement in our daily lives; using Rhythm & Movement as Therapy. Life is so much more fun when we move to rhythm, and let those positive vibes reverberate throughout every cell in our body. In other words, let’s Move it, LAH!

How is Move8 funded?

All profits generated from this movement via this website as well as through ground activation and other programs directly fund Move8. We intend to make movement fun and achievable by anyone and everyone. For partnership / corporate sponsorship inquiries, click here.
