Getting fit for Summer, with a proper spring in your step!
Little bouts of Sunshine reminds us that Summer is on the way. But we’re not going to talk about getting that perfect body, or crash diets that ultimately do more harm than good. We’re talking about opportunities to get fit in a controlled, managed environment with a coach that knows how to help you get to the fitness level that you want to be at.
Beaminster is filled with amazing opportunities to become more mobile and active, and one such example is through initiatives like the one being held by Joe Allen Coaching who runs running groups in Beaminster.
Here’s more information about their upcoming Open Day on Saturday 21 March, and how you can become involved
