2015: You are amazing and we thank you!!
As we come to the end of 2015 and our second year of operation, we thought we would share with you our highlights and achievements (and give you a sneak preview of what we have in store for 2016!).
We are so proud of these achievements
Working with real everyday people with real issues and real goals is very rewarding. Sometimes the issues are big like those recovering or dealing with life changing events; stroke recoveries, pregnancy, new mums, hip and knee replacements, neurological problems, depression, obesity, cancer, social disconnection, balance, pain and flexibility. The list is long and it’s personal, but the important point is that these people wanted to change, they wanted to enjoy life more and we are very proud to say we think we helped.
At other times, we smile because we simply introduce new friends. We provide a fun environment where communities get to know each other or high rise city people take time out to laugh with the person they have seen for 2 years but never spoken to. We pumped the air when we got into a pair of Lee Cooper Jeans, we gulped and cried a little as we slinked into a beautiful wedding dress and we cheered as we ran a marathon for the very first time (this lady had never run in her life!). Everything big and small is rewarding for us especially when it makes a person smile.
When you think about it, it’s amazing what you can achieve when you feel good
When you have a trainer that cares and motivates you to change. When you are with a group of people that want to get fit and feel good, but don’t take themselves too seriously. And when it’s outdoors in the sunshine or the rain, 🙂 you tend to forget some of the pressures of the day.
Finally, the very important point we would also like to share is that none of this would have been possible without the support of companies and councils who have enabled us to offer this service for free. These innovative thinkers see the importance of physical and mental health within our society, they want to make a difference. We thank them whole heartedly and simply say – they are great!
And 2016……… well, so far
60 new communities in the first 6 months of the year, some exciting new partners, new product, more inspiration and help with nutrition, story sharing and a national event to really get you going!
Our success is your enjoyment. Thank you for your support. Thank you for spreading the word. Have a very happy and safe holiday. Relax and enjoy yourself with family and friends.
We will be back 1 February 2016 but we’ll be touching base around mid Jan to see how you’re feeling and to get your 2016 goals sorted out!
