United in Kind coach, Nick, is throwing his (now reducing) weight behind the #FindYourActive campaign!
‘Find Your Active’ is an initiative designed to encourage everyone to find their own, regular form of physical activity -whether that be gardening, light walking, participating in team sports, or gym activities.
The campaign aims to shine a light on all the different ways and opportunities to get moving around Essex, Southend and Thurrock.
Recognising that people often need a little support or encouragement to get active, the project is enlisting ‘Find Your Active Community Ambassadors’ , like Nick, to champion nearby opportunities, and help local residents find the activities that are right for them.
‘As someone who spent much of the pandemic not keeping active, I know how daunting and difficult it can be to return to a lapsed physical activity, or to take up a new physical activity, hobby or interest.
I have recently got into new positive habits of swimming or going to the gym, most days and as well as losing weight gained during lockdown, it has helped me to better focus my mind, structure my days, and generally feel better, in myself.
To find Your Active campaign is a brilliant resource for finding nearby activities, online fitness content and finding support, advice and encouragement from others through the ambassadors scheme. I am really pleased to be a part of it!”
