Get Inspired – An inspirational example to follow.

The Commonwealth Games has just ended in Glasgow and has been acclaimed as "the standout Games in the history of the movement"
The medal winners were inspiring and we cheered them to victory but we didn’t just focus on these few but all the athletes who took part. Every day there were outstanding examples of determination, hard work and refusal to give up.
So, what is the legacy of the Commonwealth Games? Well, one answer might be that every one of us should try to become more active. A simple commitment to increase the amount of exercise you do every week. Did I hear someone say “I don’t do any exercise at all.” Well, zero is a good number to start from and the only way is up. Not good at team or ball games? No, neither am I but I can walk and that is a starting place for most of us.
A simple, regular walk around your neighbourhood will give your new fitness resolution a kick-start. You will also find others who are doing the same and you will find yourself chatting to neighbours.
Would you enjoy a guided walk that starts from the local pub? No problem, we can organise that for you. Every Wednesday and Sunday morning The Walking for Health Group meets at The Rising Sun in Clanfield. Gentle walks in pleasant company in the most beautiful countryside - who could ask for more? See these links for more information and contact details. Rising Sun & Walking for Health
Not forgetting the Clanfield Joggers, a friendly and fun group who meet at Peel Park twice a week. They also organise a monthly walk on the first Sunday of the month. This is a bit more strenuous stretch of the legs but well worth the effort. And once you have honed your fitness to this level then you might want to try pulling on the running shoes and join the Joggers? Contact them today and ask what you need to do to get fit and start to enjoy jogging in the South Downs.
For those looking for something a little more strenuous there are countless local groups who run High Intensity training and Circuit training at local halls and community fields - Smart-Fit Training may be a great place to start - 30-40 minutes of exercise and you'll burn up to 650 calories!
Get fit, get active and get inspired!
