If learning to run is a step too far, then why not join our Empower Active Walking Groups, available in Port Talbot, Merthyr Tydfil and Llanelli. Walks are scheduled at the same time each week and are specifically focussed on encouraging individuals to take that important first step to becoming more active.
Empower Active Walking Group is just the first step to becoming part of our wonderful Purple Community - and provides numerous opportunities to get involved in a load of other Wellbeing activities, such as Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, and Surfing - plus more sedate pastimes such as pottery, afternoon tea and overnight trips.
Get on your bike!
Cycling is a great way to get active - exploring the stunning areas we live - the beach and the forest in Port Talbot, the Taff Trail in Merthyr and the beautiful Llanelli Coastal Path. We offer a half-day taught 'Cycle Confidence' course to help you build confidence if it's needed.
Living alongside a beautiful coastline, it would be remiss of us not to make full use of it. Our friends at Surf School Wales on Aberavon Beach, provide us with fantastic surf lessons, aimed at complete beginners - one of our favourite Empower Experiences.
Paddle Boarding and Kayaking
Our friends at South Wales Adventure Company at the Resolven Canal have taken us on some great adventures, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Kayaking and Canoeing..... the canal path is also a great place to have a gentle stroll. As always, there are lots of options available.
