Walking to wellness

by | 0 comments

All too often we look at exercise as a way to burn fat.

Strengthen our bones

Improve our cardiovascular / heart health …

Which are all true btw..

However exercise has so many more purposes –

It is great tool to connect with self

Connect with others – gym glasses – walking groups – Community – dancing groups etc

Connect with nature – bush walks – beach walks

It is a way to reduce our stress – dependant on the exercise and the current state of your health – both physical and mental

In fact – walking has been shown to be the only form of exercise to lower stress levels and increase energy.

“So I was asked if I would create a walking to wellness group – for the very purpose of connecting with others  – self – and to learn and create common bonds to achieve goals.”

It was something I had not done before and honestly didn’t know what or how I would do it.

I have been a personal trainer for 15 years and run boot camps which had quite a different purpose to walking to wellness.

Yet this was different – it was a group of people who have now started to work together to support one and another – we bounce ideas off each other on how to reach each weeks goals – we share recipes that are healthy – we share photos of food  to maintain accountability – and we create accountability goals each week.

Each person is there with a different goal – that we have shared amongst ourselves and each person is being supported by the community and by me.

Instead of sitting in a room – discussing strategies on how to achieve our goals we walk and talk about the same things whilst reducing our stress levels – recharge our energy batteries and take in water and nature …..

It is exciting to see this group – grow  – enjoy and kick goals …

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining this beautiful community.
