United in Kind coach, Nick, is showing his (now reducing) weight behind the #Find Your Active Essex campaign!
‘Find Your Active’ is an initiative designed to encourage everyone to find their own, regular form of activity – whether that be gardening, light walking, participating in team sports or gym activities.
The campaign aims to shine a light on all different ways and opportunities to get moving around Essex, Southend and Thurrock.
Recognizing that people often need 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 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 gained weight during the lockdown, it has helped me better focus my mind, 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!’
