Marilena feels the health benefits of moving more

Active Derbyshire, Getting Started, News

Marilena, a community champion from the NG20 group, was inspired to move more after attending some training delivered by Healthy Chats CIC.

The training aimed to build people’s confidence to have more conversations about physical activity, and it helped Marilena to realise that moving more would actually help relieve her knee pain rather than make it worse.

After feeling the benefits of moving more, Marilena – who had always hated sports – also decided to start going to the gym and now also goes walking with her dog.
