Who to look for: 
You will see the group gathered at the meet points mentioned above, if you’re a little late do not worry we will wait for you! On your first session your Coach (wearing Stride branded kit) will introduce herself to you, and you to the rest of the group. There will be a chance to chat through any questions you have, and during the session your Coach will make time to talk to you on a 1-2-1 basis about what you would like to achieve from the sessions so that she can best support you with your own individual needs.


What to bring:
A water bottle and light layers are ideal – easy to add/remove as required.

Testimonials
Here’s what our happy clients had to say about our services!

Simply Stride Walking Groups Essex

“I never expected to gain as much from the classes as I did. It was really nice to walk down the aisle knowing that my shoulders were not slumped, my bum wasn’t sticking out and my tummy was sucked in.”

Hayley Curno, Leigh-on-Sea
Simply Stride Walking Groups Essex

“I’ve never been one to walk and I’m not really an outdoor person. I just can’t believe how much I’m enjoying Stride, even when it rains! It’s brought such a change to my life as I feel fitter and much healthier. People have commented on how I look and I’ve dropped a dress size for the first time in ten years!”

Natalie Taylor, Thorpe Bay
Simply Stride Walking Groups Essex

“I suffer from arthritis, osteoporosis and serious asthma. Any movement can be very painful and frustratingly debilitating. Karen’s professional, personal and gentle service gave me the knowledge to progress forward with confidence.”

Bob Craven, Thorpe Bay
Simply Stride Walking Groups Essex

“Simply Stride taught me that there’s no such thing as a diet, you need to change the way you eat for life. As a result of changing my eating habits and regular Striding I’ve dropped a dress size and had to buy all new clothes (Yea!). I’m amazed and delighted!”

Caroline Monk, Thorpe Bay
