GET ACTIVE: Taking the first steps

More news, no ads


The weather is warming, and the Spring season is upon us to help put a spring in our step. Let’s continue this motivation forwards by taking the first steps to being more active.

With Covid-19 restrictions starting to ease and a new type of ‘new normal’ around the corner.

In terms of our activity, this may mean an increase as we start getting out and about once more. It is important to remember that increasing activity is a marathon and not a sprint – build gradually and safety.

Taking the first steps.
Taking the first steps.

Seek guidance if required and please keep safe, both with Covid-19 and the activity being taken up.

The key is to find something that is right for you, that’s fun, that fits into your lifestyle and works with your daily routine.

Active Fenland has a few different programmes on offer now and that are starting soon. With sessions for juniors, adults, and older adults we hope there is something you may like to try. All sessions are ideal for beginners, try it outers and returners!
